From Uganda's bustling capital Kampala head to the shores of Lake Victoria to fuel up with some of Namawojjolo’s famous street food before heading east along the northern shore of Lake Victoria to discover the source of the Nile at Jinja. From here, leave Lake Victoria and escape the crowds by heading north for some hiking in the rugged highlands of Karamoja and experience the untouched culture of the region’s nomadic tribes. Head back down south to the area around Mount Elgon National Park on the Kenyan border, where you can climb the prominent Tororo Rock, hike Mount Elgon and cool off in the natural pools at Sipi Falls.
