Following yesterday's posting I thought I would also introduce another good friend and 'experienced' Explore customer - Sheila Simkin. Sheila publishes the blog -
Travels with Sheila
where she posts about trips taken with different tour operators (including lots with Explore) and those organised independently. Sheila is based in the US and generally writes from an American perspective however the travel writing gives you an excellent flavour of places, people and what to look out for.
Always worth a read but particularly interesting series of posts on Uganda and Rwanda at the moment - I particularly liked this posting on Mburo
as it shows Ankole cattle (one of my favourite aniumals - don't know why!) and a shot of Boda - Bodas:
A "boda-boda" is either a motorcycle or bicycle used to carry passengers...similar to taxis and also used to haul goods on the back of them.
Sheila has suggested that this was one of her most inspiring trips and I can certainly see the attraction of Uganda from a wildlife and cultural perspective. Maybe next year...
