Murchison Falls National Park – Relaxed Safari Introductions on the River
The River Nile provides your first safari memories, where bulbous hippos wade in the famous waterway throughout the day before emerging to graze at night. Sometimes you are sitting at the lodge and one barrels out of the river, illuminated by the moon. At other times, you gaze out from the terrace to elephants, a small herd on their route to take a drink. Life on all African savannas revolves around water, and there is a busy wildlife channel running straight past your lodge bringing the safari straight to you. When you have a view over the river, there is always something roaming past.
Landing in Entebbe today, you transfer onto a light aircraft bound for Murchison Falls National Park. The lodge provides a dreamy place to overcome any jet lag or travel fatigue. Just sit back and absorb the sights and sounds, the safari experience alive all day and throughout the night. Another effortless impression of safari is provided when you are actually on the river, a boat cruise revealing the life up and down the banks of the Nile. Ugandan kob skip in the shallows, buffalo cool off in the river, giraffe rise high above the banks, and a huge population of Nile crocodiles waits stealthily to pounce.
