In July I had two weeks in Western Uganda with my non-birding spouse and 
mother-in-law (one has to compromise if you are going to be allowed these 
trips). My main aim was to see Chimpanzees and Gorillas which was achieved 
beyond my wildest dreams but we also saw over 350 birds (including shoe-bill 
twice) which was great considering it was "..not a birding trip" and there were 
a few days where no new birds were seen at all as we dealt with non-birding 
matters and interests.  A fantastic country, with lovely people and incredible 
scenery.  Very safe, secure, cheap and in all respects to be recommended if you 
have these sorts of interests.  Just do not mention Ebola.

Our travels took us to places including Murchison Falls, Victorian Nile, Albert 
Nile, Kibale (for chimps), Similiki Forest, Lake Albert, Lake Edward, Lake 
George, Lake Victoria, Kazingi Channel, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Bwindi 
Inpenetratable Forest, Buhoma, Ruwiza (for Gorillas), Lake Mburo and Mabamba.

Anyone with plans or thoughts to go to Uganda and who would like to contact me 
please feel free to do so if I can be any assistance.
