ARCADIA LODGE LAKE BUNYONYI, KABALE

Paula organized a trip for us this past women’s’ day weekend to Kabale for gorilla trekking and a general much needed siesta. I never really had any intentions of ever trekking as the idea had never really appealed to me but Paula seemed keen and I’m normally down for a good hike despite my utter ...

LAKE ALBERT SAFARI LODGE

HOIMA DISTRICT. Paula hit me up during the week about this place she’d heard about in Hoima. She suggested we go check it out over the weekend to which I obliged. I really enjoy her company and it sounded all so organized. Saturday came and off went bright and early on the 3 hour drive to get there. I&...

THE CANOPY WALK: NYUNGWE NATIONAL PARK.

I got to know about the canopy walk in Nyungwe National Park a few years ago, like a weird worm implanted in my head, it grew and grew until I couldn’t ignore it burrowing deep in my lizard brain. I had to see it. I had to do it. This excursion was one of my primary reasons for ...

FAZENDA SENGHA

While on the net looking for fun things to do in Kgl, I came across Fazenda Sengha, a horse ranch. I love horses so any chance to be around them, I’ll take it. Just after Christmas Alex, Sandra, Nicholas and I decided to go check it out. We got a MOVE, Kigali’s’ alternative to Uber ...

KIGALI GENOCIDE MUSEUM

The first time I was in Kigali in 2015, I visited the Kigali Genocide Museum. It was such an eye opening, informative, educational and all round heart wrenching experience. There was so much I didn’t know about the 1994 Rwandan Genocide. This museum serves as a memorial centre commemorating said genocide and is the resting place of the remains of ...

RWANDA

It’s been a good four years since I’d been here, my last experience was pretty shitty and left me feeling completely convinced I wouldn’t be heading down here again, ever! Thing is though if I’ve learnt anything in life, it’s to never say never as sure enough here I am ...

KAMPALA.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SEVEN ORIGINAL HILLS. In honor of Independence Day. I thought I’d do a post on my beautiful, chaotic, charismatic city Kampala. Months ago, I went on one of those sightseeing tours taking a very enjoyable ride in and around Kampala exploring what were and are the original hills that make up Kampala. These ...

MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK

PARADISE IN THE WILD, THE WETTEST BOAT RIDE &THE ELUSSIVE LEOPARD. Leaving the rhino sanctuary, a great start to the safari, we stopped off for lunch at the Kabalega Diner, this place is really nice.

While we were at it, we decided to go on safari, settling on Murchison Falls National Park. Going that route also means the added bonus of visiting the rhino sanctuary, it being on the way. Ziwa Rhino ...
