  • A Dead Lion! A Dead Lion!

    • From: mindybum
    • Description:

      Being a budget traveller, alone in Kenya, I decided to join a group for a camping safari in Amboseli National Park.  The other two that joined me were german guys close to my age.  We were enjoying the long drive from Nairobi, but were getting a little tired by the time we arrived into the park.  It seemedDead Lion a bit barren as we rolled through mile after mile of sandy lake bottom.  Finally, we approached a small bit of vegetation next to a stream, with clumps of medium height grasses.  All of sudden, one of my fellow travellers said "Look, a dead lion!"  We stopped the car and backed up to see.  Luckily, the lion was not dead, only sleeping! But, he was RIGHT next to the road (less than 15 feet away from our car!) He woke up and lifted his head for a few minutes so I snapped as many pictures as I could!

  • How I Planned for My Gorilla T How I Planned for My Gorilla Trekking Safari to Uganda

    • From: safaris
    • Description:

      As expected it was unbeaten although i had to meet up with a lot to get hold of the greatest out of my gorilla safari to Uganda. Everything began from the work i perused with reference to these apes. The essay titled, "Gorillas in the Mist" gave me a thought and i absolutely considered Africa for my next place to track the mountain gorillas.

      I visited Google  for gorilla safaris and i arrived at a lot of choices and preferences. My major fret was the cost given that i believe myself a budget traveler. In order to visit the gorillas, you must pick between Bwindi in Uganda and Parc De Volcans in Rwanda. I selected Uganda for its so adventurous much as i was told that its easier to see these giant apes in Rwanda than Uganda.

      A gorilla permit costs USD 500 per person per trek. Its very critical to book your  gorilla permit beforehand, at least 3 months before your actual tracking date. This is what i say in the gorilla section for a realistic travel guide to Uganda. With regards to Uganda Safaris

      Deciding on a tour operator to handle my safari was as tough as the trek itself! Most of the safari companies are standard and have competent guides and reliable cars.  Susanette of Adventure Uganda Safari helped he decide on their company due to the fast and detailed response i received.

      Tips for A Successful Gorilla Safari.
      Book your gorilla permit at least 3 months to your actual trekking date.

      Make sure you arrange your bookings with a recognised gorilla tour operator. At least members of AUTO.

      Take time to be physically fit before your trek. Searching for the gorillas can take a full day.

      A maximum number of 8 visitors may visit a group(family) of habituated gorillas in a day. This minimizes behavioral disturbances to the gorillas and the risk of their exposure to human-borne diseases.

      Always wash your hands before you head out to the gorillas.

      Do not leave rubbish in the park. Whatever you bring into the forest should be carried back with you.

      You will be taken to where the guides left the gorillas the day before. From there you will follow the gorillas trial to find them. Look out for the gorillas nesting sites along the way.

      When you approach the gorillas, the guides will inform you when to get your cameras ready.
      Please always keep your voices low. You will also be able to observe the great bird life and other wildlife in the forest.

      When You Are With The Gorillas....

       Keep a minimum of 7 meters (21feet) from the gorillas. This is to protect gorillas from human disease transmission.

        You must stay in a light group when you are near the gorillas.

        Keep your voices low at all times. However, it is okay to ask the guide questions.

        Do not eat or drink while you are near the gorillas to reduce the risk of disease transmission.

        Sometimes the gorillas charge. Follow the guide’s example crouch down slowly, do not look at the gorillas in the eyes, and wait for the animals to pass. Do not attempt to run away. Running away will increase the risk of attack.

        Flash photography is not permitted, when taking pictures, move slowly and carefully.

        Do not touch the gorillas. They are wild animals.

        The maximum time visitors are allowed to spend with the gorillas is one hour to limit their disturbances. If the gorillas become agitated or nervous, the guide will end the visit early.

        After the visit, keep your voices down until you are 200 meters away from the gorillas.

      Accommodation
      All budgets are catered for. I made an effort to tour the places, and i was impressed with the Gorilla Resort and Buhoma Homestead.

      I encourage you all to visit the Mountain gorillas before they become extinct. Remember there are about 700 mountain gorillas left in the whole world.

      What else to Combine your gorilla tracking safari with?
      A safari to Kenya will enable you see the Masai Mara migration, Amboseli park and Lake Nakuru. You can as well take on Tanzania Safaris with visits to Ngorongoro crater, Serengeti or even Lake Manyara National Parks.
