My name is Charlotte “bampita Nagawa” and I’m the Captain for your tour of the Pearl of Africa, where we shall cruise at an altitude between 621 and 5,109 metres. Let me share my love of all things Ugandan. On our Uganda travels, we’ll encounter elephants, lions, birds, gorillas and chimpanzees. We’ll travel on foot, by bus, in a dugout canoe, on quad bikes, boda boda, rafts and even by train! With wall-to-wall sunshine, blue skies and lush greenery, Uganda truly is ‘the best of Africa.’ Many countries boast of having the friendliest people: you will meet them here in Uganda! Read more about the Muzungu or contact me. I’d love to hear from you! Diary of a Muzungu. Best Digital Tourism Media 2017, Tourism Excellence Awards, Uganda.
