Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Car Rental in the Seychelles

When you visit the Seychelles, odds are good your first thought is not about driving logistics- it's about the famous Seychelles beaches!

But when you come down to reality, you quickly realize that if you want to hit all of the beaches, exploring the islands via some sort of transportation will be required.

Unlike other posts in this series, where we are able to capture regional driving tips and advice in one spot, in this one we have to break it up as driving on Mahe and Praslin are two slightly different experiences.

9 Animals We Spotted in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda

When you go on a safari in Africa, odds are good you're going to have a favorite spot. That one park that stands out as being leaps and bounds better than the rest.

This is not because the park is actually a better spot, but rather that your experience in the park is the best based on the luck of your itinerary, weather, and chance animal viewings.

In Namibia, ours was Etosha National Park. In Botswana, ours was the Okavango Delta. And on our Uganda safari, ours was Murchison Falls National Park.

While we still did not see the big five (we have never seen a leopard anywhere), we came close, and our animal viewing experience was one of the best we've ever had. Today we wanted to share some of our favorite shots of the beautiful creatures we saw!

Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is a Must Visit in Uganda

As far as Africa safaris are concerned, Uganda one of our favorite trips to date. 

This was not just because we went chimpanzee and gorilla trekking in Uganda, but also because of the other wildlife viewing opportunities at places like Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison Falls National Park.

But out of all of the animals we spotted during our travels around the country, one was favorite was missing: the rhino.

This is because Uganda no longer has any rhinos remaining in the wild, as poaching and other activities rendered them extinct in the country. But conservation efforts are underway to bring their population back, and for those wanting to help out and see these beautiful creatures, you simply must visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary.
