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

Nach Pakwach sind wir mit dem leersten aller Minibusse gekommen. Am Ende der Fahrt hatten wir die komplette letzte Reihe für uns, und ich fragte mich, ob dies das Ende der Welt markierte. Die beschloss aber, noch ein Weilchen weiter zu existieren, so dass wir Ugandas einzige Stadt am Nil und seine etwa 23.000 Einwohner kennenlernen konnten. Weiterlesen

Kidepo Valley Nationalpark II – Kidepo Valley National Park II

e/d 48 pictures

Part II
Exploring Kidepo Valley National Park is like exploring an ancient isolated paradise, hidden and protected by mountain ranges. It is an original savannah with patches of swampland, mountains, valleys, stands of borassus palms and sausage trees. The place is dominated by the remnants of the Katurum lodge, towering over the valley. It had been planned and built during the Idi Amin regime, but got abandoned because of political instability. Right now, it is getting renovated, because an investor is planning to turn the bunker-like structure into a four-star luxury accommodation including a spa and a night club. Weiterlesen
