3 Day Game viewing Safari
Murchison Falls National Park

Plan a three day African vaccation to Murchison falls National Park if you have only 3 days off your business travel schedule and yet you must camp and relax along the great Nile River.

Murchison falls is Uganda's beautiful and largest national park protecting a variety of untamed African savannah animals and birds.

Murchison falls National Park derives it name from the Murchison falls where the mighty river Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and flows down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged with Hippos, crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes.

This Uganda National park is also home to a variety of wild animals and birds, boasting the world's most accessible wild population of the rare shoebill stork.

The falls was as you would expect impressive....,but it was interestingly the camp site that we will remember.

We have got better at chasing off monkey packs intent on stealing anything edible.

We have a stick ready to go and are on to them, this place however caught us off guard as we were the subject of wart hog attack.
