Road Side Attractions Not to Miss in Uganda



Discover Uganda in the best way with a road trip through the most amazing national parks in Uganda. There are many roadside attractions which open gates to all Uganda tour adventures in every corner of the country. Indeed it’s the better way to enjoy Uganda safari tours bit cultural, natural or wildlife. No hassle of looking for them since they are found close to the road or just in a few kilometer distances.

Did you know that 90% of Uganda travel visitors on different Uganda safari holidays spare time and explore these attractions?, though others miss out because of their tight schedules either on the start day of the trip or the last day .Special obligations Make them rush especially catching up with their flight or tour activities in different parks. However, the logic is simple to plan well your Africa safari with enough time and space for transfers and adventure. Uganda has several Roadside attractions but the most visited include the Equator, Igongo culture centre, Community visits, the human born river Sezibwa falls, Mabira forest, the Rhino sanctuary, Buwama Crocodile farm and many others.

In just 72 kilometer distance from Kampala Uganda’s Capital, you find a poster of the Uganda Equator just aside on Kampala-Masaka high way in a village known as Kayabwe in Mpigi District. The Unique setting of the place attracts thousands and interestingly some traveler’s stops more than once to take photos and experience what takes place. Some choose to concentrate on photography first and latter return for Art & craft shopping either way or even decide to do both. If lunch time finds you around, order for a delicious bite in one of the Restaurants around the equator and even spend some more 30-40 minutes chilling before proceeding to your next destination.

Have you ever wondered how it feels to see two halves of the world?, a new experience which comes only in Uganda where one stand putting one foot in the southern hemisphere and the other in the northern hemisphere. After that also take a look at the line drawn in the middle of the road with a headstone indicating the two sides of the world. The water experience makes it again more interesting as you look at water draining clockwise on the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise on the southern hemisphere. In addition the attractions are a main highlight to all Gorilla & chimpanzee tours to Uganda.

More amazing stops still come your way as you drive towards Mbarara town in Kiruhura district a blessed town with both national, Lake Mburo and a cultural centre just close. Do you love foreign culture and people, Igongo culture museum open for you any time of the day for both local lunch and cultural exposure? It’s a great place for a lunch break especially if you left the capital just after breakfast. The best leading recreational culture centre complex just a few kilometers to Mbarara town offers you a glimpse of the Uganda Bantu culture as well as an excellent traditional meal that’s if you feel like tasting what Uganda people eat. The whole afternoon is ideal for further exploration of the place. The cultural centre is well set with even lodging facilities in case it gets dark, Igongo Country Hotel.

The hotel is Ideal for travelers who wish to view wildlife in Lake Mburo national park, take leisurely afternoon boat ride to view more wildlife and birds, and also enjoy the horse riding safari in the wildness of Lake Mburo national park. Guests here don’t remain the same no matter despite the minimal time they spend around.

Are you a fun of the Africa Big Five Animals? Here is a chance in Uganda to meet one of them in just a tour stopover. All Uganda Rhinos are found here though most tourists to Uganda visit this sanctuary as a stopover destination either to or from Murchison falls national park. In most cases no wildlife trip to Murchison falls ends without to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Tourists get a chance to take nice Rhino photo shots and also walk through their natural home as they learn and understand more about their daily life and behavior.

Some even donate to the fund for more conservation of these unique animals. I would recommend you to track them all through the savanna on foot and shares impressive expertise of these animals with experienced guides but remember to bring insect repellents, Bottled water and snacks as cutesy though you can buy eats from the sanctuary restaurant, light long sleeved shirt, comfortable walking shoes, Sun screen since the walk takes two hours in the savanna vegetation plus swamps. Don’t forget to make roadside stops the while on a Uganda safari holiday or the next time you hit the road in the pearl of Africa.
