Uganda is an incredibly beautiful country full of friendly, hospitable people. Some of our favorite travel stories come from Uganda and we share them in this podcast.

We discuss:

  • The food, equipment and clothes that we packed for our backpacking trip through Africa
  • The surprising now tourist attraction, which was simply a means for us getting around. (although a huge wonder of Kampala)
  • Why we feared, yet loved, getting around Africa
  • The home remedy that cured my nausea shared by my African Mama, Marion
  • Why Lake Bunyonyi is a dream destination
  • How we attempted the Muzungi Corkscrew
  • Our roughest journey ever and our most told travel story – it’s not the gorillas (but getting there with Benson and the prisoners)
  • Spending an hour with the gorillas in Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest
  • What it was like to be charged by a silverback gorilla
  • The incredible and adventurous experience white water rafting the Nile River – home of the Bad Place one of the most notorious Grade 5 rapids in the world. (Correction. The Nile only has freshwater crocodiles. I had a brain fart and said they were saltwater.)

  • Tours of Kampala Taxi Park
  • White water rafting the Nile River
  • Gorilla trek in Uganda (it will be cheaper to organize it yourself. But if you want ease and convenience this was the best value for money tour I could find for just the gorillas. The longer G adventure tours below would be the best value.)
  • Information on Gorilla permits
  • G Adventure Uganda tour includes Lake Bunyonyi, Gorillas and Whitewater rafting
  • G Adventure tour as above but also includes Kenya
