Tulambule a local Luganda word literally meaning “Let us Tour” is the most recent campaign that has been added to the Uganda tour drive portfolio mainly targeting domestic travel.
Noted to have kicked off on September 23rd at the onset of 2016 World Tourism Day Celebrations in Mbarara, the Tulambule Campaign aims at enhancing awareness about the Uganda Safari tour adventures and destinations and calls upon everyone to be part of this initiative.
The Government initiated drive is set to run in the last week of every month exploring the Uganda’s main destinations including the ten (10) National Parks where Uganda Wildlife Safaris and gorilla safaris in Uganda are carried out. The Uganda National Parks include; Bwindi Impenetrable, Kibale, Kidepo Valley, Mount Elgon, Mount Rwenzori, Lake Mburo, Semuliki, Murchison Falls, Mgahinga Gorilla and Queen Elizabeth.
The Government including UTB and UWA came up with an itinerary to be followed and then partner with the private sector in provision of transportation, accommodation, entertainment, security and safety. The apparent tour plan for the Tulambule campaign is September for Mbarara (just concluded), October for Jinja, November for Hoima and Masindi, December for Entebbe and Kalangala, January for Mbale and Karamoja, February for Kasese, March for Gulu, April for Kabale, May for Arua and June for Fort Portal.
The Uganda’s State Minister for Tourism Hon. Kiwanda Godfrey stands as the spear header of this initiative and the venture seems to be offering a long awaited group adventure escape for the locals and foreign residents in Kampala.
