During the 4-hour drive you will slowly see the environment changing from a busy urban area into a green and peaceful setting. On our way you will pass the equator. There’s ample time for some pictures and a coffee and snack. You will reach your accommodation around lunchtime, which you can enjoy from a terrace with a magnificent view over the park. After lunch we will do a 20-40km ride on the borders of the park. Plenty of chances to spot wildlife like zebra’s, Ugandan kob, water bocks or a warthog.

    On the second day we will start cycling pretty early to be able to see as much wildlife as possible. Did you know that Lake Mburo also houses a family of giraffes? A group of 16 species was released in 2016 to help getting the fauna of the park back to its original state. Maybe you will spot one of these majestic animals. Today’s ride will be 20-40km and tailored made to your experience and fitness level. We can enjoy our packed lunch during the ride or make sure to be back at the camp around lunch time. There is time to relax and enjoy the sounds of nature, before we head back to Kampala. If you decide to stay another night there is an opportunity to do other activities!
