Warrior Nomad trail

The tour takes you in 5 days / 5 stages from the Southern savannah lands in Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve to the most Northeastern corner of the country along the escarpment of East Africa’s Eastern Rift down into Uganda’s most applauded Kidepo Valley National Park.

History

The Tour of Karamoja started as a 2-day event, set south and north from Moroto town, looking up at the highest peak in Karamoja with a  breathtaking view of plains below. A very special combination of great riding, breathtaking scenery intertwined with authentic cultural experience that the Karamoja region offers. The first 5-stage, week-long event took place in 2020 and covered the entire length of the region. 

 

2021

The 2021 edition takes 5 days/stages on the saddle and one day of optional bike safari. The tour starts from Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve, over the foothills of three mountain ranges, through Karamoja’s undulating savannah plains and into Uganda’s most scenic national park: Kidepo Valley. The ride takes you over varied terrain from old colonial roads, cattle-paths and single trails through communities and gardens  with breathtaking scenery and a authentic cultural encounters.
