Kara-Tunga hosted a renown Belgium journalist to reveal Uganda’s untouched Karamoja region. He quoted Karamoja as “Off the Beaten Path” and his experience “Out of Africa”. Read his travel report in Belgiums biggest newspaper ‘Het Laatste Nieuws’ featuring the Karamoja region, Kidepo Valley National Park and Authentic cultural tours of Kara-Tunga.
The journalist titled his article “In the heart of Africa”. Find some quotes below and links to the online articles below:
Jonathan Vandevoorde: “If there is one place where I completely get the Out of Africa feeling, it is Kidepo Valley National Park, the largest in Uganda and one of the top three wildlife parks in Africa. It’s located in the northernmost corner of the country. To get there, I crossed one of the most authentic regions of Africa and ate, laughed and slept with the warriors of Karamoja.”
“Uganda is a poor but safe country to travel. English is the official language but more than 50 recognized languages are spoken in the country. Various travel agencies offer programs in the south and south-west of the country, including mountain gorillas. The unspoiled north-east, on the other hand, is ‘off the beaten track’.”
