Good Migrations: On the Trail of the Wildebeest

KENYA | Friday, 20 Aug 2010 | Views [842]

If we’d pre-booked all our intended activities in Kenya it would have meant going in and out of Nairobi more times than we felt was strictly necessary.   So instead of flying from Uganda to Kenya we booked bus tickets with Akamba , and took a ... Read more >

Southwestern Uganda by Public Transport!

UGANDA | Saturday, 31 Jul 2010 | Views [968]

Our new found friends in Kampala seemed more impressed that we reached Mount Elgon National Park, and back to Kampala, using public transport than they were on hearing we’d reached the top of said hillock!   When we said the next 2 week leg of our ... Read more >


Climbing the Wild Mt. Elgon in Uganda

UGANDA | Monday, 19 Jul 2010 | Views [824]

It actually takes much longer than you’d think to get from Kuala Lumpur to Kampala; a 7hr flight to Dubai with a 5hr stop-over followed by another 7hr flight to Entebbe with a touchdown in Addis Ababa.   To be honest this broke up the 2 nd leg of ... Read more >

A Gander at Uganda

UGANDA | Saturday, 23 Aug 2008 | Views [1404]

On getting to the airport in Dar Es Salaam we were not only relived to see that Air Uganda actually exists but also very pleased to learn that they were expecting us.   Check-in was smooth, hassle free and in actual fact the flight was virtually ... Read more >


Zanzibar - A Tropical Paradise Spice Island ?

TANZANIA | Monday, 11 Aug 2008 | Views [705] | Comments [1]

We had to get up at 5am in Arusha to catch the early bus that we hoped would get us to Dar Es Salaam in time for the last ferry over to Stone Town, Zanzibar.   The first obstacle was getting out of the guesthouse in the wee, dark hours.   We’d told ... Read more >
