Expeditioners will travel to Mbale and work in villages near the Kenyan border, in some of the most rural and rugged mountains of Uganda. The scenery is breathtaking and some of the conditions can be primitive.
Due to COVID-19, the Thanksgiving and Christmas break expeditions are still tentative. Should we proceed, some expeditions may not be offered. Registration is now scheduled to open July 1st, and we will keep updating this page with the most recent information.
There must be a minimum of 20-25 participants in order for an expedition to proceed. Please refrain from purchasing airfare until the expedition has been confirmed.
