Various 7th edition corrections

Ever since 2003 when I started to work in Uganda I have used the Bradt guide for the trips we made in Uganda. I advised the guide to all our friends who came to visit us. I have always been impressed by the accuracy of the guide but I also understand that it cannot always be perfect and that is the reason that I am drawing your attention to some errors.

On page 373 at the start of Chapter 10 there is a picture of the map of Borneo(Serawak) instead of a thumbnail of Murchison Park



Fort Portal: On page 344 Ruwenzori Guesthouse is wrongly located in C1 where it should in section B1



On page 305 you mention Abbey guesthouse in Rugazi. This guesthouse seems less suitable for tourists since it happens to be a hotel where you rent the rooms per hour. They were nevertheless very friendly and showed us 2 very good alternatives:

1 Priume Palace,a community centre with 4 selfcontained rooms for 50.000 UgX

2 Cave Nyakasharu Eco Lodge run by “Dave the Cave”.  

Both are in Nyakasharu ( Rubirizi) less than 1 Km from Abbey Guesthouse on your left coming from QENP. From here it is worthwhile to visit the nearby Nzuguto Wetlands known for many swamp birds including the Papyrus Gonolek and the Red headed lovebird. (Sunday can show you the way; tel; 0700142590)



On page 228 Rwaboko Lodge should be Rwakobo



On page 268 and 269 you mention Lake Mutolere. That should be Lake Mulehe. Since 2003 I have worked in Mutolere Hospital and  I can asure you that there is no Lake Mutolere. On page 270 Mutolere is mentioned as a tradingcentre. It is also the name of a Parish and a Hospital at the same location.
