BAR HARBOR — Join Leslie Clapp and Blaise deSibour as they speak about and share photographs from their safari trip through South Africa, well as their visits to Uganda and Rwanda, at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 at the Jesup Memorial Library, 34 Mt. Desert Street.

In South Africa, Clapp and deSibour crossed the country. They began with Western Cape’s Cederberg Mountains, and the famous Garden Route, which begins on Western Cape’s Mossel Bay and ends Eastern Cape’s Storms River Mouth. From there they visited the Cape of Good Hope before heading east to Blyde River Canyon, Kruger National Park and the lush Drakensberg Mountains. They then left South Africa’s rugged coastline and semi-desert interior for Uganda’s equatorial forests and the Nile River. They also will show pictures of their many animal encounters including the bizarre Shoebill stork, endangered Mountain Gorillas and countless big cats.
