Are you a man or a mannequin? Hard to tell sometimes in Kampala where there seems to be more mannequins lining the streets than people. Perhaps that's why the guy on the left is "channeling" the mannequin behind him in the store. (Yet another shot I took from a moving car) . . . . #traveltheworld #travelafrica #africaphotography #streetphotos #streetscenes #kampala #travelmoments #travelhumor #traveller #traveler #instatravel #wanderlust #travelgram #streetphotography #ilovetravel #traveluganda #everydayafrica
A few weeks ago I spent some time in paradise. It was green and lush, made me feel young and fresh. . . It's here that I learnt of the hammock design history, boat design history and why it's never a good Idea go get onto the lake when it's about to rain. . . . . #traveleastafrica #boatdesign  #artisansofuganda #hammock #holidayinuganda #beautiful256 #beautifuluganda #userexperiencedesign #eugenekavumaphotography #traveluganda #uganda #nature #landscapedesign
Mount Sabinyo, Virunga Mountain Range | elevation 11,959 | 10.5 miles ...... Sometimes I wonder if my body is ever resentful that it got paired with my soul. My soul craves adventure and demanding environments. And my body has no option but to carry it through the fatigue, and extreme temperatures, and bruises, and fear. ... Today I did the second most physically demanding thing I think I've ever done. I hiked an inactive volcano. ... It all started with a 9 hour bus ride, 3.5 people in a seat meant for 2. The isle filled with standing passengers who couldn't get seats. It was the post bus so we stopped at the post offices along the way to deliver mail. But with the sheer number of people I couldn't get out. No bathroom breaks. Then a 2 hour car ride. 8 people and their luggage in a car meant for 4. ... The next morning I grabbed 645 bottles of water, downed a rolex, and made my way to the trailhead. The trail to Sabinyo has 3 peaks. It sits on the border so when you summit the 3rd and final peak you are standing in Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo all at the same time. The elevation and the fact that we are heading into the wet season meant pure cloud cover and hail. But the journey up was the real adventure. Many people don't make it all the way. It was grueling and definitely not one of the safest things I've ever done. But boy was it worth it. ... Shout out to Ranger Richard for accompanying me. He gave me a necessary mix of encouragement and tough love along the way. He does this 14 times a month so this was just a walk in the park for him (see what I did there). I on the other hand, had legitimate doubts I could continue before we even reached peak 1...but we all know I'm stubborn af so I told my legs to shut up and keep moving. ... Thank you, dear body, for putting up with me. Thank you, dear universe, for throwing me curveballs. And thank you, dear Uganda, for once again filling my heart with more gratitude than I think I can hold. #exploreonexplorealways
LA girls don’t go anywhere without their entourage. Hannah, a talented young actress, seems very pleased with hers. As my very impromptu interview with @hannah.dimas reveals (Disclaimer: the repeated use of the word "Wow!" is not endorsed in journalism school), these pint-sized stylists are all locals and fabulously talented. No doubt about it, when you volunteer to help others—in this instance at a community in Jinja, Uganda—you’ll attract lots of fans. Good job, Hannah. To join Hannah in making a difference in the lives of needy children, including becoming a child sponsor, check out @ugandabuyamba . . . . @hannah.dimas @ugandabuyamba @godcaresschoolsuganda #traveler #traveling #womentravel #humanitarianaid #travelwithapurpose #lovelookslikethis #volunteer #volunteeringabroad #travelafrica #traveluganda #dogood #lovelikejesus #traveluganda #travelmoments

Here's the animal I'm most afraid of on safaris. The boat tours always like to bring tourists close to them though πŸ˜”
I'm having corrective eye surgery tomorrow, so taking an IG break for a week. Gonna dump some safari photos before I go though... so here's a real common sight at Lake Mburo: Plains Zebra!
My first time seeing giraffes in the wild! Rothschild's Giraffes are considered "one of the most endangered giraffe populations" with less than 1,700 individuals in the world (source: Wikipedia). Murchison Falls in northern Uganda is one of a handful of places to see them, but 15 giraffes have just been reintroduced to Lake Mburo in the past few years (if my memory is correct?). The photo is not super sharp but I was so happy to see 6 of the 15 giraffes at a distance from the game road.
You've got to keep your eyes peeled in Uganda, because - well, birds - but also, these creatures! The Jackson's 3-horned chameleon is naturally found in humid, high altitude areas of East Africa, and the males possess the unique horns. They are beautiful and colourful and truly mesmerising to watch. This was a good pre-gorilla-trek treat found in the flowery garden of our camp  @karungifusion in Rubuguri Village with @footstepsthroughafrica.

#traveluganda #photography #outdoors  #adventure #adventurethatislife #pearlofafrica #lakekyoga #iloveuganda #discoveruganda #travelraw #ugandanpeople #exploring #uganda Okay, on my way back from Serere, I decided to cross Lake Kyoga using rather unconventional means. Theoretically I knew it was possible to cross Lake Kyoga right into Busoga Kingdom and straight for Kampala the capital saving me 4 hours of my trip if I had used conventional means. I had never tried this but was ready to give it a shot and here is a gallery of shots I took as I made it back to Kampala
A languid lake and leapin' lizards. It's part of my "backwards journey" to Uganda ... and beyond. Here I take a peaceful boat ride on Lake Victoria, the largest tropical lake in the world where hundreds of different types of birds make their home. Then I head over to a strange reptile village where I find myself over identifying with a lone chick survivor of a Monitor Lizard's carnage. Life in Uganda is raw. And I miss it.

Happy world elephant day! I took this photo a few years ago at Murchison Falls in northern Uganda, and I still distinctly remember hearing my heart beating in my chest as this bull elephant approached our van #vscocam #worldelephantday #blackandwhite #elephant #uganda #traveluganda #pearlofafrica #vsco
