We woke up early for a game drive in Queen Elizabeth Park. As I was awakening I heard a roar of an animal. We had become accustomed to hearing hippos grunt in the river but I thought this was different. Lindy and I went outside to listen more closely and we realized we were listening to the roar of a lion. We later found out that the lion killed a …

... though is a must for everyone now! A group of local boys were very excited when they saw Megan, they offered us 10 cows for her. An offer we couldn't refuse surely! Luckily they were just joking with us. The walk down to the orphanage was treacherous to say the least! We were all slipping and sliding with our arms out for balance and sound effects to match. The kids in the village found us highly amusing! One of our Ugandan friends who walked down with us didn't slip at ...

Dead wildebeest in Masai Mara, traffic in Kampala

... on slowly and they pass us. We can tell it is Nyika by his orange Nomad “Cape Town to Uganda” tee shirt. They get a bit ahead and we lose them, only picking them up waiting on a corner to turn left after we have missed the turn. We carry on to the next small street and do a three point turn on the main road with traffic held up both ways. It is probably something you can get away with in third world traffic.

We pick them up again, make the turn, ...

... trek. Stoked! Then we headed into the downtown city center to walk around and get a feel for the city. It had been five years since Zach was here last, so it was pretty new to both of us. The city is big, tons of people and lots of activity. After a few hours we found a sweet local place for lunch. We were the only mzungus, which is usually a good sign. Fried chicken, rice, beans, cabbage, and matooke (Uganda's version of ugali but made with bananas). Yum yum yum. ...

... helped me through immigration and the process of getting a Ugandan Visa. I didn't end up arriving in Kampala until about ten pm. Of course, none of the motorbikes outside of the bus stop knew where my hostel was, but the guy who took the tickets on the bus took me to Horizon's office to sit down while he looked for someone who knew the place. A nice young boy drove ...

    This lodge was situated perfectly over the Kazinga channel. From your room's back patio, the swimming pool or restaurant, you can watch the many elephants, hippos, buffaloes, do their thing across the way - the view alone is worth the tariff. It's about a 15 minute drive to QEP gates, however animals can be seen on the drive. Also, there is a family of mongoose that live on the property - they're approachable and used to humans, so have some fun taking pictures. The room and bathroom was well appointed and it was great to get a hot shower with pressure after awhile without it. We also used their laundry service which took only a half-day and we were not charged the rush fee - cost about $25USD for 1.5 loads. The restaurant's food was great - full breakfast and dinner and the packed lunch was more than enough. My wife got a massage and was absolutely in heaven after it. I recommend this lodge thoroughly.

    Mweya is the ultimate in luxury in Uganda. The luxury tents are fantastic. They are very intimate and private. It is very relaxing to sit out on the deck which overlooks the channel while listening to the sounds of the animals.
