VISIT UGANDA WITH MARGARET STEVENS IN NOVEMBER 2019

Margaret is flying to Uganda (from Birmingham, via Amsterdam) with KLM on Monday 28th October and returning on Wednesday 27th November. Does anyone want to come with her? The sooner you book, the cheaper the cost of flights, which you will have to arrange yourself – Margaret paid less than £400!

Margaret, Ben and Robert will plan what we do when we know who is coming and what you want to do. There will be opportunities for short-term VOLUNTARY WORK in Teso where we will spend most of the time, but we will also visit other places, including Pian Upe Reserve. To find out more about what you can do in Teso, click on VISIT TESO.

Here is a completely random selection of photos to whet your appetite, any of which you could take on this trip!

A NEW REVIEW

I went with Ben as Guide and Driver last November. I went on my own and had an excellent time, I felt really safe and well taken care of. Great accommodation and treatment everywhere we went. Ben is an experienced wildlife guide and has a great knowledge that he willingly shared, not just about the wildlife in Uganda but, also about traditions and culture. Ben took me and another woman around Uganda for a week in a van, we got to see lions, hippos, monkeys, buffalos, chimps and elephants among others, not to mention all the birds. The highlight for me was the gorillas in Bwindi NP.

Kibale Forest is one of the best places to see Chimpanzees and other primates.

It is not very common to see Leopards – we saw not just one, but two in the same day!

A DAY IN MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK

Here is a random selection of just a few of the photos taken during a day in Murchison Falls National Park.

There are many herds of elephants – but there’s nothing to compare with the excitement of seeing your first elephant!

 

There are many antelope to be seen, including large herds of Uganda Kob.

 

Watching a giraffe eat the leaves of a tall acacia thorn tree makes you realise what long necks and even long tongues they have!

There are so many Rothschild’s Giraffes, especially amongst the acacia thorn trees.

 

Bee-eaters are some of the most beautiful birds imaginable, as are Kingfishers.

 

 

There are a variety of water birds, by the Nile, by Lake Albert and by little pools.

 

If you are lucky, you will see Lions, although it is very rare to see a Leopard. You may also see Hyenas and Side-striped Jackals.
