I have been dreaming of going here for a long long time... A fascinating country with the opportunity to have a face-to-face encounter with two of the most special animals in the world: Mountain Gorillas & Chimpanzees!
It turned out even better then I expected. Not only did I see lots of them, I was also able to get really up close and personal at a distance of 2 meters or sometimes less. I got charged by a chimp with a stick, peed upon from a tree and the silverback jumped out of the bushes with a loud roar... Wearing diapers could be a good idea for some visitors ;-)
A very special experience which I will not forget quickly...

Next to the primates, Uganda has a lot more on offer! I even developed an interest in animals I didn't care about so far... birds! Lots of them overthere too! The most spectacular being the shoebill stork, which was difficult to get on camera, but I do have proof ;-)

It was hard to select the pictures, so I uploaded quite a few..
