Entebbe Airport Guest House

Uganda, 2013


A break from South Sudan for me, a holiday for Angharad, and a chance for us both to spend some time together, right down by the Equator! Uganda is wonderful. Go and meet it. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

One of the many basically unspoilt 1920s (and thereabouts) buildings that make up Entebbe's fascinating architecture.

Arrived in Africa!

I had a few hours to enjoy the abundance of birdlife in the grounds of the Airport Lodge in Entebbe, before Angharad's flight got in. It's a really friendly place I'd not hesitate to recommend. Once she arrived, it really felt like a proper African adventure was beginning...

What's she got there?

That just is cricket!

Early on, the urge was to photograph everything. Uganda was just so lush, so beautiful.

Well, you know, everybody wants to change the world...

Edifying.

Note, that's edifying, not edible.

Our first big game!

This is in Entebbe's "Wildlife Education Centre". It's not just a zoo. Most of the creatures here have been rescued at the airport from where they were being illegally exported. Others are orphans.

Everywhere you look

We loved the presentation at the Wildlife Education Centre, which had lots of places to look into good sized enclosures.
