Gorillas and Chameleons

We woke early today, as we will every day of the safari, to get out while the animals are most active. We drove through the forest to the Ruhija gorilla camp, where we met our trackers and set off to find the Bitukura group.

Safari Start

Our safari guide Emmy Gongo picked us up in the morning, following some minor confusion about the address. His Land Cruiser arrived, and we were off in style.


With only one full day in Kigali, we resolved to make it count.

To Rwanda

We had a final breakfast and fruit shake at Bancafe, then stopped at an ATM for a topup of cash. Most machines don’t take MasterCard, which appears to far less widely accepted than Visa. Said goodbye to Chris and the guards at the Prestige, and were off to Entebbe to begin the vacation portion of the trip.

Last Day in Kampala

We’ve been in Kampala for two weeks, and feel like we’ve gotten to know our part of the city fairly well. We are confident crossing the street, negotiating boda fares, and navigating the slew of restaurants in town. Some fond memories to note, before we head off on the rest of the trip.
