Weekly Photo Challenge : ROY G BIV (in Uganda)

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “ROY G. BIV.”

Our Easter trip to Uganda provided the full spectrum of colours as we travelled through the towns. The buildings were all brightly painted and in so doing became advertising hoardings for a variety of companies – you can see more here

In Jinja we came across multi-coloured buildings with a rainbow of shades

 

Uganda Retrospective: Murchison Falls Game Park

Our two day Safari in Murchison Falls Game Reserve gave us a different experience to Serengeti and Ngorogoro back in October. Here are a selection of the best.

Uganda Retrospective: Sipi Falls

The original post contained some great pictures from the phone but the camera photos add so much more – so here they are. The three main falls were part of a 3 hour guided walk through the coffee fields, banana groves and villages of Sipi. We even encountered the alien looking wild banana plant – the inedible ancestor of all modern bananas.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Water in Motion

Here is a submission to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

Waterfalls are amazing sites of nature. In Uganda we were able to visit both Sipi Falls and Murchison Falls.

 Murchison Falls

The Nile river flows into the Rift Valley through a gap of a few  metres wide creating dramatic motion.

 SIPI FALLS

Sipi Falls is actually three separate water falls collecting water from Mount Elgon – the water will eventually flow into the Nile. We walked from the 2nd to the 3rd and back to the 1st. The last fall on our walk was the most dramatic.

Ugandan Birds

Uganda has some amazing wildlife. Some is similar to Tanzania, others are very different. Here is a selection which also includes two from Bukoba (Tz) but near to the Ugandan border.
