    (Read original review on Facebook) We were very lucky that Kara-Tunga was brought to our attention right before we took off for a visit to Kidepo NP, otherwise we would probably have missed out on such an awe-inspiring experience in the North-Eastern and Eastern parts of Uganda.

    Certainly feel that team Kara-Tunga showed us some of the most delicate, hidden treasures in Uganda. All that in a creative, pure, respectful, fun and authentic way.

    Altogether, our Kara-Tunga Karamajong experience is probably one of the most memorable experiences during our 3-year stay in Uganda. Fame worth spreading!

  2. Kees Rotteveel (The Netherlands)

    Together with a friend I visited the Ik tribe in June 2017, and it turned out to be the most remote and culturally interesting region in Uganda I ever visited! Don’t expect hotels and well catered camp sites. With the help of Kara-Tunga we stayed in people homes or camped in their gardens, with magnificent views across Turkana! I can highly recommend this hidden gem to everybody who likes a bit of adventure.
