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.

As we look at the task of recruiting, two of the team who are experienced in graphic design have already begun to develop the logo, motto, and some promotional material that can be used along with a Facebook page, since the youth here are very oriented to social media.
Breakfast was at 5:00am so I woke up at 4:00am, packed my bags and took them to the truck before eating (and feeding the stray dog a fried egg). We left Lake Bunyonyi at 6:00am and started our long day drive. We stopped off after an hour to photograph the sunrise but then we hit road works. The roads were so bumpy they really shouldn't have been open to the public. By that stage I was busting as I'd drank quite a bit of water and the ...
... where we met our guides Robert and Rachel. We drove up the road for a while and then struck off on foot down the steep hill into the forest. Occasionally Robert would stop and listen and he told us that they had trackers out in the forest looking for chimps and then relaying their location by phone to him. We walked for perhaps an hour and thought we weren't going to see anything when we suddenly came upon a small clearing where we looked up and saw some chimps feeding ...
