Uganda is one of the most popular safari destinations in Uganda blessed with a number of attractions spread across all corners of the country. However not all regions are as blessed as the western and eastern regions, the majority of the most visited national parks and attractions in Uganda are situated in the western region followed by eastern Uganda.
I go by the name of Nuwahereza Anthony and have driven to all regions of Uganda, I must confess that the parks and attractions in the west & east are easy to access and have the most sought-after attractions. I was assigned a couple from Iran by the names of Reza & Sanaz who wanted to visit Jinja, Kapchorwa & Kabale for a safari adventure. They decided to rent a land cruiser in Uganda with a driver and they choose me as their personal guide which I really appreciated since i hadn’t driven tourists from Asia.
Below is the 7 days Uganda safari adventure featuring locations, attractions, activities and accommodations.
Day 1- Airport Pick-up and transfer to Jinja city.
I picked up Rena & Sanaz at Entebbe airport in the evening and transferred them directly to Jinja checking in at the Jinja Nile resort hotel at 8 pm.
Day 2 – Jinja tour

Day 3 – White water rafting adventure.
After an early morning breakfast at the hotel, we drove off in our Land cruiser to White Nile Rafting – one of the best rafting companies in Jinja.
