Dag 40 Kazinga kanaal Uganda

Ry af in die skeurvallei na die QE Nat Park. Sien die Uganda cob, lyk amper soos die rooibok, net groter. Ry ook na Lake George wat met Lake Edward deur middel van die kazinga kanaal verbind word. Die plaaslike vissermense vang vis tussen die seekoeie. Ons maak ‘n boskamp met geen geriewe langs die kazinga kanaal. Maar ons is in ons element, net die seekoeie, olifante wat om ons wei, visarende wat aanmekaar roep. Om te stort is eenvoudig, werk baie soos by die huis- bo is die geyser (ketel met water, warm gemaak op vuur, vasgehou deur’ n belangstellende eggenoot), een derde vir natmaak, dan seep, ‘n derde vir afspoel en die laaste derde vir genot)

Maak vuurtjie, die son sak, die maan begin helder skyn en om ons net die bosgeluide.

Driving down into the Rift Valley to the Queen Elizabeth National Park, we see the Uganda cob, which looks like the rooibok, only slightly bigger. We set off to Lake George which is linked to Lake Edward by the Kazinga Channel. The local fishers catch fish in amongst the hippos.

We set up a bush camp without any amenities next to the channel. But we are perfectly at home; the hippos and grazing elephants are our companions as we listen to the call of the fish eagles. To shower is easy and the principle is almost like at home. The geyser is above you (kettle with water heated on the fire), held by an interested spouse. One third of the water is used to get the body wet and soapy, one third for rinsing and the last third just for fun.

We light a fire, the sun sets, the moon shines brightly and we are enveloped in the sounds of the bush.
