Day to Day
Arrive in Uganda
On arrival in Uganda, you will be met by a member of our awesome Camp Uganda crew who will transfer you to Jinja Base Camp (3-4 hours). Here you will have some time to settle in before an arrival briefing and camp orientation from our Camp Manager. In the evening, you’ll be treated to a traditional home-cooked dinner and have some time to relax.
Kirindi Primary Community Project
After a good night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast, you will head for the project site – Kirindi Primary School. Upon arrival you will have a project orientation and an opportunity to meet the community.
Day 03 - 05
Continue with project work
Due to a lack of resources within the community, local children do not have access to proper classrooms, and they are taught in temporary, unsafe structures. Over the next few days you will continue to work along side the local community on several projects that could include low level construction, painting, plastering and brick laying. However, it isn’t all just about getting your hands dirty. Your evenings will be spent playing games with the local children, learning about the traditional Ugandan way of life or skills such as making handicrafts as well as practising your Swahili.
Travel to Entebbe
Following your final breakfast at camp you will begin your journey to Entebbe. There will be time for a little souvenir shopping along the way in Jinja town and you will stop for a packed lunch at the source of the Nile. Upon arrival at your Entebbe hotel accommodation there will be time to settle in before a tasty evening dinner and a wildlife quiz.
Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Visit
This morning you will take a boat to Ngamba Island where you will visit a Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Surrounded by the peaceful waters of Lake Victoria, Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is home to 49 orphaned chimpanzees rescued from across East Africa. Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (Chimpanzee Trust), an NGO, is responsible for all aspects of the sanctuary. Deeply committed to and involved in both field conservation and community education, they work closely with the Ugandan government and wildlife authorities. You will spend the day at the sanctuary, learning about the work they are doing to protect Chimpanzees. There will also be an opportunity to see the Chimp’s being fed in the afternoon. At the end of the day you will head back to Entebbe by boat for a farewell dinner and a chance to reflect on your Uganda experience.
Kwaheri from Uganda
It’s time to say your final farewells (or Kwaheri in Swahili) to the Camp Uganda crew before heading back to the airport in time for your flight home.
