Category: Lake Victoria

With the boat only a few inches above water, two fisherman attempt to catch Nile perch and tilapia in Lake Victoria.

It is hard for me to believe that it has been 10 years since my first trip to East Africa and Uganda in particular. At the time I was contemplating going back to school to become a veterinarian and my time at Ngamba Island solidified this for me. To come back to Uganda as such and to help teach fellow veterinarians about great ape medicine was a very rewarding and reflective experience for me.  Over the next few weeks I will post some of my photos and experiences from my most recent trip.  I took this photo of the captain of our boat heading back across Lake Victoria after a day at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary.
