Uganda trip

Backyard, Cincinnati

Mara in Qinghai province of China, 2007

I will be flying to Entebbe on April 13, through Amsterdam, and arrive on the 14th. The plan is to give lectures arranged by Teach and Tour Sojourners (TATS,, and record the sounds of  wildlife while touring parks and reserves.

So far I know I’ll be spending time in Murchison Falls on the first weekend, and subsequently in some order, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park (gorilla tracking), Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale National Park, Lake Mburo National Park, Mt Elgon National Park, Rwenzori Mountains National Park, Ziwa Rhinos Reserve, Budongo forest, the source of the Nile River, islands in Lake Victoria, and Bigodi Swamp (bird sanctuary).

Lectures will be at several universities.

It’s a whirlwind trying to get ready for a complicated trip involving recording audio and video, safaris, and presenting new music and technologies to different groups.
