Speke Resort & Conference Centre

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 wandered around the shopping centre it was very similar to shopping centres in Australia with grocery stores, clothes, shoe shops , phone stores etc. Except they have a Woolworths here that is actually a fancy clothes shop and not a food store! Very different. Had a very relaxing hour by the pool when we got back to the guest house. The weather here today was just Devine. The sunset was just stunning. God really spoilt us today! ...
We get awoken by one of the hostel staff telling us we need to check out. We thought we had another as the trip starts tomorrow and we had no idea where we was staying! We get up, slightly hungover shower, pack and leave the room. We store our bags and up to meet Mark and Kate with the intention to get on a boda boda (a motorcycle taxi) and visit some sites. Unfortunately the guys need to sort some of there trip out so we ...
... sure he understood. Takes about an hour to get to hostel place and reception is all closed, bearing in mind it's about 1 in the morning, tip the driver a few pound coins and he laughs, no idea why, until we get Ugandan coins which look the same but are next to nothing. He'll realise when he gets home! Head to room which has a double bed and a single, each fitted with mosquito nets, it is a high risk malaria zone after all. After the bags have exploded everywhere we fall asleep! ...
... quirks and things that have happened this week, along with a keyring. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal before heading off for a last day with the children. We were dropped off at the top of the village for our last walk down to the orphanage. We are now familiar with many of the village children and so they joined us and we walked down together. We stopped off half way up and bought 36 bottles of soda and chocolate biscuits for the children to enjoy. On arrival, everyone was ...
