Joel Hartter, assistant professor of geography, traveled to western Uganda in summer 2011 to visit the communities outside Kibale National Park. He recently reported on his trip:

“Kibale is not the typical national park when you think of Africa. Most people I know think of the vast savannah landscapes, such as the Serengeti – big open grassland expanses with few trees teaming with wildlife. They think of hot, dry days, with the lions and antelope seeking refuge in what little shade they can find, while elephants and hippos try to keep themselves cool near the water.  Kibale is very different from that picture.”
