“Mzungu'” impressions of Kenya & Uganda

 City life

                       Colourful     Noisy   Chaotic     Active   A L I V E


    cars hooting  |  traders calling  |  people laughing  |  music playing  |  Africa living


 ANIMALS    Posing       Feeding        Lazing          Grazing         Curious      Regal      Comical          Majestic





Life is lived out on the side of the road.

babies watching  |  scholars walking  |  trees shading  |   workers resting   |  hawkers calling|  women toiling

Nomad Gorilla and Masaai Mara trip. I made it back alive

I’m back. 

Tired, dirty, happy, disorganised and suffering from acute post holiday blues.


I wish I was  still  in East Africa.

I really liked Kenya but I fell in love with Uganda.

I miss the simplicity of truck life & all my new friends.

I discovered the joy of birds in all their contrasting colours.

I have a million stories in my head but I am too tired to write them just yet.

So please wait, the stories and pics will come once normal life resumes.( I really can’t say when that will be)

For the curious who just can’t wait:


YES, I did see gorillas, one large teeth baring mommy even charged me.

YES, I stood on the Equator and beamed like a crazy person.

YES, I saw a gazillion giraffe, some of them no more than 3 months old.

YES, I survived the toilets of East Africa

and sadly….

YES, my padlocked, shrinkwrapped bag arrived in Cape Town minus the shrink wrap and padlock, my Garmin GPS, my GoPro and various leads, attachments and gadgets.

Luckily my souvenirs and gifts were untouched.

So far, SAA have been helpful, lets see how this nasty end to a fantastic trip unfolds.

I had the time of my life in spite of being up before 5am most mornings.

And now, I need a post trip nap, goodnight, I’m off to bed at 17.50pm
