Day 4: Hike To The Top o the Falls and Transfer to Kibale Forest National Park

Murchison falls along river Nile is a true master piece of nature! In a small space a million cubic meters of water from the Nile squeeze themselves through the Albertine gorge as they make their way 6,853 km (4,258 miles) towards Egypt. Many people wonder how the scenic falls would actually be, but once you are on top of them and see the entire Nile going through a small gap, it makes sense why so many visitors make the trip. The Nile River is about 50 meters wide on top just before the falls, it drops down 43 meters through a 7-meter-wide gorge.
The journey to the top is a long one but once you reach this place, it becomes worth it. The thunderous spectacle and noise made by the water as it passes through the tiny hole is magnificent – one not to be missed by anyone with the means because no better words can explain the display.
Later transfer to Kibale National Park where you will stay for the night at Chimpanzee Forest Guesthouse.

They are found in 21 countries throughout Africa, but are most easily sighted in Uganda due to their dense populations. There is also a wonderfully diverse concentration of other primates, more than any other forest in East Africa, in fact. Besides our delightful cousins, the chimpanzees, you can find red colobus, red-tailed guenon, white-nosed monkey, gray-cheeked mangabey, blue monkey, L’Hoest’s monkey, and the black and white colobus monkey.

This part is famous for its’ tree-climbing lions. While lion cubs around the world frequently climb trees for fun, adults rarely do. However, these lionesses enjoy spending their time snoozing in fig trees to get away from the tsetse flies and to enjoy a cool breeze. This is the most memorable sight in the park as you have never seen such photogenic lions posing for your camera before. Meanwhile don’t miss the stunning scenery and superb bird life in this southern remote section of the park either. Later relax, enjoy dinner and overnight rest at Gorilla Valley Lodge.

Encountering the rare and endangered Mountain Gorillas of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is an experience of a lifetime.

In the company of an experienced park ranger you will be tracking the whereabouts of one of the nine habituated family groups who live in the park. Depending on the location of the gorillas on any given day the walk can take anything from 2 to 7 hours. Once the family of gorillas has been located, settle in to your surroundings and enjoy the hour you have to quietly observe these fascinating primates whose habits and mannerisms remind us so much of our own.
If time and energy allows, visit the Batwa people and learn about their culture, way of living and know their origin. Did you know that this is the shortest and remote tribe in the country? Later relax, enjoy dinner and overnight at Lake Bunyonyi Rock Resort.
