Buganda Kingdom, of the Baganda people, is the largest of the traditional kingdoms in present-day Uganda. Buganda Kingdom is home to the nation’s political and commercial capital city Kampala as well as the country’s main International airport Entebbe. The Kingdom is rich in culture, including its clan system that is central to its culture and governance, its traditional attires and dances, and its rituals.
The Murchison Falls, also referred to as the Kabarega Falls, is a waterfall found on the course of the Great Nile. This is where the Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and cascades down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged with hippos and crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes. The vegetation is characterized by savannah, riverine forest and woodland. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hartebeests, oribis, Uganda kobs, chimpanzees, and many bird species.
To become the largest cross-country volunteer, cultural and tourism event for international delegates hosted by Uganda, teaching positive cultural, tourism and volunteerism values and giving back to local communities.
There is so many charity activities planned for this year’s tour, including: Hosting a mentoring and counseling day for girls at Rubaga Girls’ School, donating scholastic and sanitation materials to Katanga – one of Uganda’s largest slums, and donating tools for financial independence, such as sewing machines, to the ladies at The Remnant Generation – most of whom are survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
