2 DAYS - MURCHISON FALLS SAFARI AND ZIWA RHINO SANCTUARY


Description

This is a Murchison Falls safari that takes you Uganda’s spectacular heritage, with breathtaking scenic allure, and landscapes. You will enjoy a game drive and a boat cruise along the Nile River and observe the squeezing of the Nile River in a 7 meter gorge before tumbling 40 meters down in a thunderous explosion and then flows down into a very peaceful river whose water banks are swarmed with a profusion of water and land animals as well as birds.
