Toro Crater Lakes – Die Toro Kraterseen

e/d 32 pictures

Starting north of Fort Portal, a concentration of crater lakes runs down south alongside the western border of Kibale National Park with its groups of habituated chimpanzees. The crater lakes south of Fort Portal sprawl over a large region with a lush, hilly countryside and a patchwork of cultivated areas and remnants of swamps as well as indigenous forest with a profusion of birds, monkeys and butterflies. One of the most beautiful is Lake Nkuruba, where the community-run Original Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve is protecting the surrounding rainforest which is bursting with black-and-white colobus, red colobus, red-tailed and other monkeys. The lakes tend to be quite deep, and the water is clear and cool (but not too cool)– perfect for a relaxing swim. Weiterlesen

Semliki National Park – Wo Ruwenzori und Kongo-Regenwald aufeinandertreffen – Where Rwenzori mountains and Congo rainforest clash

d/e 26 pictures

Versteckt in einem entlegenen Winkel Ugandas liegt im Tal des Semliki der Semliki Nationalpark, in dem 220 km2 des Bwamba-Waldes geschützt werden. Von Fort Portal aus führt eine erst in den letzten Jahren asphaltierte, spektakuläre Straße am nördlichen Ende der Ruwenzori-Berge entlang hinab ins Semliki-Tal auf der Westseite der Ruwenzoris. Der Bwamba-Wald ist der östlichste Ausläufer des kongolesischen Ituri-Waldes und Teil des Kongobecken-Regenwalds. Es ist der einzige Tiefland-Regenwald Ugandas und der Ort, wo das Kongobecken auf Ostafrika trifft. Weiterlesen

Ankarafantsika

Ankarafantsika

One of Madagascar’s most fascinating natural areas is located on an ascending ledge in the island’s north-western corner and appears quite unspectacular at first sight. In a dry, undulating and treeless area of the fourth biggest island and second biggest island state after Indonesia, Ankarafantsika is towering approximately 250m above the surrounding landscape. Intersected by Rue Nationale 4 on it’s way to Mahajanga, the National Park is brimming with dense dry forest, which is protected area since the 1920s and a National Park since the 70s. Weiterlesen
