From my visit to Mr John Ssempeebwa, the deputy chief executive of the Uganda Tourism Board, he shared the top 10 high returns investment opportunities in Uganda’s tourism today. On Tuesday, we discussed the first three namely;

1.The Uganda International Convention

2.Niche Accommodation

3.Fun in the Sun & Wild in the Water

Today, I bring you the fourth attractive investment opportunity in Uganda’s tourism.

4.Sky adventure

Tourism is about creativity of the investors, and the experiences they create for their customers.
And since every country has a sky, Uganda can also do so much with its sky in terms of sky sports and adventures.

Hot air balloon

According to John Ssempeebwa, there is only one hot air balloon in the whole of Uganda. Yet, every place in the country including game parks, lakes, rivers, mountains, valleys, etc, might require one to fly over them in a balloon. Ssempeebwa says this is an area that needed investors like yesterday and making money is only one extra balloon away.

Sky trams

What is missing here is the infrastructure, but, sky trams not only help in facilitating transport from one part to another, but also, they can be part of attractions to places with such infrastructure. An aerial tramway, sky tram, cable car, rope way or aerial tram is a type of aerial lift which uses one or two stationary ropes for support while a third moving rope provides propulsion.


Ssempeebwa says ParaSliding is one of the popular sky sports in the world which have not reached Uganda, unfortunately. He says anyone who grabs such an investment opportunity, will have him to thank for awakening them.

Sky treks

Sky Trek is a unique system of trails, suspension bridges and zip lines that allows visitors to observe the rain forest from a variety of different vantage points. Sky Treks provides spectacular air tours to tourists. Anyone ready to provide these experiences in Uganda?

Tomorrow, we shall bring you three more opportunities in Uganda’s tourism industry which investors can grab this year, according to tourism expert John Ssempeebwa, the deputy CEO of Uganda’s Tourism Board. For more information, follow John
