On June 29, a group of youth decided to drive from Buganda Road in Kampala for a fun-packed getaway in Queen Elizabeth National Park in south-western Uganda.
I was privileged to be part of the team that I intended to feature in my show, Tusasanya, that airs on Bukedde TV every Saturday from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
The journey from Kampala to Queen Elizabeth National Park, the second largest park in Uganda and the most visited in Uganda, took about eight hours. We reached our destination at 7:30pm and off we slept.
By 5:00am on June 30, we were awake and ready to start our tour of the park.
We drove through the park in tour vehicles and saw leopards, buffalos and the famous tree-climbing lions, among other attractions.
We also visited the salty Lake Katwe, where many animals gather to drink water.
And that was a wrap for that day.
On June 31, we visited Kazinga Channel, the longest water channel in Uganda, which connects Lake Edward and Lake George.
Later, we drove to Fort Portal for zip lining and wall climbing.
By 4:00pm, we were done with the activities and drove back to Kampala.
