    Agarthaโ€™s Taste of Uganda Tour: Situated in a small village on the fringes of the Queen Elizabeth National park, (approximately 45 minutesโ€™ drive from the camp) Agartha is a strong member of the local community group and tirelessly works to improve not only her familyโ€™s well-being but also her neighboursโ€™.

    Agartha takes great pride in sharing with you how the women of her tribe, the Bakiga, prepare their favourite food. Not only do you hear how the ingredients are grown and harvested but you can witness how to shift, grind, cook, and most importantly, keep the much-loved food warm for their husbands.

    During the tour Agartha weaves in stories of what itโ€™s like to be a Bakiga wife whilst encouraging you to taste what you may have helped prepare together. She then sends you off on your journey with a packed traditional snack and a taste of the local brew if you wish too!
