One of the delights about coming to Africa, apart from the wonderful, friendly people, is the opportunity to see African animals in the wild. I never tire of a game drive or trek to be able to view animals in their natural habitat.
Usually one thinks of the Maasai Mara in Kenya, the Serengeti and Oldavai Gorge in Tanzania or even Kruger Park in South Africa but there are opportunities to see game in western Uganda as well.
Last week I traveled from the Kibale Forest region of Uganda near Fort Portal to Murchison Falls Park and was surprised by the biodiversity I encountered. Here are a few photos of animals and birds I saw last week, some unique to Uganda. Does it entice you to come on safari in East Africa?
