Karamoja the NE corner of Uganda is one of the most beautiful places on earth. For many years, it has been isolated from the rest of Ugandan society due to the cattle wars and with peace now having come to the region, the world will now discover this beautiful area. One the past 5 years Bicycles for Humanity has delivered over 4,000 bicycles to the region.
Kara Tunga is the brainchild of Theo Vos, and Karamoja’s first cultural tour company. We encourage you to come to karamoja and take one of the great kara-tunga tours or have Theo arrange a special tour for you. For more information, you can contact [email protected]
As cyclists we immediately saw the enormous potential of Karamoja holding world class mountain bike tours, races and events. With Paul having grown up in Karamoja, he is keenly interested in leading Safari’s in the region plus helping to create the first ever Tour of Karamoja cycling events. Imagine seeing the best of Africa with Paul Sherwen as your guide, if this appeals to you, than drop us an email, [email protected]
Our goal is to continue to build our team to help get more bikes to this area, plus take the first steps towards creating world class cycling events in the area. David Kinjah and the team at Safari Simbaz organize the Mt Kenyan Epik and we hope to learn from his expertise as we take the first steps in Karamoja. If you are interested in joining us or helping to grow this one of a kind event, please email us, we would love to have you join us on this journey. Please visit www.kara-tunga.com
