Community walks and Cultural Experiences
In addition to the amazing wildlife adventures in Uganda in different national parks. Queen Elizabeth has rich Community walks & cultural history with a lot of fishing villages adjacent to the park. Visitors have opportunities to engage with local communities and enjoy the stories, music, and dance. The visitors can get to engage in the daily activities of the locals like harvesting and cooking a quick vegetable meal and making crafts.
Proposed Wildlife Tours Combined with Community Walks in Queen Elizabeth National Park
The Community Walks Initiatives Include
- Ikorongo Women’s Community – for cultural performances of dance, drama, music and fire-making, basket weaving, and paper beads.
- Nyanzi’s Biri Cave Community – view of the scenery around the cave. Historical cave and museum, paddle a canoe, hike to the transparent lake, spot primates, and birds, and taste local foods – from farm to plate.
Agro-Tour Community walks
Locals living in the Kichwamba escarpment, which makes up the eastern arm of the western rift valley, have an agro-tourism project where they take interested visitors to their farms showing you the local farming methods. You walk through the village sighting birds, and medicinal plants, and learn about how they combat the human-wildlife conflict as their farms border the national park.
