Before the trip

  • Program discussion

We meet in Belgium (or online) to discuss the program and set it to your needs.
After mutual agreement – the clients book his flight tickets (the earlier the booking the cheaper the prize) and
a departure briefing/meeting is followed two or three months prior to departure.

D1 Welcome to Uganda

The flight brings us to Entebbe, the former capital city of Uganda. The
AllrideAfrika team awaits you at the airport and brings you to the ViaVia. We enjoy a late-night drink before
going to bed.

D2 The Urban Jungle

We enjoy a short walk in Entebbe while the bikes are getting assembled by our
mechanic. We exchange money and get a local sim before our transfer to Kampala.
The first ride in Kampala starts from the city center and explores the outskirts of town. The urban jungle
brings a real African experience and first touch of Uganda. We are welcomed in our basecamp in Kampala by
Florence and her Ugandan team.

The ride – 60KM+1200HM HARD / 40KM+700HM EASY

D3 The Real Jungle

From the Urban Jungle to the real Jungle. We sleep a little longer – ride out from the basecamp and take the bikes out
on the boat. We cross the Victoria Lake where we will ride in our single-track paradise. No cars or traffic but a green
jungle and some first animal encounters.

The ride – 85KM+1100HM EXTREME/ 65KM+850HM HARD/ 30KM+350HM EASY

D4 Kyaninga wonders

Early wake up and transfer to Fort Portal and our next basecamp on the edge of a crater lake. We jump out the car and
ride towards the lodge – a small but wonderful ride along the ridge of crater lakes in the shadow of the Rwenzori
mountains.

The ride – 32KM+550HM

D5 Riding The Rift

Another ride in Fort Portal with magic views over the Albertine Rift Valley. Steep climbs and single-track descents
close to the valley form our playground of the day. We drop by in Fort Portal town for lunch, have a relaxing afternoon
after the ride and visit a local Ugandan family for dinner.

The ride – 45KM+1100HM

D6 Crazy Craters

A long day in the saddle after a stunning breakfast with a view. From one crater lake to another, passing by rural
villages and schools. We pass the Kibale rainforest and end the long journey with a cocktail at the swimming pool.

The ride – 85KM+1650HM EXTREME / 60KM+1200HM HARD*

*Other rides possible

D7 Kibale to Queen

The start of the 7th day is flexible. We can sleep longer, relax at the pool, go for a massage, swamp-walk or community
experience or just ride our bicycle again.

The VAN brings us via a short transfer to Queen Elizabeth park after lunch where we go for a boat safari to spot some
Elephants, hippo’s and maybe crocodiles.

D8 Safari in Queen

Safari time! We wake up early in the morning and jump in the van to spot the big five as we ride through open savanna
landscape. A transfer to Lake Mburo is scheduled in the afternoon. We can opt for a small ride in the afternoon to
prepare our legs for the big ride tomorrow.

The ride – 30KM+300HM

D9 MTB Safari Mburo

Time for a real MTB Safari-experience during our last full day on the bike. We combine broad dirt roads in the Mburo
park with singletrack outside the park. We start easy and head for the Mburo lake while trying to spot some ‘game’.
We leave the broad ways after and ride via some Savanna singletracks back to the lodge.

The ride – 80KM+700HM HARD / 55KM+400HM EASY

D10 Kampala by night

We head back to Kampala after either a morning safari or morning ride. A quick stop and picture at the Equator and
on to Kampala where we have time for visiting craft markets, African clothes markets and souvenir shopping. We enjoy
dinner in town and might go for a dance.

D11 Fly out

A cultural boda-boda tour (riding through town on the back of a motorcycle) in the morning gives us some cultural
background on the city and its special places before we go home.

We head to Entebbe in the afternoon and take our time for assembling the bikes, having dinner and saying farewell to
Uganda.
