What to enjoy during this safari.
Hike to Murchison Falls
Hiking top of the falls is one of the exciting and extremely interesting activities in Murchison falls national park. It involves an active adventure trek through the narrow footpaths along the strong impermeable rocks that have stood in the course of Nile River for Centuries past only allowing it less than 7metres ravine.
The falls squeeze in the 8 meter gap as it tries to pass through the rocks and crashes through the narrow gorge with extra ordinary power, thus called the strongest falls in the world. At this point expect to get a bit wet especially when the fresh waters splash all over you, direct view of the rainbow, the thunderous echoes and water hits, Surely, very exciting to see.
Game drive in search of the big 5
Often times while on our way to the park, a stop over is made at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to have a glimpse of one of the big 5, the Rhinos, because it is the only gazetted area where rhinos are kept.
The remaining of the big 5, seen during a game drive in an open roof 4 by 4 wheel drive, most commonly Jeep used.
Boat cruise along the Nile River
Drift gently down the Nile, discovering wildlife on the riverbanks during a sunset cruise. Or, work your way upstream to see the powerful Murchison Falls up.
The boat sails through a number of hippo schools floating on water, herds of elephants showering on the river bank, a couple of shoe bills, flocks of warthogs, crocodiles and beautiful water birds. It is so calming to ride in a midst of the real beauty of the Nile.
