... to prompt for it. It was really disappointing after such a fantastic introduction in Ghana. I wasn’t sure if the lousy welcome was a result of my late arrival due to the flight issue or if this is how they greet all volunteers. I’m glad this wasn’t my first experience in Africa, because I think I would have been on the first plane home.
I stayed that evening at Hotel Mansy and was asked to report back to the UVP office with my luggage at 9am the next ...
Today was a day with a lot of travel and a bit of wildlife. We had a flight leaving the Mara at 11:00. So after packing and breakfast, we left with George (our guide) for a game drive to the airport. The Mara is incredible - it seems that over every hill and around every corner there is a new group of animals, often with a new story (or drama).

... to no one – that no one is ultimately responsible for them. Anyways, it was continually interesting to me how this played out even in casual encounters. I’m sure I would have been much more uptight about it if it had been my first child!

Speke Resort is everything younxhould expect in a world class resort . This was a reallynpleasantnarrival after running the 40km gauntlet of peak traffic at 8:00pm on a Saturday evening. Businesses run and the streets are busy from 8:00am to midnight every day - or so said our enterprising driver.
The Routes Africa Summit would prove to be challenging though and with the beckoning shores Lake Victoria clearly visible from my breakfast table, I would come no closer exploring the much-beckoning vaunted beauty of Uganda and it's famous gorilla and chimpanzees.
Four days later, I departed before dawn for the famous Entebbe Airport and my trip back to South Africa. My most memorable anecdote: that Idi Amin had decimated the rhinompopulation to extinction in replenishing his diminishing coffers.
