Trekking and Climbing in Uganda

Uganda is very much a walkers’ destination. Whether it’s the forested foothills of Bwindi, the volcanic highlands with their stunning crater lakes, or the wild and beautiful Rwenzori Mountains, the country’s landscapes beg – and very often demand! – that they be explored on foot.

Expedition into the Rwenzori Mountains

It was a great adventure and very tough! [But] if it were easy, every Tom, Dick and Harry would be there!

Northern and Southern Tanzania Safari

Ruaha was the highlight of Tanzania - I'm so glad I went. It might now be my favorite place in Africa.
