See the impact of Ker & Downey Philanthropy at Save Street Children Uganda, an orphanage dedicated to getting the children of Uganda off the street and into a loving home. Continue to one of Uganda’s oldest conservation areas, Murchison Falls, a beautiful area bisected by the Nile, making for good game viewing. Take guided nature walks in the park or enjoy a quiet afternoon in the landscaped gardens of Paraa. Daily game drives are available and a special cruise is waiting to take you to the foot of Murchison Falls for spectacular sights of the birds and hippos.

Continue on to the Ndali Lodge in the Kibale National Park. Two days of your journey have been set aside here for a visit to the local villages, the school and an exciting primate walk. But the highlight of your stay in Kibale will be a rare evening in the Toro Kingdom.

A portion of your stay is also dedicated to visiting the Bwindi Community Hospital, which provides health care in this region with unique treatments.
