CHARLOTTE BEAUVOISIN, AKA NAGAWA, SHARES SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT TRAVEL TO AND WITHIN UGANDA
(Posted 07th September 2020)
(The Black and White Casqued Hornbill is a noisy – but shy – bird. I just love how this one looked at me! Kibale Forest Edge)
Dear ATCNews Readers – greetings from the Edge of Kibale Forest – where the national park is now open again for visitors.
There has been a lot of talk about Kampala going back into lockdown but it hasn’t happened (yet). With more than 30 deaths of #COVID19, are Ugandans taking the pandemic seriously? We do our best to simply stay home…
Thankfully our internet connectivity is now vastly improved and I have been mastering Zoom meetings (do remember to brush your hair next time Charlotte!)
IF YOU CAN ONLY READ ONE POST, READ THIS
When can I travel to Uganda? Post lockdown FAQs
Are you following my #LockdownDiaries?
"Tonight I am back in my wooden cottage on the edge of Kibale Forest listening to the elephants making their way through the bush some metres from my house." Read And finally, a sighting!
We’ve recently had an opportunity to spread our wings. Twice a year, the Sunbird Hill team carry out bird population monitoring on behalf of NatureUganda. This voluntary activity takes us to Semliki Wildlife Reserve and Semliki National Park, Lake Saka and Katonga Wildlife Reserve. The bird counts are an amazing learning experience and we frequently have these wild places to ourselves. I tag along as the scribe (and very amateur birder).
Look what I dusted off for you this week… a few stories you may have missed:
If you’re day dreaming about travel, my Travel Directory lists Lodges, Things To do and Tour Operators in Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya. Remember safaris take time to plan 😉
I also have local lodge promotions on my Facebook page.
