Uganda

  • Peter and Anne from Cambridgeshire travelled to UgandaRob, just a brief note to say a huge thank you for organising such a fantastic trip to Uganda for us. Everything was brilliant and the mountain gorilla trekking experience is one that will live with us both for the rest of our lives – amazing! Hassan was a fantastic guide and friend – and everyone seemed to know him wherever we went. His birding knowledge is sensational and we racked up 311 species during the trip but missed out on the Chocolate Kingfisher in the Royal Mile and the Shoebill in the Delta but did get some crackers…..Scenery everywhere was simply breath-taking – including the crater lakes; and of course Murchison Falls and the Nile. We saw an incredible array of primates including the chimps in Kibale and a L’Hoest’s monkey sitting on our bed in Buhoma; a lone gorilla crossing the road in front of us while we were birding in front of the lodge in Buhoma; plus a close encounter with a three metre long spitting cobra in Bigodi Swamp. Lodges and locations all so different that it is almost impossible to compare – however, the Masindi Hotel was interesting! Thanks again and look forward to our next African odyssey…..you guys have delivered yet again….!Peter and Anne from Cambridgeshire travelled to Uganda
