I didn’t expect to go to Uganda on my last trip to Africa… but so many people  I met said not to leave until I spent some time there. So happy I did… only 2 weeks but long enough to know I want to go back.

 

One highlight was a chimpanzee habituation that I took part in for a couple of days. It was a highlight of my time there. Tracking the chimps through the forest, watching them in the  trees and experiencing a ” chimp frenzy” where they all dropped from the trees and rushed past us in what would be called an eye-opening experience.

 

The black raw diamonds are the chimps hanging from the trees and the peridots below are the shrubs and grasses that they drop down to. The perimeter is the expanse of the Kibale National Forest and the mokume is the sky during sunset.
