KIBALE FOREST –  
 
BIGODI SWAMP WALK  
This a relatively easy walk on a well marked trail with duck boards across the wetter areas. If very wet when visiting, there are rubber boots for hire, mainly for the mud, but should not be necessary in January. Regular hiking boots are generally adequate.
The walk lasts for three to four hours and can be orientated toward birding or primates. Primates generally seen are black and white colobus, red colobus, grey cheeked mangebey, red tailed monkey, L'hoests monkey, vervet monkey and olive baboons. For the keen birder, the walk is very rewarding and even for others some of the birds like great blue turaco and several species of kingfisher are a pleasure to see. This walk also includes cultural aspects of the area, as one is often walking through or near to farm land.
NOTE. This is a local community project.
$55.00 per person (minimum 2 people)  
 
BWINDI IMPENETRABLE FOREST -

Birding can be good in the early morning and late afternoon. This is a non-guided trail and is therefore free of charge.

It takes about 3 hours and leads for 2km along an abandoned road before crossing the Muyanga River several times on the ascent to the 33m-high waterfall. Bathing is permitted at the bottom of the waterfall and often required after the relatively tough hiking. $80.00 per person

Virunga Mountains. $80.00 per person

Visit Bwindi Community Health Center
Bwindi Community Health Center or as it is affectionately know, Dr Scott’s Clinic, was started by US Missionaries in 2003. They came to Uganda with a mission to the Batwa Pygmies who had been evicted from Bwindi Impenetrable Forest after it was gazetted as a National Park in 1991. People from the nearby parishes use the Health Centre for everything: outpatients for all health problems, delivery of babies, vaccinations, treatment of TB and when they become seriously ill and need admission to the wards. Sometimes very sick people are carried for miles on a stretcher by villagers.  Dr Scott’s Clinic is about 2km away from Gorilla Forest Camp and can be walked or you can be transported by you driver/guide.  
A visit to Dr Scott’s Clinic is free of charge and well worth the visit.  
 
Batwa House Building Program
The Batwa House Building Program is run by Bwindi Community Health Center. It aims to provide permanent homes for the hundreds of Batwa Pygmy families who live on land surrounding Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.  Your donation provides a Batwa Pygmy family with a 15 by 15 foot home. It has a kitchen, living quarters and a tin roof to keep out rain during the wet season. The home is constructed using local techniques and supplies. We highly recommend that you take part in the final stage of construction, the process known as ‘mudding’. This happens after the structure has been built, the tin roof has been secured and reeds have been woven to make frames for the walls.  
For a donation you can provide a Batwa Pygmy family with a permanent home and have an experience to match that of visiting the gorillas. The money you pay covers all the tools, supplies and other expenses involved in building a house (see page for breakdown of costs). If this is booked far enough in advance, the majority of the house will be built before you arrive, so you can take part in the mudding and see its’ completion.  From $495.00 Donation per house

JINJA
 
WHITE WATER RAFTING IN JINJA
Half-day, full-day and overnight white water rafting excursions are available from Jinja.   
 
The white water rafting is done in paddle-rafts, each person joins as a member of a team and a professional guide captains the team. Paddlers are instructed comprehensively on how best to enjoy themselves on the water and on all aspects of safety including the use of safety kayaks which accompany every raft trip on the water. The highly trained safety kayakers are world class paddlers who adeptly pilot their kayaks through the rapid ahead of the raft. When the rafts flip upside down or people are washed overboard they are nearby to provide assistance in getting people back to their boats. 
The trip on the water begins slowly and the first few kilometers give the raft guides an opportunity to train everyone on all aspects of Nile rafting. The river becomes much more adventures at Bujagali Falls and one major rapid follows swiftly after another for most of the morning. Once the rafts enter Wildwaters Reserve (protects the unique flora and fauna of the mid-stream islands of the Nile), there is more time between the rough water but the rapids become larger and more spectacular. At Itanda (The Bad Place) the Nile is too powerful for the rafts and so the rafts are taken around the top by land.
The grading of the rapids rafted on this stretch of the Nile range from 1 – 5. At each of the larger (higher graded) rapids you are given the option of whether you want to go the hard way (through the middle) or the easy way (around the edge). The choice is voted on, however, it might not always turn out the way you expected because you (everyone in the raft) if do not paddle in the right direction you may not take the route you wanted.  An overnight in Jinja is required for this excursion.
