Day 4: Bwindi – Kibale National Park
After breakfast, we drove through the rolling highlands of southwestern Uganda on our way to the beautiful green area of ??Fort Portal.
Traveling both on asphalt and unpaved roads, we pass through traditional Ugandan villages where people are seen working on their traditional crops of millet, sorghum, beans, bananas, corn, etc.
The lush terraces of this region offer good “photo opportunities”. As you approach Fort Portal in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains, enter the famous tea plantation region of Uganda.
A carpet of green grass stretches out before you, as far as the eye can see, and it seems an unusual contrast to the field you just passed through.
