Safari

HIV talk

Our second HIV talk

On Friday we took part in another HIV talk at a secondary school before heading off on safari to Queen Elizabeth National Park.  As anyone who has been to eastern or southern Africa would agree, this is one of the highlights of spending time in this part of the world.  Almost as fun was camping with the guys, going to sleep with the sound of hippos outside the tent and waking up to the similar sound of Rob inside it…

On game drives in the Ishasha sector of the park we saw elephants, hippos, warthogs, baboons, buffalos and a hyena.  I particularly enjoyed the boat safari along the Kazinga Channel between lakes Edward and George.

On the Sunday I went chimpanzee tracking; unfortunately I missed out in some respects – the others who had not come with me saw lions and a leopard, but I would not have swapped places.  Amazing as they are, I have seen them several times in other parts of Africa, but I had never had the opportunity to see chimps at such close quarters…
