Today is the 50th anniversary of its independence from Britain.
|Bwindi Impenetrable National Park rainforest from my verandah,|
Engagi Lodge, Buhoma.
|Florence, trekking guide extraordinaire; she lives with her mum and three-year old daughter Blessed.|
|Porters Joseph and Mary (true!).|
As ever in rainforest, light is difficult for photography (no flashes of course) and moving to a better angle isn't always possible.
|Young Eastern Mountain Gorillas, above and below. One of these stopped in passing (we weren't to |
approach them, but the rules don't apply to them!) and tugged at my trouser leg. A special moment.
And more on Uganda in posts to come.
