About The Stories We Publish
Destination Uganda Traveler’s blogging goals are to find the new, to showcase fresh travel opportunities in Uganda, and to be an advocate for travelers. DU Traveler’s tag line is “Untamed Uganda, Where the Journey Begins.” Accordingly, each story captures a place’s essence in a way that inspires readers to follow in the writer’s footsteps—and equip them to do so with useful destination information.
Types of stories we publish
Destination Uganda Traveler stories are precisely about Uganda travel. Generally, we are interested in places in Uganda accessible to most travelers, not just the intrepid or wealthy. The types of destinations we cover vary widely, from mainstream to adventure travel.
DU Traveler features are usually narrow in scope; we do not cover politics or other countries. Subjects of particular interest to us are national and state parks, historical places, cities, little-known or undiscovered places, bus & train trips, cruises, and driving trips.
Service or guide information is generally given separately at the end of each blog in a section that includes how to get to the destination, things to see and do there, and where to obtain more information. The writer is expected to send along as much service information as possible with the article to help us prepare this section.
We also publish several regular service-oriented blog stories, emphasizing meaty, practical information like “How-to” blogs. Story subjects include photography, food, lodgings, ecotourism, adventurous learning experiences, and short getaways. Essays offering reflections on the travel experience get a massive readership.
