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.
Deep in the Kidepo Valley
Deep in the Kidepo Valley some 27 miles from the South Sudanese border, I was treated to a very special birthday party by the staff of Wildplaces Africa Apoka Safari Lodge.
Kidepo National Park
I went out alone on a game drive with guide David this morning. We were bouncing along through the bush looking for an illusive and shy male lion deep in Kidepo National Park.
The village of Lorukul
This morning just before sunrise Charley Fisher and I continued Phase Three of Great African Expedition with guide Julius from Wildplaces Africa’s Apoka Lodge, and Daniel the ranger from the Uganda Wildlife Authority’s Kidepo Valley National Park.
