UC Davis Professor James R. Carey presents photographic, video, audio and scientific content of the sights and sounds of wildlife, people and places that he and his wife experienced recently while traveling in three African countries. This includes material from their 2,000 mile road trip in Uganda (2014) to see the critically-endangered mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the Batwa Pigmys in Mgahinga National Park, chimpanzees at the Budongo Field Station and wildlife in Murchison Falls National Park. Their 1,800 mile road trip around Namibia (2015) included safaris in Etosha National Park, an overland expedition to see the desert elephants in Twyfelfontein, a drive along the Skeleton Coast, a walk through the world's largest fur seal colony at Cape Cross, an adventure among swimming seals in Walvis Bay, tours through Himba and Damara tribal villages, and a trek along the crest of the world's 2nd highest sand dune (Sossusvlei's Big Daddy).
