"The beauty of Uganda tells its own tale. Traveling is like falling in love. It’s beautiful open country to every end of Uganda once you leave Kampala. It is as if Uganda is straight out of the bandbox," Joselyn Kayima, a princess from Buganda, said.
Lots of activity took place on the first day. The tour team had their fling on the Uganda wildlife Authority tour bus.
Before the first stopover in Luwero, enroute to Pakwach, there was a plethora of loud activity; with Comedian, Salvador cracking up the team with his impulsive banter.
