Journeys in Our Disappearing World

The Last Places on Earth  

Uganda Summer 2008

Photo gallery of Bwindi Forest National Park and from other places I traveled to while in Uganda. My main goal in visiting Uganda was to see the large primates that Uganda is famous for. This of course is includes approximately half the world's remaining mountain gorillas. These live in the mountains of the Bwindi area which is near the borders with Rwanda and Democratic Republic of the Congo. I found Uganda overall to be a very interesting, if somewhat challenging, place to travel. Read my story about my travels in Uganda, Uganda: Gorillas, Pickpockets and Suffering in Silence
