Chimp’s Nest, Uganda

That's the name of the rather cool place I stayed while visiting Kibale National Park in western Uganda.

For example, here's a photo of one of their rather famous tree houses (at least if you read Lonely Planet). When up there you are eye level with lots of monkeys, which is a unique experience for most people, including me.

Or, if heights and looking monkeys in the eye is not your fancy, then this is an over-the-jungle-stream cabin that's just for you.

Sure there were chimpanzees in the area, but a walk on the roads leading from (or to) the jungle showed me some lively people living there on the jungle's edge.

(Birds are people too)And so, perhaps, are the many strange plants that congregate to make a jungle community.


About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."


The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.


The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
