2,657 km in 17 days. After a short stop on the Eastern shore of Lake Victoria we drive up to the Bunyoni Lake in the south, whereby the slope already presents us with challenges in the form of land slides as we approach it. The mystical canoe trip across the lake in the morning makes up for all the effort. In the Mgahinga NP, close to the Rwanda and Congo border, we visit a gorilla family in the jungle and experience one of the greatest highlights of our trip, which also touches us emotionally very much. On the drive north we cross the enchanting Bwindi NP and the Queen Elizabeth NP. In the Rwenzori Mountains we go on another hike, but we get soaking wet – no wonder, as this is an area with the most rainfall in Africa. Over the Murchinson Falls NP, the Karuma Falls and the Victoria Nile we head towards Kidepo NP, which is wild and lonely – exactly to our taste. At the Sisiyi Falls we experience a lot of mud again, from which we can luckily free ourselves again.
