Return to Lake Mburo!

Checked out of the Agip Friday morning and will give them a good review on Tripadvisor.

We visited Lake Mburo many times when we lived here.

Mushabe could not come so we invited Evaristo to come along with Doreen and mum, Eva.

We spent the night in bedded tents and went on an early morning game walk. After a big, delicious breakfast at Arcadia Cottages we drove to Sanga on the main road, picked up Mushabe who met us there by public transport, and sent Eva and Evaristo back to Mbarara on public transport. We are heading in the opposite direction to Kampala.

We enjoyed listening to the crickets and animal noises while going to sleep.  This time we had flushing toilets and warm showers in the outdoor facilities.

A few of the animals we spotted: impala, waterbuck, zebra, hippo, vervet monkey, baboon, warthog, lots of cape buffalo.

On the game walk we had a somewhat nervous few minutes when several of the buffalo in a big herd starting walking toward us.  The ranger frightened them off by clapping. Got a lot of great shots on my camera but none by phone camera.
