Theo Vos and the team at Kara Tunga have done an incredible job launching a cultural tourism business in the NE corner of Uganda. We are delighted to be a part of this with Theo. The small Kara Tunga guest house is now a full facility lodge with 7 new Safari tents each with it's own complete bathroom that can accommodate up to 14 guests. We have also expanded our dining and guest facilities with an expanded menu, full bar and world class coffee. We recognize the high standards Tour Operators have and the importance of providing their clients with a world class experience and we are keen to be the local ground handler for all who want to add Karamoja and Kidepo Valley National Park to their programs.
Karamoja is a region of cultural authenticity and adventure in its purest form. The perfect mix for a once in a lifetime adventure full of surprises and rich encounters with nature, wildlife and incredible local people. We aim at preserving this ancestral cultural heritage through community tourism, indigenous art and value added interent and technology services. Building a new business takes time and as it grows, we hope to expand the program offerings across all of Karamoja. Our roots are in cycling and one day we hope to have a series of cycling related programs and events that will bring the cycling community to this incredible region
The Karamojong are nomadic agro-pastoralists, known for their love of cattle and their resistance to the trappings of modern civilisation. They consist of numerous tribes and clans that due to their strong believes have been able to preserve their ancestral cultural heritage.
The three most remote Game Reserves in the east and Kidepo Valley National Park in the extreme northeast of Uganda offer visitors some of the most stunning sceneries of any protected area in Uganda and harbour a number of animals found nowhere else in Uganda.
Karamoja's rolling grasslands are a reminder of a typical African savannah. Across an expanse of two hundred thousand acres, the region boasts a wealth of natural resources as mountain ranges, wetlands, sharp rocks and bushes.Type your paragraph here.
