Uganda, Kayaking, Safari & Budget Help

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are hoping to go to Uganda in September 2006 for 3-4 weeks and are just starting the discussions on itinerary, etc. Neither of us have been to Africa before so any help is appreciated!

We've chosen Uganda because of the White Nile. We're whitewater kayakers and apparently a dam is in the process, which will obviously change the river signifcantly, so we'd like to paddle it before the dam is complete.

Our only 2 musts for the trip are kayaking (not sure how long -- does anyone here have experience kayaking in Uganda, or elsewhere in Africa? is 3-5 days enough?) and a safari. I've also done some reading about Ngamba Island, which sounds amazing. We'd love to do a trek to see the Mountain Gorillas, but know that it's pricey and may not be able to afford it.

I'd really appreciate some advice on budget (what is a low budget and mid budget range? Lodging? Meals? etc.) We're hoping that the land portion of the trip won't run us more than $5000-is this reasonable or totally underestimating it?; climate (is September a good time to go?); safety issues?

Again, ANY information is appreciated!
