Kampala, Uganda

— 8 nights
Kampala enjoys the reputation of a modern city with a buzzing atmosphere--it also serves as a good base point for exploring the surrounding area.
Step out of the city life by going to River Rafting & Tubing and Gorilla Bookings. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lake Victoria and StarMount Safaris. Get out of town with these interesting Kampala side-trips: Jinja (Itanda Falls & Nile Reptile Park) and Ssezibwa Falls (in Mukono). Spend the 2nd (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: stop by Kampala Fair, make a trip to Wamala King's Tombs, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Baha'i Temple, and browse the different shops at The Acacia Mall.

To find maps, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Kampala trip maker.

A vacation in Kigali, Rwanda's capital city and economic hub, lets you experience the very heart of a landlocked country from a pleasant, safe, and organized base point.

The adventure continues: stroll the grounds of Belgian Peacekeepers Memorial, take a stroll through Muslim Quarter, admire the masterpieces at Rwanda Art Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St Michel's Cathedral.
