The ‘Adungu’ loop trek! Sound like the one you would try? Here are some fun facts! The Adungu loop trek is another one of the exciting walks that Trekking Timmy gives you a chance to experience in fun-filled Kampala city! First, the trek gets its name because the route is shaped like a local instrument called the Adungu (or Ekidongo or Ennenga) that was originally invented and most commonly used by the Alur people of North-Western Uganda. You can call it a locally improvised harp. DISCLAIMER: You will not be seeing any adungus on the trip but you can see one at the Uganda Museum

A trek around Kampala, anyone? Did you know that you could do more than just riding around in a taxi cab, taking a stroll in a tour van, or taking a daring trip on the city’s famous fast-moving motorbikes commonly referred to as “boda boda”?

Kampala is a city that bears such places and as a matter of fact, a majority of key place names such as roads, hospitals

Kampala before Covid-19 was a city that came to life at night! Kampala is predominantly full of predominantly younger revellers of the Ugandan population and for this reason, the city was known to get loud from the evening hours into the night, and especially on the weekends.   The ‘busyness’ of the city was not only limited to bars and nightclubs, but also other places like restaurants, cinema halls, shopping centres and even places of worship like churches that would have overnight prayer gatherings. Interestingly, the other “unobvious” places that would have large gatherings of people would be the small local restaurants and food stands

Whoever said jogging is better than trekking had better check out our monthly #KampalaTrek with Trekking Timmy. If you missed the Adungu-Loop Trek last Saturday, 9th June, make it a point to clear your calendar on 7th July because trust me, you don’t want to miss the next one…unless you don’t like having a good time. It’s hard to say what the best part of the trek is. The trail itself has got some really interesting historical sites. For those interested in faith tourism, you will find the Aga Khan Mosque, Kampala Central Mosque (also known as Gadhafi Mosque), and Namirembe Cathedral on the trail:

The trek route to be explored in Kampala, this time round resembles a musical instrument locally known as the “Adungu/ Ekidongo/Ennenga/ arched harp”. Evident on the map, so is the experience on this trek that you will be walking with notions of style that will be reproducing rhythms for a particular dancing manner as we pave through the numbers, streets and the paved walkways thanks to the Kampala city authorities. These monthly walks we do for fun hold unfold sensual and contingent apprehension of the the various regions within Kampala. Kampala is famously known for its history that became notable to western foreigners  in the

Last weekend a group of bold trekkers joined me on a quest to conquer the 20km Dog Loop Trek, our #trekwithtim challenge for the month May. What a great, great time we had! We trekked in the rain, mingled with vendors selling crafts by the road, traded jokes with boda riders who found it funny that we were walking for fun, and best of all, finished the trek in good time. It took took us 3 hours to complete the 14km Uganda Colony Trek last month so we assumed the 20km challenge would take us at least 4 hours. We beat that time by 15
