About Great Africa
Approaching twenty years of exploration on the African continent – leading expeditions from coast to coast, north to south and east to west – American Anthropologist and modern day explorer Julian Monroe Fisher decided to set out upon a journey retracing the overland routes of the Victorian age explorers across Africa.
The expedition will have him retracing the African expeditionary routes of the famed Victorian explorers including Baker, de Brazza, Speke, Grant, Burton, Baumann, Wissman, Livingstone and Stanley.
Charley Fisher and I finished hiking the Sir Samuel and Lady Florence Baker Historical Trail when we arrived together at the top of Murchison Falls in northwestern Uganda today.
Fishing on the Nile
Charley Fisher and I continued Phase Three of The Great African Expedition today on the River Nile. We were guided by ‘Itchy’ to several fishing holes near Murchison Falls.
The sounds of hippos
Following Charley’s arrival in Entebbe we hired a local Kampala taxi driver named Omar. From the get go he was not a happy camper because the deal he struck was for 100,000 Ugsh (about $40 per day).
