The first winners in Nile Breweries’ domestic tourism campaign dubbed “My Uganda, My Nile” were treated to a memorable weekend of fun and exploration as they toured Uganda’s biggest national park, Murchison falls National Park.

The two winners who included Next Media Digital Executive Richard Ndagije and Marvin Ayebare, a student at Makerere University, enjoyed two nights at Chobe Safari Lodge, a game drive around Murchison Falls National Park and a soothing boat ride on Victoria Nile where they got a chance to view the foot of Murchison falls and a variety of water creatures.

For a more memorable experience, each of the winners were allowed to invite three of their friends with whom they travelled and experienced Uganda’s beauty.

The team set off for the excursion on Friday morning, embarking for a 7-hour drive to Chobe Safari lodge in Nwoya District where they would be spending the weekend.

Along their way, they made several stops at a number of locations like River Kafu for road side muchomo; Karuma bridge where they viewed the frothy waters of the Nile and some animals including baboons, warthogs, giraffes, and some birds before reaching Chobe.

At Chobe, a late lunch was served, and they checked into their rooms to freshen up for the evening. In the evening, the group enjoyed a camp fire where they joined other visitors as they enjoyed Nile Special beer at the bank of River Nile till late.

Day 2 of the trip kicked off with a heavy breakfast as they prepared to take a game drive around the iconic Murchison Falls National Park which covers 3,893 square kilometers of land.

They were able to see and learn about different animal species like the Jackson’S hartebeest which is the favorite prey for lions, Uganda kobs, waterbucks, elephants, giraffes, hippos, and many bird species.

After the game drive and lunch which was served at Paraa Game Lodge, the winners were taken on a boat ride to view Murchison Falls.

It was an exciting ride as the winners spotted a crocodile which was resting at the river bank, classes of hippos, many species of water birds and the scenic Murchison Falls before heading back to Chobe later in the evening.

Day three, being the final day of the trip, the group spent their time lounging at Chobe Safari lodge.

“Since domestic tourism was allowed, I’ve been trying hard to find a way of traveling my country and #MyUgandaMyNile campaign came as a blessing to me. Throughout the trip, I learnt a lot about the wild, had fun on the game rides, the boat cruise to the waterfall, the food was so delicious, basically everyone and everything on the trip made it interesting and I want to thank Nile Special for this opportunity,” Marvin Ayebare, one of the winners said on departure day.

The “My Uganda, My Nile” campaign is still continuing and the next batch of winners will be travelling to Kapchorwa, Eastern Uganda to visit Sipi Falls National Park next weekend.

To stand a chance to be one of the next winners, take a picture with your Nile Special beer and share it on social media using the hashtag #MyUgandaMyNile.

Two posts with the most engagement will be selected and the winners will enjoy a trip with three of their friends.
