Full Safari Itinerary
You will start off your journey/ safari travelling through the districts of Mpigi as your final destination will be at Kayabwe on of the places the equator crosses Uganda. The drive to Kayabwe should not take more than 2 hours as the distance from Kampala City to Kayabwe is not that far.
When you arrive there, you will be welcomed warmly by one of the tour guides who will at any time of the day elaborate how and why the equator is truly crossing through there.
THE ACTUAL EXPERIMENT ABOUT UGANDA EQUATOR WILL BE AS FOLLOWS
He will point out where the 0 degrees latitude crosses; point out the southern hemisphere and also the northern hemisphere. With the help of the magnetic fields and the water used, he will show you that in the Northern pole, the water will sink out through the hole in the clockwise angle. However, in the southern pole, the water will sink down the hole in a counter-clockwise as caused by the magnetic fields.
The experience is finished off with the water sinking at the 0 degrees latitude straight down, proving that that is the imaginary line that crosses the whole world. This is as simple as it sounds but the experience is in a way mind blowing as you see with proving how the water is sucked down in all different directions.
There are also a couple of craft shops with interesting items that can be bought as souvenirs. With the experience done you shall have your lunch and maybe continue relaxing a bit and then head back to Kampala hence call it a day.
