Overview

The tour was developed by Uganda Bicycle Ltd., We have combined recreation with the highest safety standards, as our top priority. Therefore any healthy person who can ride a bicycle can join the tour.During the trip, which is limited to a maximum of 8 people per group, get to see the contrasts that Uganda has to offer. We visit local shops where they make Ugandan arts & crafts. Take a short boat trip in a longtail boat on Victoria lake and see luxurious villas and apartments side by side with poor shacks where people live.We visit local schools before riding through the greenest area of Kampala. There you might even recognize some of the plants you have at home, only here they are much bigger. During the trip we stop every hour for a short rest and to provide you with soft drinks or water. Halfway through the trip we provide a small local snack in a local restaurant.Book this trip in advance as availability is limited!

This unproportionaly expensive trip, was really a big disappointment. Bert - the owner - is a nice guy, but was not our guide. The guide - Usman - was not much of a talker, and 90% of the knowledge came from the questions we had...More

Bert Dassen is really nice guy. We spent a pleasant day travelling in the villages on our bicycle, talking to local people, listening to the stories told by Bert. His knowledge and involvement of Uganda people is excellent. Really our best day in kampala
