d/e 23 pictures

Das Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) ist quasi der Zoo von Entebbe, der ehemaligen Hauptstadt Ugandas, die knapp 40 Kilometer von Kampala entfernt auf einer Halbinsel im Victoriasee liegt und Heimat von Ugandas internationalem Flughafen ist. Dieser ist 1976 Schauplatz der von der israelischen Armee durchgeführten „Operation Entebbe“ gewesen, bei der die Entführung einer Air France-Maschine durch Palästinenser und deutsche RAF-Idioten – die von Idi Amin unterstützt worden waren – beendet wurde.

From Kalinzu Forest, we caught a minibus to the east, to Mbarara where we had to change transport and took a big bus eastward on to Masaka near the shore of Lake Victoria. After the delicious Friday night BBQ buffet at the Frikadellen, a Danish-run eatery linked to the NGO Childcare Denmark, and a night at the Vienna Golden Hotel in Masaka (we couldn´t figure out why the hell this is called Vienna), we tried to take a minibus to Buggala Island, the largest island of the Ssese Archipelago which comprises 84 islands just off shore on Lake Victoria. There is a free ferry service commuting all day between the mainland east of Masaka and the western tip of Buggala Island, covering the three or four kilometres in around 40 minutes. Weiterlesen
