Trip Report Petra and Mountain Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda

Jump to last reply

Recently came back from a whirlwind trip that had us in Jordan and visiting with the mountain gorillas on both sides of the border.

In Jordan we visited Petra and Dana Nature Reserve. Then we went on to track the Nkuringo group in Uganda and Group 13 in Rwanda. Fantastic stuff.

I've posted some of the better photos and trip notes on my site. It can be rambling at times. And maybe the jokes aren't that funny, but hopefully it might be helpful and interesting to some!

If you want to read about top to bottom about the trip:

Any questions or comments, please let me know! I always find the trip reports here incredibly useful in my planning/dreaming. Cheerio.

p.s. this trip ended in Kyoto, Japan...but I'm still working on that final portion of the report. Did I mention this was a bit whirlwind?
