Practical Karate African Adventure 2016!

In August 2016 we will be running an exclusive 7 day practical karate training camp in Uganda, Africa! Along with the training and comradery, we will also be taking a trip to the top of the breath-taking Murchison Falls, a boat trip on the Nile, and game drives in order to see hippos, crocodiles, elephants, giraffes, antelopes and possibly even lions and leopards in their natural environment!

Just 14 places are available so you need to act quickly if you wish to be part of this amazing opportunity!

The itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 (Aug. 5) - Arrive and stay in Entebbe.

Day 2 (Aug. 6) - Travel to Masindi. The morning and evening will give the group the opportunity to relax, and there will be plenty of time for van-mates to converse on the drive up to Masindi (roughly 5 hours from Entebbe).

Day 3 (Aug. 7) - Full day of practical karate training

Day 4 (Aug. 8) - Full day of practical karate training

Day 5 (Aug. 9) - One-half day of training (morning), Travel to Murchison Falls (roughly 2 hours from Masindi), Visit the top of the falls.

Day 6 (Aug. 10) - Morning game drive, Afternoon Nile boat trip, Evening game drive

Day 7 (Aug. 11) - Morning game drive, Travel to Entebbe to depart. Plane departure times need to be late in the day (post 8pm). It should take around 7-8 hours from Murchison to Entebbe, but travel can sometimes be an adventure in a developing country, so you want to budget in plenty of extra time.

While we are in Masindi (Days 2-4), we will be staying at either the Hotel Victory (http://www.hotelvictorybijja.com/) or the Kabalega Resort (http://www.kabalegaresort.com/)

Our main base in Murchison (Days 5 and 6) will be the Red Chilli Hideaway You can find out more via this link: http://redchillihideaway.com/hideaways/red-chilli-rest-camp-murchison/
