Just after we had our breakfast we were told there was another group of Rhinos around the restaurant and not to make too much noise! By the time we were ready to leave they were gone, or so we thought... Four of them were having a nap in the middle of the road on our way to the exit of the sanctuary. Padraig nudged the van forward and they reluctantly got out of the way...
We had decided to abandon our thoughts of going to Rwanda etc. There just isn't enough time. Instead, we headed for Kampala. This was the main road from Masindi to Kampala and was tarmac. Not too many potholes either. Sheer bliss!
Kampala itself is another story altogether! Thank God for sat nav and the size of the truck! Cars and motorbikes everywhere, matt us and pedestrians in between. Scary! But we made it. The last 200 meters were a bit of a challenge, to say the least, but once we were inside the gates it was great! A nice spot to park, a camper's kitchen with cooker and fridge, a swimming pool, a bar, a restaurant, a real pizza oven and laundry facilities to boot. And very reasonably priced as well. The WiFi allowed me to sit by the pool and update the blog, while himself was having a swim. Great stuff!
