Queen Elizabeth + Pictures!
This weekend we took a little "safari" to Queen Elizabeth National Park. It's a big and really wonderful game park in the Western/Southwestern part of the country. The drive from Bushenyi up to Kasese is really beautiful too - the scenery changes from the hills of our district to the flatlands of the park, to the foothills of the Rwenzoris! Amazing country!
We had really hoped to see the tree climbing lions, and although they evaded us we did see a number of other really interesting animals: Kobs, Buffalos, Hyena, Birds, Hippos, Crocodiles, etc. We took a game drive and 6 am and then a boat ride on the Kazinga Channel in the afternoon. We had a great time with friends and exploring another part of this beautiful country!
