The Roast and Rhyme wild edition lived up to its billing, giving revelers a much-needed escape from the city’s hustle and bustle over the weekend.
Set in Murchison Falls National Park, revelers were brought closer to nature as they indulged in a series of fun activities including game drives, nature walk and a musical showcase.
The fun kicked off on Friday as the attendees embarked on a road trip headed to Murchison Falls national park in North-western Uganda. After many hours on the road, revelers unwound for the evening with a bonfire experience where they also enjoyed a laidback spoken word performance.
Day two of the activities featured a four-hour game drive through the park, which saw attendees take in the beautiful savannah grasslands while marveling at the different species of wildlife that Uganda is famous for.
That evening saw the Wild Roast and Rhyme take place with the usual barbecue experience for the lovers of meat as the attendees were serenaded by a live band performing classics from great names like Madoxx Ssematimba and Les Wayinka of the Sina Makosa fame. The evening also featured performances from Azawi and Winnie Nwagi who had revelers up and dancing as they performed some of the crowd favorites like Lo Fit and Matala among others.
The last day of The Wild Roast and Rhyme started with a nature walk through the park, with attendees taking in the breath-taking scenery and the wild animals in their natural habitat led by local guides.
The Wild Roast and Rhyme, supported by Bell Lager, was aimed at promoting domestic tourism and breathing life back into the tourism and hospitality sector, which have been grappling with the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
