Drive through impressive landscapes on smooth tarmac viewing the unique geographical landscapes and small towns including Mpigi, Mityana, Mubende, and Kyenjojo.

In the late afternoon, you undertake a heritage tour to Amabere cave which is named after the live stalactite formation, Amabeere ga Nyinamwiru (literally, Breast of Nyinamwiru).

The breast-like features in the cave are believed to have belonged to Nyinamwiru, the daughter of King Bukuku who is said to have been so beautiful that no man could leave her alone. When King became weary of receiving marital requests from unsuitable suitors, he took the extreme measure of cutting off his daughter’s breasts to make her less attractive. But even this proved to be insufficient to deter Nyinamwiru’s many admirers, so the king hid her away in the cave now known as Amabere. Here, she was discovered by the King Isaza of Batembuzi, who impregnated her with a son.

Nyinamwiru remained in the cave with her baby because she lacked breasts, feeding him the cloudy limestone “milk” that drips from the cave’s stalactites. The stalactite-nurtured child grew up to become King Ndahura, the founder of the Bachwezi dynasty that ruled over the Bunyoro Kitara Empire centuries ago.

After visiting the cave, hike to the dramatic Fort Portal Crater field where you will summit the famous Kyeganywa hill which offers spectacular views of the crater lakes and crater hollows below, as well as views of the Rwenzori Mountains on a clear day.

Meaning ‘rain maker’ in the local Lukonzo language, Rwenzoris see higher levels of rainfall than anywhere else on the continent. These unique climatic conditions (a combination of very heavy rainfall and year-round exposure to the sun) have created in the Rwenzori a primeval landscape, draped in huge tree heathers, charismatic giant lobelias, rampant groundsels, everlasting flowers, and all manner of colorful lichen and deep moss.

Passport

Any world traveler interested in a Uganda safari or a Uganda tour is required to be in possession of a valid passport issued by the respective country of origin. Uganda immigration Authorities require that the passport copy should be 6 months valid and must have at least one page where the stamp can be put.

Regarding the citizens of the East African Community, it can be noted that they do not require passports to enter Uganda. They can travel under the admissible temporary document and use their national identification cards for identification.

12 Days Uganda Adventure Safari − GORILLA TREKKING TIPS

  • Carry plenty of water and some quick calories. The trek is relatively tiresome.
  • Put on strong hiking shoes/boots
  • Wear a long-sleeved shirt/t-shirt, thick trousers.
  • Strong gardening gloves for protection against stinging plants are also recommended
  • Bring a warm sweater/fleece as it is often cold at the outset
  • Carry a rain jacket or poncho since it can rain at any time in the tropical rainforest of Bwindi
  • It is also a good idea to have sunscreen and sunglasses
