A simple reward for hiking in the Uganda's biggest National Park!!
Uganda wasn't in our plans, but many of the people we met, told us that the pearl of Africa (Uganda) was something that we could not miss. So, we made a little detour in our trip plans. Added this little wonder to our way.
One of the highlights was the white water rafting in Jinja. This means 8 hours, 30 Km and 14 rapids starting close to the source of the Nile river with the add-on of crocodiles in the river border.
Kampala, Uganda's capital city, was our exploration base. From there we went to Murchison falls. Of course we decide to not take a tour. This resulted in taking a ride in the back of the park ranger's truck in the middle of the night to go to our campsite. The ride wasn't the best but the beer we drunk together (in the back of the truck) certainly was!
Camping in Africa is always exotic. The last time we were visited by the
Hippos, and this time by the Wild Pigs. If we don't see the Lion King fore sure we see Bumba... hehe.
Finding internet in Uganda is quite easy, but using the internet is
Nile river boat trip
The boat we took up the Nile didn't have safety jackets. They wouldn't help you stay alive for long time.
quite difficult. The country suffers of power shortage; this means 24 hour on and 24 hours off on every city. But, having power doesn't means having connexion. We took two weeks to finish this update. And gess what, using a generator.
