Kampala: Lake Victoria Island Cycling Tour

1. Kampala: Lake Victoria Island Cycling Tour

You will begin by gathering at the Ggaba Beach House Gardens at 8:00AM. From there a 30-minute boat ride will take you across Lake Victoria from where you will start riding. The ride will take about 2-3 hours depending on your skill and fitness level, and is approximately 20 kilometers long. Your guide knows the area very well, and can adjust the route according to your skill and fitness level. The area provides some of Uganda’s best mountain bike trails which will lead you through lovely villages and beautiful nature. There are some nice climbs, and the track will contain a mix of wide gravel roads and single trails. During the trip you will stop at a typical Ugandan trading center for some local snacks, where you will be able to buy water and other things if required. Towards the end of your trip you will settle down for drinks at one of Lake Victoria's beautiful white beaches. As you begin your return trip back you will have to pedal the final 2-kilometer-stretch, following which you will find your boat waiting to take you back to the tour starting point.
