A smooth journey to Uganda!

 Its been a long journey, we set off from Braintree at 3pm on Tuesday. 13 intrepid travellers boarded the bus to Gatwick along with a few loved ones. Having zipped through the journey we unloaded and made our way into the airport to catch our first plane to Dubai departing at 9:20pm. 
We were on the big double decker Airbus which was huge! The flight was very smooth and we safely arrived in Dubai at 7:20am and there were some of us who even managed to get some sleep! We had a quick 2 hour layover in Dubai and then boarded the 9:20am flight to Entebbe, Uganda. This was a smaller older plane but all went smoothly once again and we arrived at Entebbe at 1:20pm. 

There was a huge queue to get through passport control where also had to buy a visa but they took pity on us when they saw Jess and told us it wasn’t right that we should wait and jumped us to the front of the queue. Bonus!! 🙂 

Having got through there and picked up our bags we met our Watoto guide with a bus and journeyed through to our Guest House in Kampala which took an hour or so! 

The Guest House is amazing with simple comfortable rooms and food that was amazing!! There haven’t been too many bugs so far apart from a bit of fun with a couple of lizards but we wait to see what tomorrow holds!! It’s early to bed now so we are faring to go in the morning!
