The quiz questions focused on wildlife animals which are also Buganda clan totems, Uganda National Park and the tourism sector and conservation. Lumu was the first runner-up in the quiz after Ms Olivia Nabunya who won a trip with her partner to Queen Elizabeth National Park recently.

Prior to his trip, Alex Lumu had the honor of dining and interacting with the Ministry of Tourism officers, Buganda kingdom ministers and fellow respondents at the Capital Palace Gardens and Restaurant popularly known as the Carnival where they were hosted to a dinner by UWA management.

In Lake Mburo National Park, Lumu enjoyed the game drive sighting herds of diverse animals, bird species and the beautiful scenery. He also explored the expansive Lake Mburo on a boat ride during which he sighted unique birds like the African Fin foot and king fishers.
