Uganda - Nile Horseback Safari

This adventure starts in Jinja and heads north from Lake Victoria exploring from horseback the banks of the Nile and rural Uganda.

Experience views from the hills overlooking the Nile valley with canters through the plantations and surrounding Mabira rainforest. The forests are home to a number of species of primates including the rare Grey cheeked Mangabeys, although these aren't very easy to see.

During the trail you overnight at very comfortable lodges and finish with one night at the fantastic Wild Waters Lodge which is located on an island in the middle of the Nile surrounded by white water.

After the ride there is an optional 3 night extension to fly west to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest home to one of the few remaining populations of Mountain Gorilla. The trek to the gorillas is long and arduous but the effort is rewarded by spending time observing them closely while they eat, play and rest. A unique and unforgettable experience.

This trip was a wonderful experience of real Africa as well as seeing that icon of Africa - the Nile and visiting the endangered mountain gorilla must be on most people's bucket list.
My top tip:
Use your spare baggage limit and fill your bags with children's books (second hand is fine). They are almost impossible to get locally and so you will be leaving something which will be of immense value to the hundreds of school children you see during the ride.
