Our ‘freezer’ arrived while we were at Bwindi and from there we set out together through the forest towards the south.  It’s one of those roads you see on a map that looks like a bad case of varicose veins, and those are the roads we are looking for!! We stopped for boiled egg picnics, some bird watching and picture taking – all in all a wonderful day!

  8. Back in 2004 we got a special group price of 100$ (usd) to enter the gorilla sanctuary from the DRC (Near Bukavu). You could also enter from Rwanda and Uganda. However, sad to say but I thought I would get another change and then our demolition team moved to the Western DRC (Mbandaka) Don’t know how they got to this ridiculous 500$, possibly an ‘American mastermind’ behind it….However, I just love your blog!
