e/d Return to Kampala – Rückkehr nach Kampala

Five years after our first visit to Uganda and its capital, we finally revisited Kampala in July – twice. Of course, it´s a characteristic African capital, which means that it has got a modern town centre as well as sheds, huts and slums as far as the eye can see – for probably close to two million inhabitants. But set on “seven hills” amidst a rolling landscape one can also instantly observe the ongoing battle for the souls and the lives of the Ugandan people while looking at Kampala. A battle, which failed to attract my attention back then, but therefor this time, it struck me right away! Weiterlesen

Lower Zambezi River II – Am Sambesi-Unterlauf II

…The best way to explore the Lower Zambezi region is by boat (especially if all possibilties to visit the National Park are occupied by huge Italian Overlander-groups hopping from one National Park to the other throughout the whole of Southern Africa, going 6.000 kilometres in only ten days, getting bored of watching hippos, crocs and elephants all the time and performing an abyss of ignorance when it comes to people and culture). In the dry season all the animals have to come to the river to drink, so this is the place to be. And sometimes you´re lucky enough that your boat breaks down and you find yourself stranded on an reed island where you can even see elephants footprints in the loose sand, so they can´t be very far. If you´re able to block out the many South African tourists, of which there are a lot drunks in small boats “fishing” or camping on sand banks with coolers full of beer, and the noisy Italian Overlander-groups with their pitiful South African drivers who take every chance to speak English to someone, then it´s a perfect piece of pristine African nature.
