Not our first Nile Monitor Lizard of the trip to Uganda in August…we saw one from the boat on the actual Nile in Murchinson Falls National Park earlier, but we were on foot for this one…beside the Kazinga Channel in the northern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Sacred Ibis: Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — We left the northern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park shortly after lunch for the, shall we say, “brutal” drive to the southern sector, or Ishasha as it is known. It is a long dive on a dirt road that way too many big trucks headed to or from far western Uganda use, it is always in desperate need of grading, and we are always in just a bit too much of a hurry to get to our lodge and what the Ishasha sector has to offer…from Topi to tree-climbing lions. We stopped at a small pond along the way to look for water birds and were rewarded with this somewhat bedraggled Scared Ibis…maybe not feeling quite so sacred at the moment.
