Fortunately, Kirky got away on the trek to H group. So we began to formulate our plans over a long breakfast down the road - omelette, chapatti, banana. We changed our plans from Ssese Islands to Queen Elizabeth National Park after Cathy got a tour quote. Cooch and Marty did the walk to Congo. We waited around for our driver before heading off about 5.30 pm. It was a nice evening drive up Congo border through tea, coffee, banana plantations, villages. Our group of ten (including Scot girls) ate at a seedy village restaurant before driving into the park and organising our lodges.
