2012 July 15 We started with breakfast at 7:00 immediately followed by a nature walk where we had a chance to see habituated chimps at the Budongo nature park. We walked for an hour and startled a group of black colobus monkeys in the tree tops, who took off flying up in the canopy. But, no chimps. We only had the nature walk option, as the official "chimp walk" is reserved for a maximum of 24 people per day, and our group could not be fitted in ... well ... we knew that when we left on safari ... but we were still hoping we might get lucky ... I guess the chimp walk will have to be another time. The walk lasted about 2 hours, where our guide identified several bird calls ... not being twitchers, this was only mildy interesting to us.
After that, it was a lunch break with typical Ugandan faire, and then the long drive back to Kampala.
Got back to Kampala in time to walk down to the bus station and book a seat to Kigali in the morning.

This summer we were over the map starting in different places. Then we joined together in Zambia, and after a short trip to Chobe NP in the Okowongo delta, we proceeded east via Malawi to Northern Mozambique.
