I had the fortune to travel through three East African nations on my most recent safari - Tanzania, Rwanda, and Uganda. If you've been following my Facebook page you've seen my postings of photographs of gorillas and chimpanzees taken on treks in Uganda. My earliest posting of photographs from that trip was from Tanzania. As a break from seeing photographs of animals (of which I still have many to share), I thought I would give you a glimpse into the life of the people from those countries. We drove through towns, not big cities, to get to our destinations. People everywhere go about their daily lives taking care of their families, going to the market, herding animals and talking with friends. Not having the privilege of spending time in these towns, I could only capture scenes of this activity from the safari vehicle as we went from place to place. I particularly enjoyed seeing women dressed in kanga fabric clothing. So colorful and bright you couldn't help but notice them regardless of the activity they were engaged in.
All of the images below were taken while driving through Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did taking them.
