The Shiyaya Travel Journal

Uganda is completely abuzz with excitement over the Pope's visit from November 27 - 29 2015 and understandably so since this is the first visit that Pope Francis will be making to Africa as a continent.

With the thousands of expected visitors coming for this event plus the already 3 million city residents, at Shiyaya Tours, we have all the resources to make your (group or individual) visit memorable and will cover accommodation and transport requirements to ensure you are there for all the Pope's public events.

During this monumental visit, it is expected that Pope Francis will visit the Namugongo Minor Basilica (also known as the Namugongo Martyrs Shrines), a cultural site built in honour of the Uganda Martyrs who died for their faith, in 1886. Pope Francis will be the third Pope to visit the Shrines, after Pope John Paul II in 1993 and Pope Paul VI in 1969. As Namugongo is located 15 Kms from the capital city of Kampala, we shall  greater attractions for our tourists. Next to the minor Basilica is a small lake that many pilgrims have drawn water from and testified to its miraculous powers just like the hot springs in Kitagata in Bushenyi District close to Queen Elizabeth National Park where you find the unique tree climbing lions.

Your stay in Uganda, will be made even more enjoyable if you visit one of the many national parks and commune with creation as God intended. Come see the beautiful waterfalls in Murchison Falls National Park or the might River Nile as it sets out of Lake Victoria. Be calmed by the communities of the gentle gorillas in the Bwindi National Park or thrilled by the elephants in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Explore the magnificent, untamed wilderness of the Kidepo National Park and then go whitewater rafting at the Nalagala Rapids. Visit man's close relatives - the chimpanzees and see the most beautiful birds and butterflies in Kibale National Park.

Uganda is a country with a vast array of attractions and travelling around the country is now relatively easy. From the moment you arrive, we shall cater to your needs for complete satisfaction and an excellent experience. We at Shiyaya Tours and Travel are committed to ensuring your visit to Uganda as grand as the Pope's visit is to the country..

Introducing #UgandanSunset

Shiyaya Uganda

 A random Ugandan Sunset - you can NEVER go wrong with our sunsets here, wherever you are!

A random Ugandan Sunset - you can NEVER go wrong with our sunsets here, wherever you are!

If ever there were any doubt as to whether Uganda has the world's best sunsets, the coming days, weeks and months are going to put them soundly to rest.

Beginning this evening, totally on a whim, Ugandans are going to be taking and sharing photographs and tweeting them under #UgandanSunset.

The rules so far are simple: 1. Take the photograph 2. Upload it 3. Append #UgandaSunset 4. State the location where the photograph was taken.


We will be posting using @ShiyayaTours.

Maybe, after a while, we will publish photobooks or a website with all these sunset photographs for your viewing pleasure.

#UgandanSunset, everybody - share yours!
