You’ll need a minimum of 1-2 year experience on your motorcycle and for each tour we have specified which experience you’ll need.
The Uganda North East corridor’ tour is a level 2/3 allroad tour, and is perfect for those who have some experience with off-road riding . The days can be long, depending on many factors (punctures, weather etc.), so you have to be comfortable in most situations in order not to suffer fatigue to quickly. The pace is relaxed, it is not a competition. We are travelling and touring, not racing and will take a break frequently. There will be time enough to take pictures & rest etc. On the longer tours we have resting days to enjoy all the local cultural highlights . We do want to emphasise that for our off-road tours that you need to be healthy and in a good physical condition. The riding, in combination with the weather can make it challenging en strenuous. (depending on riders experience level, weather, and/or a combination the itinerary can be changed) General This area of Uganda is also known as Uganda’s best kept secret.
The route makes its way through the East and North of Uganda and has quite some altimeters. For long time the people of this area lived in fear for the armed nomadic Karamojong warriors who were out for cattle-raids.
Also in 2011, the Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) managed to disarm these warriors. The disarmament made it possible for human right and development organization to enter the area. Now since this area is safe for travelling it is one of the most authentic parts of East-Africa. And the best and most exciting way to travel this area is off course per motorbike. Although the roads are very challenging for cars, the more fun it is for us to ride them on motorbikes. Climate Uganda. The climate in East-Uganda is semi-arid. Some years of droughts are common.
