We managed to leave earlier than usual at 09:48, but since we were heading to Rwanda which is only GMT +2 we told ourselves that we actually left at 08:48, almost a record. We took a narrow gravel back road which winded along around Lake Bunyonyi and later went really close to the edge of [...]

Keeping to our new pattern we only left at 11:00 again. The first 28km was on a gravel road through the rest of the forest and took 83 minutes. The road got very dusty towards the end. We got to the Kisoro-Kibale road which is a perfect tar road. The 24 km to Kibale only [...]

We didn’t get much sleep during the night as first people only left the restaurant really late at night and then the generator was running. Just as we got used to the sound of the generator it was already 05:00 in the morning and someone idled a vehicle for 10 minutes, just to switch it [...]

In the middle of the night nature called Caro, who then climb out of the tent. Hugo heard a loud scream and then the car started to shake. Caro stepped on what felt like scorpion stings and then jump on the bonnet of the Hilux. When Hugo shined the light outside the ground was moving. [...]

2017-07-25T17:14:48+02:00 July 17th, 2017|Categories: Africa, Trip Report, Uganda|

We had a slow morning and only left at 11:00 again. We retraced our route on the horrible ‘tar’ road back to the turn-off to Ishasha in the South. From the turn-off, it is a decent gravel road with only some corrugation towards the end. It’s a public road, but we still got to see [...]

We got up passed 08:00 to find that the overlanders have already left. We took our time to have breakfast and to pack up. D&S even went for a walk in the forest again and showered. At 11:00 we set off towards QENP on a proper tar road, with just some potholes here and there. [...]

We got up lazily and while the other’s went to make breakfast Hugo continued to sleep in our hammock between the trees. We had scrambled eggs with our last cheese and bacon for breakfast. We haven’t decided where to go next, but we wanted to go down through Queen Elizabeth National Park to Bwindi and [...]

We got up at 08:00 after the strange night a packed almost everything out of the vehicle and removed the things from the roof rack for the service. Hugo took the vehicle to Stitch and Sew at 09:00 and they could help him immediately. We still had an air-filter and fuel filter from South Africa, [...]

The receptionist at ViaVia told us the free ferry on the road from Entebbe to Kasanje leaves at 08:30 in the morning. We thus set an alarm for 06:30 in order to leave by 07:30. We actually managed to get up in time and pack up quickly, but only left the campsite at 07:50. We [...]

2017-07-16T21:07:33+02:00 July 11th, 2017|Categories: Africa, Trip Report, Uganda|

The Two Monkeys felt something odd in the morning, but couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Hugo got out and noticed what was wrong. Our first flat wheel in 5 monhts and 15 000km. We inflated the wheel a bit to fit the bottle jack and then put on the spare tyre. We could hear [...]
