Get ready for the trip of a lifetime!

On your trip to Uganda, you will be welcomed by the local staff who will be your hosts for the week. You will visit the homes and communities of sponsored friends and learn about their joys and challenges while experiencing the beauty of the Ugandan people.


This covers food, lodging and most in-country transportation.

Arrive in Entebbe late the next night or the following morning. Local Unbound staff will welcome you at the airport and take you to lodging nearby.
