    Oh Beautiful Uganda I fell in love with you and I want to return, I will someday.

  3. Ben Wheeler says:

    Beautiful photos. Keep them coming. Visual intelligence trumps all, although your fine blog postings make a good case for literary intelligence. Love, from uncle ben.

  4. Max says:

    excellent work, I can see you been to more corners of Uganda than most ugandans have ever tried in their entire life spans.

    keep up the good positive work… will try and keep up with your adventures.

    Hi Mark,
    Just happened across your site/blog when browsing. My husband moved to Kampala a week ago, we are to join him in due course so I was searching for pics of the country…… LOVE your photos.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Mark, I’m ‘from’ Ntinda in Kla but I’m back in the UK now. My sister and her family (hubby, 6 kids) will be travelling to Ug in July for a safari with Red Chili. Sister grew up in UK and husband is Dominican and has never ben to Ug, same deal with kids. Would it be too much for them to link up with you for one afternoon when they get to Kla so that you can give the details of the place/make them feel welcome?

    These bring back great memories! Nice job on the photography!

  13. Antoine S. says:

    Great photographs! It’s just amazing how you capture those natural images. Feels good to actually take part on what is going on in the wild. Also, definitely a great place to visit. Simply amazing!

  14. Andrea says:

    Beautiful pictures. The photos look lively and vivid. You did a good job with the angles and lightings too.

    • Adi says:

      Glad you made it home safely, Charles! It is not an easy psorecs to get in to see the sites. Letter to the Permanent Secretary and the Commissioner of the Petroleum Exploration and Production Department to get written permission which then goes to Tullow for them to make arrangements for a visit. Haven’t yet tried the psorecs myself, but it might be an interesting blog post in itself!

  18. Jeff Geidt says:

    These are the kinds of photos that make you want to travel to different places and in this case, the beauty of Uganda could have never been more emphasized. Good job!

    These are Beautiful, I am now dyeing to visit Kidepo valley…..Thanks to your amazing eyes

  20. carol ferns says:

    Hi Mark, im coming to Uganda as part of a group to volunteer within a childrens orphanage and help with a building project, im from Scotland, can you give me any tips?? im so excited but quite nervous also as ive only been abroad once and that was to Malta so quite different.

    • Hi Carol,

      You couldn’t have picked a better country to stretch your comfort zone. Ugandans are some of the friendliest, most welcoming people on earth. Also, it helps that it is an English speaking country, so unless you are way out in a rural area, it is easy to get around just speaking English.

      Feel free to send me an e-mail at and let me know what you are interested in tips about – where to go, how to get around, what to bring, etc.

      You are going to love Uganda!


  21. Mark,

    Just a big thank you for your efforts to deliver Uganda to the world. I agree with you in many ways; its such a beautiful country that has been known for the wrong reasons all this long. Its amazingly stunning – the wonderful people, the startling history and rich culture.

    Oh I love my country! and this time its not from me but all said by you (Mark)

    Let them come see and feel Uganda.
