Murchison falls

Uganda, the great pearl of Africa has had the privilege of currently hosting Kanye and Kim Kardashian, one of the world’s most famous couple. The couple, with older daughter North, are said to have set base in Uganda’s top notch luxurious safari lodge, Chobe Safari lodge in Murchison falls National Park, Uganda’s oldest National Park that is home to the world’s most powerful waterfalls. Kim and Kanye are said to be enjoying and basking in the beauty and freshness of the untamed wild as they explore the beauty of the Uganda. We hope they get to see the Mountain Gorillas too!

Kanye is said to be working on his new album and as he mentioned, he wanted to draw inspiration from his roots on African soil. Well, this world’s celebrity could have drawn inspiration from anywhere else on the African soil for his new album but he chose the pearl of Africa and why are we not surprised? Well, because we know firsthand what the beauty of the great pearl of Africa can do for one’s mind. So, with that we would like to wish Kanye and family, an awesome stay here in Uganda, the pearl of Africa!

Chimpanzee

Uganda’s oldest Chimpanzee, “Zakayo” has died at the age of 54 years on 26th April 2018. This dearly loved chimpanzee was found abandoned in Semliki by an unknown individual ( who is said to be a “white man” ) in June 1964 who kept Zakayo under his care until 19th June when he handed him to the care of Uganda wildlife Education center, an organization that was founded for the purpose of wildlife conservation and cares for rescued animals that are often victims of bushmeat trade, habitat destruction and illegal trade.

Zakayo was one of these many animals and has been under the care of Uganda wildlife education center from the age of 4 up until his death on Thursday 26th April 2018. The typical lifespan of a chimpanzee in the wild is 40-50 years and under captivity it’s 50-60 years. Zakayo has lived up to his 54th and we at Simba Africa Expeditions, would like to take time and recognize the life of this great chimpanzee, that has been Uganda’s over all oldest Chimpanzees.
