It has been a while since I blogged, I got carried away with other work and did not catch up on all writing accruing from all the travel that has happened over time. I decided to start from where I stopped and finish the series of the 25 days tour of Uganda the Pearl of Africa. Hopefully I will catch up with all the travels that have happened since then and have up to date blogs before the year ends.
Day 15 & 16 were spent a my Aunties house in Fort portal. It was a perfect getaway and good break coming in the middle of the tour. Uganda is very beautiful and each day brought new activities and sites but I think a part of me was missing interacting with people at home. It had been many years since I last visited my Aunt who also happens to be my god mother, therefore this was a perfect opportunity to link up with her and my cousins.
On the other side of the tour, the visitors had an opportunity to do a whole day birding in Kibale forest. They were looking forward to seeing the elusive Green breasted Pitta which has become localized in the forest. After hours of waiting, it eventually showed up but for just a moment. Over all it was a fruitful day birding after the previous day in the chimpanzee habituation experience. Later in the evening, they did a night game drive in search of the nocturnal animals especially the primates and they sighted a Bush baby also known as Galago and Pottos. This was a 2 hour night walk in the forest after which they returned to the lodge for the much needed rest.
After enjoying the ‘mini-break’ from the Safari, we continued we continued the safari to Masindi where we would be birding Budongo forest for some interesting birds and a few primates.
