Wild Life Trekking

On the 15th of May 2009, it was a bright day for us in Murchison falls Uganda. We embarked on an early morning game drive on the northern bank of Murchison falls where our tour guide spotted for us lions. Buffalo s and Rothschild giraffes, wildebeests, water bucks, bush bucks, reed bucks were seen in big numbers. I enjoyed viewing the amazing giraffes feeding on the tree leaves as high as the tree tops as we cruised on the boat upstream the calm Victoria Nile and the base of the falls just tens of meters from the “Devil’s Cauldron. There we marveled at toothsome hippos, crocodiles and over the 17-kilometer stretch we were able to see elephants, water bucks and Uganda cob not forgetting the many bird species like the Goliath herons, Egyptian geese, pelican bee-eaters, kingfishers, Horn bills, cormorants and the rare shoe bill stork. After taking shots of the photogenic Murchison Falls we returned Uganda Safaris Lodge for relaxation, dinner and an overnight.The following morning, we embarked on a whole day drive with our packed lunch we drove via the Albertan Escarpment of the western Rift valley. We passed through verdant countryside and traditional homesteads and farms. Fort Portal rests in the shadow of the Fabled “Mountains of the Moon”.

We arrived Kibale national park in the afternoon and had our Dinner and overnight at Luxury safari Lodge in the Park.In the morning before sunset we drove to the forest in search of primates like chimpanzees, Red-Colombuses, Blues, Red-tailed and Grey cheeked Mangrove monkeys swung on trees through a dense forest.we also viewed a few birds, butterflies and many small insects. All in a close quarter, at a swamp Eco-tourism site we encountered rare and beautiful flora and fauna.Next we proceeded to Queen Elizabeth National Park following the mystical Mountain Range most of the journey. We viewed water bucks, Buffaloes and a variety of Antelope species arriving in time for an evening unique 2-hour boat cruise on the channel and into Lake Edward. This cruise passed through the highest concentration of breeding Hippos, bird species like the kingfisher at the banks of the channel plus animals like elephant and buffaloes were drinking water at the edge. We passed by a gorge for a forest walk to look for the habituated chimpanzees and other primates with the help of sticks which were provided by the game rangers. We went Sight seeing around the creator lakes region set deep into the volcanic creators, interacted with the local salt makers and Baboon cliff all was a wonderful memorable experience.The following morning we were transferred to a Gorilla national park, but first we got involved in a game drive along a track and Queens Mile in the park to see Lions, Elephants, Cape buffalo, Warthogs, leopard, hyena, mongoose, water bucks etc.We later had our dinner and over night stay at lake tented Camp.Early in the morning entered into a gorilla sanctuary. The rain forest was spectacular one; it offered a dramatic, heavily forested and dense landscape crisscrossed by numerous animal trails, allowing access for us. The Recorded mammals there included the endangered mountain gorilla, the rare golden monkey, buffalo, elephants, bush bucks, leopards, giant forest hogs as well as other animals. The park is best known for the fascinating gorillas, where the time taken and terrain varies according to the movements of the marvelous primates. The thrill of spending time with and observing the gorillas is a rare, moving, awesome and exciting adventure. The gorillas were shy and peaceful, what was an unforgettable experience to watch and photographed them as they interact with each other!In Mburo National Park, we drove along the lake shore track, and with its own system of game trails and cleared walkways, that offered interesting guided lakeside walks. Here we found herds of zebra, Cape buffalo and eland, were easy to approach. Along with the game drive, we also enjoyed a boat trip on L.Mburo and self-guided nature trails. More than 250 species of birds were around the Lake including Papyrus, the extraordinary White winged Warbler and Bare-Faced Go-away bird. Later that day we returned to Kampala stopping at the Royal Drum Makers and the equator and took photographs.
