Best Camping Trips from Kampala
Camping is not for everyone. Some travelers enjoy being out in the wild and in touch with nature. For some, the thought of leaving their comfortable bed and hot shower behind is nothing short of fearsome. Luckily Uganda has both the rugged camper and the glamper (glamourous camper) covered. Here are three of the best camping sites for every traveler. Jovago has a range of hotels that also cater to campers whatever your budget from as little as $7 per night.
1. The Haven (Jinja)
The perfect set up for the everyday glamper. Haven is located right on the banks of the Nile. The facility includes hot showers, WiFi, a fully stocked bar, swimming pool and for the extremely nature repellent, beds at an affordable price. ( Image: Haven Uganda )
2. Lake Mburo
For the safari camper, Lake Mburo is the ideal spot. Bordered by the Lake Mburo National Park, the site is perfect for travelers interested in taking game drives and nature walks. The park boasts of over 350 bird species as well as zebras, impala, leopards, hyena, reedbuck, buffaloes just to name a few. ( Image: kerdowney.com )
3. Sipi Falls
Ideal for campers looking for a picturesque getaway. Sipi offers breathtaking views from all angles. Campers also enjoy being lulled to sleep by the sound of the roaring waterfalls. There are a number of camping sites all nestled on the slopes of the escarpments. ( Image: KoiKoiUG )
The Splendid Longonot – Mt Longonot National Park
A rewarding view of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha meets you at the top as is a virgin forest of small trees covering the crater, with steam vents spaced around the walls. Longonot is home to Buffaloes, Gazelles, the Impala and giraffes with rare sighting of leopards.
Funny Encounters at Tsavo East National Park
Tsavo East has got to be one of those Parks I walk into and; baboons & warthogs look at me like we’ve met before.
