My East African travel bucket list

We were just talking with my husband on Saturday, we definitely need to take more time for exploring East Africa before, one day, we leave this place. Both of us have our own “TOP 3” places we would like to visit, but I gave it a second thought, and actually there are much more than only 3 things I wish I could do in a region and the neighborhood.

Here’s my African travel bucket list:

  1. Trek in Rwenzori Mountains
  2. Climb Kilimanjaro
    I was close to doing it back in 2014, but my German bank failed to transfer the money for the trek and even though I was on the foothill of the mountain already, I couldn’t do the trek because the money was “frozen” somewhere in a cyberspace…
  3. Trek to Sipi Falls and do zip lining
  4. Raft on the White Nile
  5. Visit Rwanda
  6. Track Mountain Gorillas
  7. Visit Congo (and ideally trek Mount Nyiragongo to see the lava)
  8. Travel to Zanzibar
    Again, similarly to Mount Kilimanjaro, I was already in Tanzania and ready to embark on the ship from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar, but…I was kidnapped by a taxi driver, threatened with a knife and robbed. So I had to cancel my stay in Zanzibar.
  9. Travel to Seychelles
  10. Stay at Diani Beach in Kenya (done)
  11. Trek Mount Longonot in Kenya (done)
  12. Game drive in Murchison Falls National Park
    I don’t know how can it be I’ve been in Uganda for over 2 years now and I never went there!
  13. Visit Lalibela (done)
  14. Feed a giraffe (done)
