Uganda does not have the game reserves filled with animals as you will find them in Tanzania, Kenia, Zambia or Botswana.
However, there are a few areas where the game is returning slowly.

Here a few pictures of what we found:


Bush elephant (smaller than African Elephant, aggressive and almost black):

Tree lion:



The abundant Uganda Cob:

Bush baby

This one I should have added in the OP:

A bush baby, shot at ISO 6400, 153mm, 1/13 sec. f 4.0, manual focus.
The bush baby was one of four that were fed at a lodge.
They used small red led lights to iluminate them.

I cleaned up the noise somewhat with LR3.
