My name is Charlotte – bampita Nagawa – and I am the Captain for your tour of the Pearl of Africa, where we shall be cruising at an altitude of between 621 and 6110 metres above sea level. Let me share my love of all things Ugandan with you. On our Uganda travels, we will encounter elephants, lions, birds, gorillas and chimpanzees. We will travel on foot, by bus, on quad bikes and rafts. With wall-to-wall sunshine, Technicolor 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!
