There’s a special offer trek to Mount Muhavura. It’s going to be four days of fun from October 9 to October 12.
I would like to be there. I would want to be one of those people in the cut-out trucks which stop at will so I could take pictures or just look at Timon and Pumbaa as they look for bugs. And the lions and the antelopes. You get the drift.
There are going to be a series of stops along the way: “Have lunch in Mbarara at Agip Motel. Proceed through Kigezi Region up to the small mountain town of Kisoro, just below the Muhavura Volcanic Mountain. Relax for dinner and overnight at Kisoro Tourist Hotel (Full Board).” And this is just on day one.
The lucky sods that’ll be going will go and see Lake Bunyonyi, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Reliable reports indicate that if you ask her while on the lakeside of this magnificent piece of God-art, there is no way she’s gonna say no. And these lucky tourists are going there. Damn! I wish I were loaded.
The reason I cannot go is because:
- I cannot afford to take four days off work. Yeah, The Man is a slave driver like that.
- I’d rather go to Ibulanku My doctor has warned me not to be so close big water masses who am I kidding, I don’t have this:
Tariff per person: 350,000 UShs
The tarrif includes a lot of goodies, which should entice a number of people, like:
Full Board accommodation
Ground transport by minibus (coaster)
English- speaking Driver/ Guide
Muhavura trekking fees
Boat ride on Lake Bunyonyi
I know there is going to be very many foreign tourists going for it. Whoever sent this ad must have sent it around the world first because that’s where most responses are going to come from.
Reminds me of a story I heard a while ago; a friend went on holiday to Zanzibar and found herself on this big ol’ boat as the only Black person. She didn’t enjoy her boat ride, poor girl and the first-time snorkeling was tainted with memories of smiling German ladies asking good naturedly, “Are you ze tour guide?”
PS: If you want to go, drop a line and I’ll get you the contact.
