After a much needed resting day at the Sheraton in Kampala, our crew headed to the town of Masindi to see the White Rhino’s (and cows with the most amazing horns!), the Budongo Central Forest Reserve to see the Chimpanzees, hiked Murchison Falls and did a safari in the area seeing lions, elephants, giraffes, hippos, water bucks, wart hogs, and baboons. It was incredible!
It’s a solid 2 days trip to do it all and we booked with Yebo Tours which for $390 took care of all the arrangements, transportation and accommodations (we slept in private huts in the mountains!). If you’re headed to the area, I highly recommend them. There was also a camp ground and housing facility at Budongo that looked very promising. We had lunch there before tracking the Chimps and their food and coffee we’re great. They also had wi-fi which was unexpected considering we were in nature.
I’ll fill in links and more details soon! At the moment I’m blogging from my phone so you can imagine the challenges. You can also follow me @prettyconnected for the latest in my adventures!
