Uganda, A look at the Country, Habitats, the People and the Wildlife, RSPB Talk

Loughborough University, 7:45pm, Friday 13th December

Nigel Slater made the trip to Uganda in 2008 when he turned 50. He went to Africa to hide from everyone.  He contacted an independent provider in Uganda who would drive him round his own itinerary that he'd researched so that he could see the real Africa. This is the story of his trip including his search for gorillas and shoebills.

The talk is held in a tiered lecture theatre, U020, in the Brockington Building within the Loughborough University campus.  There is ample free parking outside the building.

The cost is 4:00 for non-members and 3:50 for group members. Further details can be found by clicking here.
