TAKING STRESS OUT

It gets pretty frustrating to go to work day in and day out, all day, all week, knowing there is no rest from the stress of a hectic schedule and yet you can’t quit your job. Here is a few things to do that may not take more than a day off your schedule.

WALK

There is nothing as relaxing as a night time walk in the cool breeze. You don’t even have to plan your walk out as this may add to your stress. Just walk and don’t stop until you view the world a little differently.

TRAVEL

If you can get some time off, like 3 days or so; travel somewhere you have always dreamed of going. It could be Hawaii, California, Jinja, Ssese Islands, whatever takes your fancy. Just plan out a trip or get a tour company to plan you a restful trip then go see something new, or do something old from a different place.

BE LAZY

If you are too Tired to even think, take a lazy day. Stay indoors and watch Tv in your pajamas and eat things out of the box and drink canned soda and just don’t leave bed or your couch. You can set your phone to silent or even switch it off so you don’t have to deal with people on this day.

HAVE FUN

Plan something crazy you wouldn’t normally do. Go bungee jumping or rafting, go to Disneyland and take a ride on the Ferris Wheel, whatever stops you from thinking for long. If you don’t fancy being alone take along company and enjoy every minute of that day so you are rejuvenated after.

Go ahead, take some time off before you get burnt out. If you’re in need of travel, book with us and we shall take you there. Contact us here.

A MURCHISON EASTER

For the Easter weekend this year, Sabili Tours is doing a recap of the Murchison Falls trip from last year. The park is dissected by Victoria Nile which plunges 45m over the rift valley wall creating the famous Murchison Falls.

This is a lovely park to see some of the big game like giraffes, elephants, buffaloes and hippos. Lions too can be seen when they aren’t taking their long routine naps. A game drive will let you see as many as possible.

It has a wide variety of bird species so for the bird watchers, it is a worthwhile trip.

This is an opportunity to take a boat ride as well and see the hippos and crocodiles upclose.

 

The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which plunges 45m over the remnant rift valley wall, creating the dramatic Murchison Falls, the centerpiece of the park and the final event in an 80km stretch of rapids. – See more at: http://www.ugandawildlife.org/explore-our-parks/parks-by-name-a-z/murchison-falls-national-park#sthash.SBu1lTCs.dpuf

THINGS TO DO IN JINJA

It is a town located a 3 hour drive from Kampala city. It has as many attractions as you could possibly want and even more. Take some time and visit this scenic town for a wonderful weekend.

Bujagali Falls

This is a lovely place to hear tales about the gods and watch men float on the rapids with nothing but a jerrycan to bring them back to safety. It is daring, exciting and  will keep you entertained.

White water rafting

They say you should go rafting atleast once, maybe more if you dare. It takes handling your demons and embracing them to calm your fear and enjoy the exhilaration of fighting to stay afloat in your raft. It’s scary yet might be exactly what you need.

Bungee Jumping

This is done by jumping off a 44m cliff while harnessed from the top. You can opt to let your feet be dipped in the water or be yanked up before. To add a bit of illicit thrill, try a jump in the night. You will enjoy the combination of fresh cool air and the adrenaline as you jump. The best part is you can jump with a friend if you are scared.

Swimming

The former Hotel Triangle, currently called Brisk is one of a few spots you can go to find a large pool to swin in. For a low price, you can enjoy the privacy of the water and work those kinks out for the day.

Visit the Swaminarayan Hindu temple

The main Hindu temple is situated on the way to the show ground from Jinja town. It is lovely to look at and you can take a tour so as to see anything you are curious about.

Boat ride

It would be a plus to enjoy a boat ride while in Jinja Town. You can get one at the Source of the Nile or Bujagali Falls. This is something you can enjoy with friends or family.

We at Sabili Tours would be happy to plan a trip for you to Jinja. Contact us here.

ROMANCE FOR A SEASON

romance shouldn’t be just one day

SabiliTours

It’s that time of the month again, you know, where your wallets get emptier than a church trashcan. The moth that contributes the most to the single pool all year round. The month of love and heartbreak.

Here at Sabili Tours we celebrate romance and relationships with beautiful, unforgettable tailor made honeymoons that will kick-start your forever in a big way.

Much as humans celebrate romance the most with a day ear marked for it and every other day an excuse to indulge, we are not biologically wired to be monogamous. Wolves are, but not us. Here are some animals that give humans a run for their money.

Monogamy

Would you believe it if I told you wolves are monogamous? Once it mates that’s it. Soul-mate,partner, all rolled in one.

The animal mating ritual that most closely resembles human dating is not wolves or primates or even mammals. It’s…

NGAMBA ISLAND

An island worth a visit

SabiliTours

Ngamba Island is located 23 km offshore from Entebbe. It is a home to orphaned or juvenile Chimpanzees and is a good tourist destination spot.

Its focus is as a sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees that have been rescued by the Uganda Wildlife Authority from poachers and traders. These orphaned chimpanzees have no chance of survival if they were released back into the wild, so the Chimpanzee Sanctuary was established in October 1998 as a non-profit organisation to care for and protect these chimpanzees in a natural environment.

It’s a unique opportunity for close viewing of chimpanzees in their natural environment due to the pre-arranged  feeding times . Here at Sabili Tours, we organize the boat ride such that you get there in time for the feeding.

You stand nearby and the feeding is done so as to  bring the chimpanzees to within meters of the raised walkway designed for easy viewing…

Monogamy

Would you believe it if I told you wolves are monogamous? Once it mates that’s it. Soul-mate,partner, all rolled in one.

Mating.

The animal mating ritual that most closely resembles human dating is not wolves or primates or even mammals. It’s the albatross. They are seabirds and take up to 10 years in some species to reach sexual maturity .You would expect them to rush into a relationship but instead they  sit back and learn from their elders, observing the species’ elaborate mating rituals that include dancing, preening, staring, pointing, and vocalizations. After years of trial and error, the birds perfect these mating rituals. They will then start dancing with many partners, but year after year, they will trim down their dance card until they have selected the one partner they want to be with for the rest of their lives. Nothing like this to inspire your dancing skills, eh?

Reversal of roles.

Did you know that male seahorses are the ones who carry the litter? But before it gets that far the two sea horses go through an intimate courtship first. They hold tails, swim snout to snout and change colors to show one another that they are ready for romance. This process can last for days before the pair engages in a courtship dance that lasts up to eight hours.

Once the male is pregnant, the female sticks around until he gives birth. She visits him every morning, holding his tail, changing colors and flirting with him to ensure that he will continue to nurture the eggs until they hatch. That is one good way of reassuring you that you are loved.

Dependency

It feels good to be needed or wanted. Even animals depend on each other to survive. Snails are hermaphrodites but they require another partner to lay eggs. Their courtship process largely comes down to the animals circling one another and firing off “love darts” at each other, one third of which miss the target. The mucus-covered darts stimulate the animal’s female reproductive organs so they can hold more sperm. Once the darts are in place, the partners trade sperm cells for as long as six hours.

Take some time and go watch other animals express love and romance with your partner.

Happy valentines day        🙂
