Travel to Africa on the Cheap

Greets to you all. I wish to introduce to you Afrika Budget Safaris a Community Based Pro-Poor Tourism Organisation based in Uganda also known as the ‘Pearl of Africa’ and operating in East Africa.

The establishment works within the poor communities promoting community based tourism and as of now has started very affordable group tours for any discerning traveller. The group tours have scheduled dates throughout the year running in a period of 10 days.

A considerable percentage goes back to the community and when on trail you will get to support the community through consumption of their food, crafts, music, dance and drama among others.

#The tours combine a great blend of culture, communities, wildlife adventure, water adventure and extreme sport among others. The prices are incredibly affordable and will give everyone an interactive travel and tour of the most beautiful places on earth.

The current trending program is for the dates of 26th January to 4th February and it is code-named ‘Adventure on the Great Nile’. Below is the program;

 Day 8: Hit the Nile waters again with seamless Sit-on-top kayaking which though not as adrenaline filled as the usual kayaking gives you a perfect morning of bliss as the cool waters make a perfect harmonious blend with birds in sing-song and thus will give you some great fun, return and relax at Nile River Camp. Have communal lunch at Hot Hot Guest House and after lunch hit the waters again with air inflated tubes and drinks on board especially the famed Nile Special Lager for a perfect Sun-downer Zen Power Tubing on the legendary Nile waters. Wind up at Green-light, the local bar with a rare touch of having fun. Should leave early though to avoid trouble with local rascals.

 Day 9: after breakfast have our last engagement and fun with the Bujagali Tourist Village including a village walk to engage with local craft women, hair dressers, ‘Rolex’ makers (Rolex is not a watch but yummy street food whereby fried eggs are mixed with onion, tomato, avocado, nutella and cabbage and then rolled in a chapatti. You will get a chance to make one and enjoy it). After lunch drive to Kampala and arrive late afternoon at Ndere Troupe Centre where we shall spend the night. We shall spend the night here and shall be entertained by the Ndere Troupe. Ndere means a flute.
