THE CHALLENGE - WHAT TO DO FIRST

...making a decision about what to do first, what to do in the middle and then how to end up - because time overruns always get in the way

THE SOLUTION

...you face a bewildering variety of options and no doubt your friends and family have their ideas about what should happen on a first trip to Africa. In response Tony has sketched a few options or modules - the elements of which are flexible. He would like you to spend time reviewing each itinerary along with the highlights in the slide show at the top of the page and then talk to him. Or Barbara, or both.
Uganda
Way to the north - a giant 3000kms step from The Tropic of Capricorn in South Africa to the Equator finds us alongside the massive Lake Victoria in Uganda. With the Ruwenzori Mountains over to the west on the edge of the Congo basin we fly to north Uganda and Lake Albert, the source of the great Nile. Accessed by air directly from Europe or South Africa, Uganda is ‘The Pearl of Africa’, a lush, exotic country offering a range of activities only an unspoilt equatorial African location can provide. It is stable and well run with an excellent tourist infrastructure. Some of the activities Tony recommends: · Sitting and watching Mountain gorilla family groups in the Bwindi Impenetrable and chimpanzees in the          Kibale National Parks. Its not unknown for young gorillas to take an interest in the watchers and carefully         touch an observer - a moment when both can look into each others eyes · Murchison Falls National Park has four of the ‘Big Five’, rhino being absent, with outstanding riverside         and savannah game viewing. The boat trip to view the very narrow gorge through which the Nile must         pass creates a violent and must be seen cataract that can be heard for miles. Birds are in such variety                                        and abundance that the most critical birder will be ecstatic. Notable game species are the Uganda Kob,          Rothschild’s giraffe, twelve species of primates including the rare Patas monkey. · Lake Mburo National Park is a real gem with an exceptional biodiversity arising from its varied          topography which includes a number of small lakes. It’s many habitats support a selection of antelope,          guided walks and horseback game viewing of species not easily seen elsewhere such as the Ugandan          Defassa waterbuck and East African impala.
