On my tour to Murchison Falls national park, we entered the park at night and the first thing that caught my eye was the great night sky, the stars were very bright and the fire flies that went about their business made the view splendid. I could not get my eyes out of the window as the sight got better the further we go into the park. The following day we had a game drive where we had the pleasure to see the elephants, giraffes, lions, zebras, snakes, hippopotamus, buffalos and antelopes. The drive took us to Lake Albert and the community crafts village.
The following day at 8am we setoff for the famous Murchison Falls. Another thing I noticed was that the boat ride was long almost to two hours which gives people enough time on the water to see the animals drinking and also take memorable pictures on the boat. The boat leaves the tourist at the foot of the falls which gives them a great adventure and also exercise for the adventurous tourist but might not be great for weak tourists as some areas are high. The nature walk is beautiful and mind blowing as it presents unique views for the tourists to see the great falls and at the end of the walk, the tourist is refreshed by the sight at the top of the falls where memorable pictures can be taken.
