Best moment: walking with wild white rhinos or coming face-to-face with a family of mountain gorillas. Two once in a lifetime experiences that were so special.
Worst moment: the five hour bus that turned into a ten hour journey to Kampala. Not fun.
Best spontaneous moment: following thousands of kids to a penalty shoot-out in Masindi.
Favourite place: though it was pretty challenging, I really liked the Sipi Falls trek – it was such beautiful scenery and a bit sense of achievement to reach the Falls.
Best thing eaten: the Ugandan invention of “rolexes” – a chapatti and omelette roll. Eaten for brekkie, as a snack, cheap as chips and delish!
Worst thing eaten: a very heavily peppered steak that nearly blew Mozza’s ears off.
Favourite person: Robina in Jinja, Luta, Lawrence, Rose and Mike in Sipi, the nice lady who paid for my wee at the border, Joseph the ranger at Ziwa, our new pals Claire and Richard and Steven the ranger in Bwindi.
