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.

We set off about 30 minutes late from the hotel and dropped the medical team off in Matugga and the rest of us headed on to Bombo. The town is very spread out and has the look of a Wild West town.

... and met up with them on a number of occasions. Tanya and Dean Griffioen were in their early thirties and had decided to quit their jobs and spend three years traveling the world on a motorbike. They had shipped their motorbike from Queensland to Johannesburg and were following a very similar route to us through Africa. We thought that they were crazy traveling all that way on a motorbike, and they thought that we were crazy using local transport. This is their story. ...
... since we arrived. Today Isaac asked us why people carry things on their heads. This is another photo that has been hard to capture. We are usually driving or sitting in still traffic and along with the women carrying things on their heads there are so many vendors walking along the van trying to sell you their goods that we have to keep the windows closed and it is a good thing we have air conditioning in there. This is the only air ...
Not much of a story today as we were up and out of the apartment at 8:00 a.m. and off to the airport. This is where we caught up with Ryan and Vanessa as they spent time with a friend in London but are traveling with us to Uganda. We spent a very long day on an airplane and landed at Entebbe at about 11:00 ...
