An unexpected find in the middle of Uganda

Reviewed Jul 6, 2013
by (4 reviews) , South Africa Flag of South Africa

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.

... Kenya. The morning arrived and we were collected from our hotel. It was actually nice not to have to think at all for 2 and a half days!! We picked up one man who was from Saudi Arabia, who barely spoke, although he bought us a bag of maltesers, and were then joined by two Israeli girls in their thirties. That was our little group. This was going to be a barrel of laughs we thought!! On the first game drive we saw many lions and the open plains of the Masai Mara were ...

... not a common occurrence here and a group of school children on their way home walked by us and stood around and watched us with curiosity. Some of them started getting really goofy when they realized we were taking pictures and then it was all over. They wanted to see the pictures, started posing and were giving Corey high fives to ...

... it wasn't just us who suffered!) and simple procedures such as rapid diagnostic testing, hygiene and isolation could increase attendance and prevent secondary complications. The majority of health issues at the school, with the appropriate investments in qualified health staff, could be addressed with the services of a clinic. Not rocket science but like most things in a Uganda, without any infrastructure, financial assistance or qualified and experienced staff, ...

... midnight, but I think if they can be bothered to turn up, then we will give them a workshop. W have also asked that they teach us the Ugandan baby wrapping technique and have been promised a real baby to cuddle. Think it will be a bit of a party ad it's the end of the course too so we are all looking forward to the afternoon. It might make PROMPT look a bit tame, so be warned midwives of a certain Trust, There may be changes ...

... without any silverware? We levelled it to 2 all
and the game went to extra time. There was a lot of frustrated hand
gestures towards the TV before Ramsey smashed in the 3rd

around going absolutely crazy. The pictures will tell the whole story
including an annoying prostitute who wanted to get in on every photo,
lol. Shaun was over the moon and you could not wipe ...
