Welcome to our Africa blog

We hope all our families and friends will log in from time to time to see how we're getting on - and just to touch base. We all know we shall miss everyone and this is one of the ways we hope to keep in touch. And, of course, we shall be logging on to Skype and emailing whenever we get the chance. This is a massive adventure for us all with a shed load of planning , but once you've fallen for Africa you just have to see more. So here we go!

Camps Rwanda and Uganda


Seeds of Peace, Kayonza, overlooking Lake Muhazi. not suitable for roof top tents but Rondavels good value. lovely quiet spot

Red Rocks, near Musanze. The people at this inter cultural centre made us most welcome and for 2 days we felt part of the local community. beautiful views of mountains all around. We even learned how to cook local food.


Lake Bunyonyi. Beautiful spot, good for meeting fellow travellers.

Simba Safari Camp, just north of Queen Elizabeth Park. good spot to avoid paying exorbitant park fees for foreign vehicles. They arranged game drive and boat trip along Kisingi channel.

Chimpanzee Forest Camp, Kibale forest.

Lovely spot, very helpful staff summoning up a local mechanic to sort car problems. Excellent morning bird walk

Nile Safari Lodge, Murchison falls

Excellent campsite just outside murchison Falls park, a few 100 metres from lodge. Magnificent views of the Nile. They arranged bot trip to bottom of falls, but view better from top.

Masindi hotel. Good stopover. they can arrange taxi to Budongo forest for chimpanzee tracking, but you need to book the trek direct.

The Haven Jinja

A superb site overlooking Nile. Best showers so far. could sit here for sometime watching birds, river and rafters
