Uganda’s culture is defined by its colorful communities and over 50 distinct ethnic groups. Each region in the country provides opportunities for visitors to interact with the locals and learn about their unique customs and livelihoods.
Activities like the Batwa Experience near Mgahinga Gorilla National Park offer a glimpse into the living history of this tribe that was once called the forests of Uganda. The Batwa tribe is one of the oldest surviving communities in Africa and has preserved many of its traditions.
Ik resides in Mount Morungole near Kidepo Valley National Park and welcomes visitors who take part on a challenging one-day hike to their secluded home.
Due to years of isolation and strong beliefs, Ik has managed to preserve the customs of their ancestors dating back thousands of years and willingly share them with visitors keen to make the journey.
