Uganda Map

The drive between Ishasha and Lake Mburo took us through some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. OK it didn't quite match Switzerland (no mountains) but it reminded me of Switzerland a lot; the same vertical fields, houses perched in seemingly impossible places, and mind-boggling scale.

At one point the road runs diagonally down one side of a valley, across the little River Birira in the bottom and then all the way up the other side. We stopped here for lunch, partly because our driver had to strip down the front wheel assembly to clear a stone that had got behind the brake disc, which allowed me to take a few photos that weren't snatched out of the window of our vehicle.
