Since living in Gulu, I have been to Fort Patiko several times. It is a one-hour drive north of Gulu. The guides have good historic information and communicate well. Pack a lunch and bring water as there is nothing to buy there. More care needs to be taken year-round to level the road leading into the Fort. There is also a high hill behind this historic location that gives you a great view of the entire area. Be prepared though to climb uphill for about 25+ minutes.
