We will continue through the park stopping at the top of the falls which is a fantastic sight. Here the Nile, the longest river in the world, is forced through a narrow gap in the rock (only 7 meters wide), before ferociously plunging down 43 meters.

Day 2: Safari game drives Murchison Falls National Park looking for giraffes, elephants, lions, leopard, hippos, crocodiles, etc
After breakfast head to the Delta in search for bird life and enjoy the game drive to look for lions, giraffes, herds of elephants, buffaloes and many more. We will drive back to the lodge for lunch before taking an afternoon boat cruise to the foot of Murchison Falls. This boat trip along the Nile is often cited as being the highlight of a trip to Murchison since it allows you to observe the animals. Along this stretch of the river, there are reported to be around 4,000 hippos in addition to some enormous Nile crocodiles. The bird life is stunning with brightly colored kingfishers and bee-eaters darting along the riverbanks. If lucky, you may see the rare and prehistoric looking shoebill, which is a cross between the dodo and a dinosaur. The boat takes you to the base of the falls which only adds to their impressiveness.
Day 3: Morning Game drive in the rest of the Game Park.
After an early Breakfast, We drive west of the Game Park looking for chimps, Baboons, Birds, Monkeys, Elephants, and Crocs among other Animals. This involves Chimp Trekking and some bit of walking. Cotton wear is highly recommended to avoid small thorns since path is just created in the forest.
