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.

Alpaca – Animals With Attitude

There are a number of reasons to love alpaca fibre products – they are soft, warm and luxurious to the touch, as well as light weight and fashionable. There is another factor which makes the fibre all the more appealing to some – its amazing creature of origin. The alpaca has been bred for thousands of years in the Andes region of South America, but keeping them in the United Kingdom has only really taken off over the last decade. The majority of people who keep these intriguing animals do so for their fibre, though there are several other advantages that make alpacas stand out to farmers, smallholders and hobbyists.Both the Huacaya and the Suri alpaca are packed with personality and are generally docile, affectionate and gentle. They do not have hooves like many other herbivorous livestock, meaning that there is less risk of injury through kicking. Their padded feet are also kinder to pasture, they do not churn up the ground and damage valuable grazing land. The fact that alpacas have an exceptionally efficient digestive system also minimises their environmental impact, they can thrive on relatively small amounts of food, though owners need to bear in mind they browse as well as graze, so will almost certainly make a meal of hedges! Careful attention needs to be paid to how much alpacas eat, as they can become overweight easily which, like being underweight, can impact on the quality of their fibre. Experts recommend giving alpacas at least an acre of pasture, as they enjoy space to exercise as well as to graze. For larger herds approximately an acre of land per six animals is preferable. As social animals, alpacas should not be kept alone. For those with limited space, a pair of either females or gelded males is a popular choice, as the animals can keep each other company with minimal arguments!The strong herding instinct of the alpaca means that it is also ideally suited to another, more surprising role – it is an excellent guard animal. It is possible for alpacas to ‘adopt’ other species as their own herd, meaning that they will defend them from predators as they would their own group in the wild. In the UK they are most commonly used to guard sheep or poultry from foxes, especially during early parts of the year when young are born. Since 1986 Prince Charles’ Duchy Home Farm has been a trailblazer in the world of organic farming. Today Home Farm is the home of a flock of around 450 organically farmed sheep. Like many other farmers, His Royal Highness used to lose a number of young lambs to foxes each year, some seasons as many as 50 new lambs were taken by the efficient predators. Recently, however, the foxes have met their match – a group of four male gelding alpacas! Whenever the foxes slink into view, the observant alpacas set about chasing them away from their sheep ‘family’, running after the foxes and even giving them a kicking if necessary! It doesn’t take long for the foxes to get the message and hunt for their dinner elsewhere. Thanks to the trusty alpaca Prince Charles didn’t lose a single lamb during 2008.
