After leaving Jinja, we made our way to Kampala to go on a Safari with Red Chili Hide Away. They drove us to Murchison Falls (about 7 hours North of Kampala) to visit the falls and park there. We stayed in a rustic Safari tent where hippos visited us nightly. What amazing creatures! The next morning we headed out on a game drive where we came upon a male lion resting in the middle of an open field. Our guide spotted him by noticing all the gazelle standing at full attention watching their predator. It was quite a sight to behold. Later that day we headed up the Albert Nile river to Murchison Falls. It was a little bit of a let down considering we come from the valley where Yosemite and it's mighty falls. The highlight of the boat trip though was the wildlife we encountered along the rivers edge. We saw countless pods of hippos, crocodiles, elephants and giraffe. We also saw many beautilful birds.
After the safari we were driven back to Kampala for our flight on to Nairobi.
