We Travel to Uganda twice each year. The trips typically fall in January and June, though the dates sometimes change. Typical trips last 10 – 14 days and cost $2,500 – $3,000. Some travelers elect to extend their trips with a safari at a Ugandan National Park.

Traveling with us to Uganda offers an unique opportunity to build relationships and to see how education impacts local poverty. You will also experience the incredible beauty of Uganda. If you are interested, please Contact Us.
