Explore The Lutembe Bay Wetland

When Lutembe Bay wetland is mentioned, what comes in the minds of any regular tourist to Uganda is bird watching because this site is a real Paradise when it comes to bird species.

Extending for only 3.1 square miles (8 square kilometers/800 hectares), this Important Bird Area and Ramsar wetland of International Importance (since 2006) is found on the Northern shores of Lake Victoria, the Africa’s largest Lake by area and World’s largest Tropical Lake.

If you ever visit Uganda and wish to participate in birding, the Lutembe Bay wetland (one of the 33 Important Birding Areas in Uganda) should not miss on your Itinerary because as rare as it seems, it is popular for offering shelter to over 200 species of birds including 26 migrants, making it the main migration stop for many Palearctic migrants from North Africa, Russia, Scandinavia as well as the main land of Europe and these birds include more than 1.5 million (52%) white-winged terns encountered during birding tours in Uganda, gull-billed terns, black-headed gulls, Holub’s golden weaver as well as several Grey-headed Gulls. Majority of the Migratory species of birds normally begin arriving within the Lutembe Bay wetland in the rainy season especially September to November and leave in the middle of February of early March.

This wetland is part of the extensive Murchison bay that is known for abundant counts of flora and fauna species but this area offers materials for building as well as craft products to the local community members, fresh drinking water, fish, energy products and medicine among others. It is also a wonderful breeding ground for several fish species and several species can be found in the wetland. For instance, the endangered Cichlid fish, Clarius fish and Lung Fish are found within this wetland area.

This site is also a haven to a wide range of butterfly species (over 100 species have been recorded) including three extraordinary species that are not found in any other Important Bird Area of Uganda and they include Cacyreus virilis, Acraea Pharsalus and Belenois solilucis thus making it an ideal butterfly watching destination in Uganda.

Lutembe Bay wetland is also a haven to the rare Sitatunga antelopes, Otters (especially the African-Clawless otter and African spot-necked otters), Rodents and Shrews. Therefore, bird watching, nature walks and butterfly watching are some of the important tourist activities that can be enjoyed within this endowed tourist destination. This site is close to Kampala City and Entebbe International Airport hence making it easier accessible by tourists on Uganda tours.

Besides being a home to the wildlife, birds and butterflies, Lutembe Bay wetland naturally plays a role of filtering water that goes through it. Normally, it filters things like sediments, silt and excess nutrients in the running water as well as the dirty wastewater that comes from the nearby factories in addition to the sewage from all over Kampala.

How to organize a perfect safari to Serengeti National Park

safari-serengetiThis amazing destination is encompassed with game rich sanctuaries that make for an unparallel safari experience. In other words don’t rush your safari, take it step by step or you will miss out on out.

Serengeti National park is the kingdom of predators, while the colossal groups of the Migration thunder over the plain in various numbers. The park has a lot to offer that the worlds last continuing to be great migration. Be that as it may, this migration is so magnificent it is scarcely unexpected most guests to the Serengeti National Park try to time there itinerary to go with the migration.

It is a great idea to try to get all over the place when on Safari. While it ought to be said that it is not continually practical nor is a good idea to leave your vehicle on some events it motivated. Kayaking on Lake Manyara or nature walk around the Tarangire Wilderness Area are great ways to stretch the legs and see, odor and feel the African wilderness far from the boundaries of the 4×4.

This is the one time it is allowed to drive in the Serengeti National Park in the pre-down. At times, ascend to 1000 meters or more to see the enormity and breathtaking panorama of the Serengeti. From time to time the pilot ought to put more heat into the balloon with the intense whisper burners.

A critical thought for the majority of people is the expense. The Serengeti is not generally reasonable – with park charges alone multiplying in 2014 to US $60 per individual daily. There are some lodges that take care for budget safaris and in case you also travel in low season then lodge costs are lowered considerably.

How long should a safari to Serengeti be? The Serengeti alone is so big months could be spent exploring the park. A main guideline would be to spend 5 days in the main and southern Serengeti or the main and northern Serengeti depending on the season of year is the minimum time to acquire any genuine feel or pleasure for the area.

When the best time to visit Serengeti? The dry season is July to December and is the ideal time for a photographic tour. The short rains are in November and the long rains from March to mid June. Be that as it may, the weather does not always act naturally. A few years we have had more rain in January and February than the whole of the rainy season. It may be perfect to start the downpours are from November to June with a drier period from December to mid March. Keep in mind that low season is both much cheaper and receives fewer visitors.

What season to book a tour to this park depends on precisely what you need and to work carefully with your excursion operator will help you choose. I would aim to avoid late July to the end of September for the sole reason the parks and set number of lodges are just excessively hectic.

If you are an experienced voyager, there is no reason why you should not touch arrive in Arusha and organize your safari with a local travel company. I have worked as a tour operator in Arusha in northern Tanzania and planned itineraries for tourists who have really had up to three travel agents in a chain all including commission onto the rate of the safari.

A tour for one or two people is expensive. One method to reduce this expense is to join with a group. Joining a group tour will be less expensive; this being the only advantage if cost is an issue. To impart a safari vehicle to regularly requiring new people might case problem once the safari starts.

The more concerns you ask the more viable will be your safari. The quality of the answers you get to your worries will also show how interested your tour operator in Tanzania is on the success of your safari verses simply making a profit.

One final comment will be to unwind whilst on safari- remove you view as it simply won’t be required. There is not the very same reality on an Africa safari.

Egypt discusses plans to breathe life in fragile tourism industry

In the conference intended to talk about the different ways to restore the countries collapsing tourism sector, an Egyptian official remarked that an immediate plan should be implemented to enhance the fragile tourism sector in the North African countries.

The authority made the comments at the main Academic Tourist Conference which was held in Hurghada.

“After this plan arrangement, we ought to also actualize both short and long term plans to develop tourism,” said Ahmed Abdullah, governor of Egypt’s Red Sea Governorate.

The governor said that, the government, workers in the tourism industry, academics and specialists, ought to cooperate to find solutions to once again make Egypt a world well known vacationer destination.

The Russian air plane crash over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula in October a year ago dealt a blow to Egypt’s now battered tourism industry.

It finally led some nations, including Britain and Russia, to suspend their flights to Egypt’s renowned Red Sea resort, Sharm el-Sheik and to evacuate their nationals there, over security concerns.

Egypt has been taking several measures recently to revive tourism.

Tourism sector, one of the main sources of the nation’s national income and foreign currency reserves, endured a setback since the 2011 uprising that toppled previous long-time leader, Hosni Mubarak.

The Batwa Trail Experience in Uganda

For quite a long time till of late when the Batwa the pygmy community were displaced from the thick rain forests of Bwindi and Mgahinga in south western Uganda that are famously known for mountain gorilla trekking safaris. The forests where a self contained home to these pygmies, they got fundamentals of life right in the Forest, for example shelter, sustenance by hunting, medicine by use of traditional herbs.

The Batwa People (Pygmies)

The Batwa People (Pygmies)

Who are the Batwa Pygmies?

The Batwa are the group of the hunting people who lived all their lives hunting animals and gathering fruits and honey for nourishment. The Batwa come form the word ‘twa’ which implies dwarf and additionally refers to short forest people who lived in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks bordering Rwanda & Democratic Republic of Congo. By stature, the Batwas are noticeably short something like 4feet in tallness and carried on with a Stone Age life. They hunted small animals using poison bows and arrows. They also lived in small shelter made with leaves between big tree limbs for protection from predators. They use to move place to place within the forest in search for food, water and new homes, that is to say they where nomads in nature. They used hard wood and stones to light fire, cutting and digging.

How the Batwa life changed?

In the end Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla Forest were gazetted into National Parks in 1992 deliberately to secure the rare and endangered mountain gorillas yet this was not in the favour of the Batwa people who knew no other home however the Forest, they had to begin a whole new life from what they were using to for eras. Great news is much as they can no more leave in the forest, they have an opportunity to go back this time an income generating visit to the forest throughout the Batwa trail when they get to demonstrate to tourists how they once lived.

What happens during the Batwa Trail?

This activity was a thought of Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA), the seniors dressed backcloth heads you to the forest to the trails they once knew and reveal to you how they lived in the woods, you get to see their small shelters, show how they hunted and lit fire, how they used herbs for medicine, and this adventure ends at the holy Ngarama Cave which was a palace for their King.

This is the thing that you will encounter.

Spooky singing echoes in the Ngarama Cave enjoy traditional exhibitions, a forest stroll with amazing perspectives of the national park, watch how fire is lit without a matchbox or lighter and so much more.

Why your Visit is Important

By tourists taking this activity, you significantly help the welfare of the Batwa people. In the first they feel at euphoria when they come back to the forest their former home this gives them affectionate memories and satisfaction. Also the fee you pay goes back to the community helping to enhance the standard of living by building and maintaining schools, hospital and clinics, water and sanitation projects.

Thirdly all pygmies who partake in the Batwa trail activity whether by guiding or making exhibitions are paid, this method they earn a living and to cater to families. It’s extremely significant that when you arrange a cheap Uganda safari try to include the Batwa trail, your visits means a lot to this community or forest exiles.
