Lake Victoria from Lindsay Cottages, and flame tree, Kampala Uganda. 3 Aug.

Mabamba Bay Wetland, Uganda. 4 Aug.

This was the Finfoot lake.

 

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest area, 5-8 Aug.

I gave up on any kind of cogent organization of these photos, so here goes, by row:

1: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest signs.
2+3: The actual forest, we hiked up and over that tallest hill. Took us 5 hours to reach the gorillas.
4: The trail we followed, until it gave out to just forest on right.
5: A view from the hill, and a mountain stream.
6: Another stream.
7: Another stream, and another view.
8: More trailless areas we trekked through.
9: Our motley group, and one of the guards.
10: You can clearly see the edge of the protected forest on the left, and then one of the trails we birded the enxt day.
11: The group, and some coffee plants.
12: More coffee, one of Uganda's leading exports, a park sign, and a river from the road.


Views of Lake Edward, Cape Elizabeth National Park, and the Rwempunu River in the park, 8 Aug.

I had my best day with odonates at this river crossing.


Cape Elizabeth National Park scenes and plants and then a couple of rivers while driving, 9 Aug.
