    Elephant on the Nile

    Elephants are incredible beings. They hold a special place in my heart. There are few elephants left in Uganda, and seeing one up close is a rarity. They are scared of humans, and shy away from us out of fear.

    This morning, we took a five hour boat ride along the Nile deta. The boat ride was peaceful. With the sun rising behind us, we couldn't help but enjoy every second on the Nile. We saw some amazing wildlife out on the boat safari. A variety of birds, including ...

    ... got to the rivers edge and saw the ferry pulling away. We were disappointed as the next ferry was in 2 hours. The next thing we knew, the ferry was turning around to come for us. BC Ferries would never do that!! After the 10 minutes crossing of the Nile river, we drove for another 5 minutes and arrived at the Paras Lodge. This place is classy, there were porters to carry our bags and greeters with cold face clothes and ...

    ... about their habits, dally routine and childbirth story. Uganda had lots of rhinos until the 1960s when they were all wiped out. This programme has been breeding and reintroducing rhino to Uganda and they have moved from 3-15 rhinos since the sanctuary began. The sanctuary was shared with leopards and hippos as well as a large variety of birds and other wildlife. We were informed that when they woke and moved to the shade which they would as the day was getting hotter, ...
