Cycling in Uganda

Bikes are such a great way of travelling in Africa – not least because you get to travel the way most local people do, under your own steam (and sweat) – that it’s not surprising it’s an increasingly popular way of getting around. This post on ShaneCycles.com is admirably detailed for anyone contemplating a tour of the mountainous southwest corner of Uganda.

It seems you can do some of the parks by bike, as well – assuming you’re intrepid enough. Pete Gostelow recently cycled through Queen Elizaebeth National Park and Shane’s report includes confirmation that it’s allowed, and also somewhat dangerous.

About Richard Trillo

I'm the author of Rough Guides to Kenya, Madagascar and West Africa, and co-author of Rough Guides to First-Time Africa and The Gambia. I was formerly editor of the African chapters of the Rough Guide to World Music. The blogs for Kenya, West Africa and First-Time Africa are a way for me to post news for readers and for readers to keep in touch with me and with info from other travellers, posting updates, news and comments. Or that's the idea. To be honest the blogs barely get any attention from me these days. I am the Kenya Programme Manager at the safari tour operator Expert Africa and was previously a freelance writer, editor and PR consultant, and before that Director of Communications at the publisher Rough Guides.
