WHAT TO EXPECT

Uganda is a land ful of contrasts and a feast for all your senses. Your tour itinerary will take your through misty mountains, to open savannahs dappled with wildlife, hills of tea plantations, lush jungle and rainforest and some of its spectacular water bodies. Four of East Africa's Great Lakes–Lake Victoria, Lake Kyoga, Lake Albert, and Lake Edward–lie within Uganda or on its borders.

Although the highlight of this tour is the Mountain Gorilla Trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, it is also jam-packed with visiting some of the most spectacular nature attractions Uganda has on offer. Expect much more than just a motorcycle tour - be prepared for an unforgettable experience.The tour starts and ends in Entebbe. We explore Uganda in an anti-clockwise direction for a lifechanging Silverback Mountain Gorilla Trekking experience, ride through the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Lake Albert, Murchison Falls and Jinja the source of the Nile.

With a good mixture of tar and gravel roads you can be assured of a real Africa adventure. Sound intermediate riding skills are required. Pillions are welcome, as long as they are comfortable riding with you off-road and for longer distances.

Like all our other tours, the Uganda tour is designed for small groups of between 5 and 7 bikes, to allow for a more personal experience.
