Day 1: Rhinos in the wild

The highlight of this trip is game viewing in our custom made vehicles. Anticipate to capture good pictures as you move along, Giraffes as they move through the grasslands, Hartebeest, buffaloes, Uganda Kobs etc. After this magical experience return to your lodge for lunch. In the afternoon look forward to the famed boat Safari on River Nile from where you shall watch different animals along the shore and continue to about ten metres from the bottom of Murchison falls – also known as ‘Devils cauldron”.
