Day 2: MURCHISON FALLS PARK
Another day in the park!
Morning game drive in the northern bank of river Nile as we look out for the elephant, lion, Cape buffalo, Rhod’schild giraffe, hartebeest, Oribi, bushbuck, Bohor reedbuck, spotted hyena and if lucky you could even spot the leopard. We will be back in time to have breakfast and lunch at the lodge. In the afternoon we take a boat cruise at 1400 hours upstream to the ‘bottom of the falls’. The Nile here gets calm at the base of the falls, we stop a few meters from the ‘Devil’s Cauldron’, where it compresses 47 mt to squeeze through a 6-meter canyon dropping 40 mt with a thunderous roar. En-route, marvel at the, hippos, crocodiles and over this 17 km stretch you may see elephants as well as a lot of bird species like Goliath heron, pelican bee– eater, kingfisher, hornbill, cormorant and the rare shoebill stork.
JERRY HELD, US – TRAVELLED WITH BILLY DODSON
As far as a testimonial, I would say that this trip was far better than I imagined it would be. Serah put together a first rate safari. Accomodations were excellent, the safari guides were very knowledgable and friendly and fun to be around, and our host Billy Dodson made it all worthwhile. I can safely say that I would never have given a safari to East Africa a second thought if I had not met Billy. He sold me on this trip and it was well worth it.
People go on safari to see the animals, but the main attraction to me was the people of Tanzania. How you can have so little and be so happy is a formula for living that we have long since lost in the USA.
