We left Bwindi National Park in the early morning of November 20th and driving south had wonderful views looking through the rising mist onto the rainforest and as it abruptly ended onto the steep slopes full of fields and eucalyotus trees. Outside the National Parks hardly any naturally grown plants seem to grow. Maybe the transient visitor fails to judge correctly but it seems that Uganda is forced to cultivate every acre due to the needs of an ever growing population. And who should criticize this ...

On the mostly hily road on our 270 km to Lake Mburo we passed Kabale. Kabale is a town in southwestern Uganda of some 30.000 inhabitants. It lies on 1800 m surrounded by even higher mountains. Here You can watch many bicycle taxis.

When You leave the Mbarara-Masaka-Road at Akageti after 260 km the dirt road begins. It leads through more and more cattle breeeding country. As the fenceless borders of the Lake Mburo NP are not far there is wildlife to be seen such as antelopes, zebras and topi. The view on the last picture of this gallery offers a foretaste of the game in the park.
