Welcome to Clark Expeditions
This is our journey. Let's help you on yours...
For the last few years I have been exploring Uganda, mostly Eastern Uganda on my bike. I've been on a personal journey of discovering an incredible new sport of mountain biking and I have been loving every second of it. I've been wanting to share the incredible playground I've found with everyone else and I have struggled to find the right mechanism to do it. Hence, Clark Expeditions.
I'm getting a little ahead of myself - I have been incredibly fortunate to have some amazing opportunities over the last few years and right now I am the co-owner and Managing Director of Nalubale Rafting in Jinja, and Sipi River Lodge in Sipi Falls, Mt Elgon. Both these businesses rock! I love them both and all that we have achieved. My vision for providing mountain bike holidays and expeditions doesn't fit into the business model of either company.
Over the last few years I have put together some incredible trips for some incredible people. In 2013 we had the legendary rider Hans Rey and his wife come ride with us, do a photo shoot and make a movie - they are both some of the nicest people I have ever met. In 2016 I had ex pro downhiller Kamil Tatarkovic and his Wife visit and ride Mount Elgon with us. I have now ridden Mt. Elgon 5 times, pioneering new routes and opening up the incredible mountain to the joys of mountain biking.
Since 2011 we have organised and hosted the Mt Elgon Mountain Bike Race, which now is a staple in the Ugandan race calendar and the most technically challenging of all the races, year on year getting incredible feedback from all the riders.
We have incredible mountain biking here and the trails are empty. Uganda as a destination is safe, friendly, incredibly beautiful, accessible and relatively cheap. We have a handful of unique products, and most of all we have the opportunity to share our stoke, to show others the fun we've had and the incredible places we've found.
So we want to open up this incredible destination. With 13 years in Uganda and connections throughout the tourism industry we are incredibly well placed to offer the most incredible adventures in this incredible place.
So that's the background, and that's why Clark Expeditions was born. As we launch we initially want to focus on our core product of MTB holidays in Uganda. As we mature we will look further and do more.
