Day 2: Murchison falls
We are out in the jungle early before the crack of dawn in search of the big elusive cats in an open safari vehicle. With the skilful eyes of your guide, you are likely to spot the Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Giraffe, Elephant, Oribi and Hartebeest just to mention a few.
Following your lunch at the lodge, we shall go for a cruise on the Nile waters to view the gigantic Nile crocodiles (which are the biggest in the world), Hippos cooling off from the heat as well as Buffalos and Elephants (which can be seen at the river banks) and a stunning array of charming birds dotting our skies as we sail to the base of the Murchison Falls.
For greater action, we stop at the base of Murchison and take a guided 30 minute hike to the top of the falls. In addition to the amazing scenery, you will also be able to view Uhuru Falls. You will be in awe while viewing glorious Murchison Falls which has the most powerful water surge in the world!
