The most fundamental aspect to honeymoon bliss is the location couples pick as a haven for some romantic solitude. The Pearl of Africa will not only make your honeymoon dreams come true, it will provide you with sheer excitement and infinite adventure. Look forward to take total pleasure in your honeymoon with total wilderness:
1. Go Gorilla
When you are honeymooning in Uganda, do not miss out on the Gorilla trekking part. The dark and dense forest of Bwindi is the only place in Uganda where you can spot mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. Imagine when you are so close to those untamed gorillas and all you have is your camera equipment, how quick your pulses will raise with total anticipation. After your adventurous hour is over, you will leave but very halfheartedly.
2. Hook a fish
Uganda will not only thrill you with wild animals and dense forests, it will also unwind you with activities like sport fishing in its many lakes and rivers. For instance, if you travel to Lake Victoria, trolling with the help of bait is the technique applied. If you go over to the Nile, there is the option of perch trolling and you could either get your own equipment or take it from the authorities.
3. Climb a mountain
The Rwenzori Mountains national park is one of the most magnificent places in Africa. The national park encompasses the central part of The Rwenzori Mountain ranges. These ranges have the Mount. Margherita, Africa’s third highest peak. Other than that, there are five more peaks with everlasting snow and three glaciers. No wonder, this range is also known as the “Mountain of the moon”. You might be a skilled mountaineer or you might just be an informal backpacker, you cannot ever ignore this mystifying mountain range.
4. Row Row Row your Raft
Beat the busy streets and go the natural way for honeymoon in Uganda is way too extraordinary. Raft your way down the river Nile and take the ultimate ride of your life. There is this longest river in the world with oodles of sometime feral and sometime placid water. Here, you get to experience some adventurous rafting with your special someone. The best is yet to come because in the last part, there is a bungee plunging of 143 feet into the river to make your heartbeats race.
5. Bird Watching
Uganda is overflowing with picturesque marvels, loads of wild animals and around 1040 genus of birds. The place is the ideal destination of the bird watching buff. You could even discover and name your own species of birds. Pay a visit to the unaffected swamps, thick woods or open savannah woodlands to observe both common as well as migratory birds.
6. Hike of the lions
While you visit the Queen Elizabeth National Park, you also wander off the trampled trail to the Ishasaha Plains with its most remarkable tree climbing lions. Some say, these lions clamber the trees to save themselves from the Bites of the Tse Tse flies. But whatever the truth is, watching them idly perched up on the trees is surely a rare sight to be seen.
7. Culture Curry
Uganda has a lot more to offer other than just wild animals and natural marvels. Ahead of all this is the real treasure of Africa and that are the inhabitants of Uganda. Make your honeymoon a little more enriching by meeting the locals, partaking in their cultural activities and understanding some of their customs and traditions.
8. Wild Ride
Uganda is an abode for a profusion of wild life species. The star attractions are the lions, elephants, leopards, zebras and giraffes. Apart from them you can also encounter the Impalas, baboons, hippos and wild buffaloes. One cannot ever miss those hissing snakes of course. So forget about the ordinary boring honeymoon and make way to the exciting part of your lives.
9. Chimp a long
Do you know Chimpanzees are our nearest relative in the animal kingdom? In Uganda, you can actually have close encounters with your chimp relations. There are over 5000 chimpanzees found here. They are quite habituated to us humans, so do not fret if they stop and pose for the camera.
10. Capital Pleasures
You cannot get out of Uganda without enjoying the capital city of Kampala. It is a beautiful city built on seven hills and bustling with life always. Kampala is green, exciting and quite a historical city. You could roam around the many markets, shop for the local stuff and have super fun on your honeymoon.
