It’s all about the price tag…

Just take a load of dollars and even more patience

The advice given to me by my Uganda contact when I asked him just how we are going to cross the Rwanda/Uganda border. Apparently, a fist full of Benjamin Franklins is the way forward (literally), but we must make sure they are notes from after 2006. Clearly Ugandans also love that little feeling you get when a crisp new note comes out of the cash machine. Our destination, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. We have secured permits to track the Kyaguriro group of Mountain Gorillas, a family group which make up a handful of the 790 Mountain Gorillas left in the world today. Slight issue…the permits are being held in the Ugandan capital Kampala. I live in Clapham.
