After breakfast from your hotel in Masindi, proceed to the Murchison Falls National Park . After clearance at the park gate, you are ushered into the Murchison by a congress of playfull anticipating baboons in the road.
They graple about in anticipation as some shy away into the thick Budongo Forest. This is the start of some great picture moments. Continue the drive as you savor the beautiful grassy landscape to the start of the hike to the top of the Murchison Falls. At the top you are treated to the breathtaking sight of the Falls. About 300 – 400 cubic meters per second of Nile waters force through a tiny gorge of about 7 meters to plunge into a violent tempest about 42 meters below. It is such a beautiful sight. Incredible picture moments here.
After proceed to catch the 2.30pm Launch Cruise on River Nile (Victoria Nile). This is the biggest highlight of any Murchison Falls Safari This relaxing ride of about 3 hours treats you to such beautiful wildlife sightings. There are lots of water animals like the hippos and Nile crocodiles. Lots of other animals come to the river to drink water, cool off the scorching heat and for others to eat fresh grass along the banks. Expect sightings of elephants, buffalos, antelops and a coctail of birds including among others kingfisher, herons, and fish eagles, viewing crocodiles, the many hippos along the bank and in the river, the birds, monkeys, buffaloes, elephants and so much more and of course the bottom of the falls. Birds on the boat include the Goliath Herons, Occasional Shoe Billed Stork, Great White Egret, African Skimmer, Red throated bee eater and Pied King Fisher.
