Creating a thriving tourist base in the Ugandan village of Kabubbu is part of the Quicken Trust’s plan to help the needy community there to stand on its own feet. A trip to Kabubbu provides a fascinating and educational introduction to rural Africa – and helps boost the local economy. (Educational Tourism)
Quicken knows that not everyone is able to come to Kabubbu as a working volunteer. Since 2000 many supporters have visited as tourists on trips arranged by the charity. Quicken and the Kabubbu Resort Centre team can also organise transport to other attractions in Uganda such as the Source of the Nile at Jinja and the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Or you could track gorillas on the Rwandan border. (Educational Tourism)
More than 1,200 people have visited Kabubbu with the Quicken Trust so far. Quicken is a Christian charity and many who come are from a faith background. But many are not. All are equally welcome.
If you would like to visit Kabubbu as a visitor phone 01323 832361 and ask for Caroline or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Accommodation and food is provided at the Kabubbu Resort Centre. You can hire a motorbike taxi – boda boda – for a tour around the village. It’s a fun way to get around. Watch: A ride from the primary school to village centre.
Trips for visitors are organised in the same way as those for volunteers. The cost for a volunteer is cheaper – the discount is in return for the work they do. Visitors can also participate in many of the activities arranged for volunteers. See volunteer for more details.
