Musician cum entrepreneur, Aliaune Akon Thiam alias Akon on Sunday completed his two-day excursion in which he interfaced with the Pearl of Africa has to offer in terms of natural endowment.

Having first visited Queen Elizabeth National Park, Akon together with wife, Rozina Negusei completed the excursion with a visit to the Bwindi Impenetrable forest national park, known for gorillas.

Donning Uganda Cranes jerseys, Akon and wife enjoyed the tracking but were on several occasions seen panting, courtesy of the jungles they went through.

Despite hiking on a muddy day, Akon was amazed by the rare opportunity he got to get an up-close and personal shot with the Gorillas, he excitedly referred to himself as “the papa of Gorillas” after his wife Rozina Negussei wished she could adopt the baby Gorilla she had seen.

At the end of the tracking exercise, the singer couldn’t agree more with Winston Churchill’s definition of Uganda as the Pearl of Africa.

“This experience was amazing. With all that is going on around the world with the pandemic getting a chance to get into nature, air it all out and escape from the madness just to see our cousins is an experience like no other,” Akon said.
