An unexpected find in the middle of Uganda

Reviewed Jul 6, 2013

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 got really close to them and all the other safari trucks then followed suit. We knew that the National Geographic people must have been cursing all of the 'ugly tourists.' We did not know how to feel about that charge. Somehow it felt tacky and wrong, despite getting brilliant cheetah photographs. We blamed the ...

... boys' specific circumstances and details of their past. Mentoring has involved discussing their dreams for a more stable future and how we can work together to achieve that. Much of the work has involved restoring confidence and empowering the boys that the concepts of reintegration into working society and self sufficiency are plausible options for each of them. Seeing a group of 14-15 year old boys crowding around a small bin in one of the drop-in ...

... and whistles including walk-in appointments and a coffee shop. Not something the locals get. After a very thorough and professional examination Pito had the pleasure of a blood test and trying to squirt his bowel liquids into a tiny sample container for testing. Needless to say he came back through the waiting room rather bashful trying to cover the container which contained a gorgeous brown liquid that didn't resemble the brown liquid he normally prefers. He ...

We then gave them the footballs and nearly had a riot on our hands. Again, Emma took charge and we went outside to play ball games. It was a lovely morning and the children seemed to enjoy themselves, as did we. ...
