Visit to Kampala, Uganda & Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
10 days - October 6 - 15 2017 $3,895 per person
Kampala is Uganda's national and commercial capital bordering Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake. Hills covered with red-tile villas and trees surround an urban centre of contemporary skyscrapers. In this downtown area, the Uganda Museum explores the country's tribal heritage through an extensive collection of artifacts. On nearby Mengo Hill is Lubiri Palace, the former seat of the Buganda Kingdom.
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Over the last century, Dar es Salaam has transformed from a sleepy Zaramo fishing village into a thriving, striving, smoke-belching metropolis of over four million people (and growing). Straddling some of the most important sea routes in the world, it is East Africa’s second-busiest port and Tanzania’s commercial and cultural hub.
At the northern end of the harbour is the Kivukoni Front, with a bustling fish market where dhows dock at dawn to offload the night’s catch. There are also excellent craft markets and restaurants and nearby sandy beaches and islands. The city’s architecture is a mix of African, Arab, Indian and German, although the quaint colonial Lutheran Church is now dwarfed by towering high-rises which reflect Dar’s rising prosperity in the golden-hued sunsets shimmering off their glass exteriors. Many travelers bypass ‘Dar’ completely; those that stick around will be rewarded by the city’s eclectic cultural mix and down-to-earth vibe.
