  • On the road in Uganda: Tour Leader Account

    Posted on January 21st, 2010 admin No comments

    From Serra Hughes, currently leading a group in Uganda:
    “Wow, you guys! It’s amazing here. Uganda is where it’s at! It’s just too beautiful for words and every day is a crazy adventure. My group has quite a few seasoned travellers and they’re up for just about anything, which makes for all the more fun! Things are so different; drivers just get out of the car during game drive and stand on the engine bonnet looking around, no binoculars, no guide books, no nothing. The people are so friendly and not jaded by tourists at all. They just wave and smile and want to shake your hand and talk and the chimpanzees were mad. Totally mad. There are no words to describe seeing them in the wild. They are show-offs and seem to love the attention. Most of them, at least. Some of them are shy and run off for no reason. At one point, at the end of the day, they were all lying around relaxing in the bushes and the trackers said to get ready because any minute, one of them would give the signal and it would be time to move. WOW. Suddenly, it was all action with the screaming and hooting that they do and one was making a racket drumming on the trunk of a hollow tree. The entire forest was filled with their maniacal sounds and they were all around us running and jumping and we were just trucking along with them. It’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced.”
