Experience Uganda with a Lonely Planet blogger & connoisseur of local gin: cultural (mis)observations, trips to the Bush, birds. Initially a VSO volunteer with the Uganda conservation foundation, now a would-be travel writer, I love U.G. :) I want to travel across Africa - by public transport? with my dogs? who knows? New for 2013, I've developed a souvenir photo map of Uganda, that I can customise with your favourite safari photographs. Ideal for leaving presents, birthday presents, or just a nice memento for yourself! They are proving very popular, so please check out my blog for more information or become a fan of Diary of a Muzungu on Facebook or Twitter @CharlieBeau. Thanks for reading!

A wedding fit for a King  Posted on 05/18/2013
