The hard work volunteers put in during the week undoubtedly warrants some fun and relaxation in the evenings and on the weekends. During the week, you can enjoy mingling with the locals and observing their ways of living. You can play soccer (football), cards, board games, or just chill out at a bar or go out dancing, getting to know fellow volunteers from around the world. Pub-quiz nights are a quite popular activity for volunteers.
Some key things to see and do in Uganda:
On the weekends, you can participate in day safaris or take a week off to go on a wildlife safari. You could check out the Source of the River Nile, where you could do some white water rafting, bungee jumping, or kayaking. Other recommended tourist attractions are the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre and several national parks and waterfalls. Remember, your in-country coordinator is always available to help you plan safe, educational and cost saving travels.
