Safaris in Murchison Falls National Park are much less busy than the crowded parks in other parts of East Africa so we were keen to add it to our itinerary on our trip to Uganda. We opted for 2 days in Murchison Falls; check out our post and guide on the wildlife you can see in Murchison Falls National Park.
As travellers venture out to enjoy the many sights and scenes the wide world has to offer, it is important that they to try to give back while on the road. Many tourist destinations are such because they are home to something special or rare. This is the case for the rhinos at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary in Uganda.
“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware.” – Martin Buber
Travellers know this to be true: there is a special type of satisfaction that comes with feeling like you’ve “discovered” something. Zanzibar is famous for white sand beaches, calm clear waters featuring fishing boats with romantic white sales, and a lush countryside ripe for growing fragrant spices.
After testing my courage the day prior by trying to kayak through white water rapids on the Nile, I decided that I loved kayaking but wasn’t so sure about the paddling through rapids business. I debated between taking a sunset yoga class and renting a river kayak for a peaceful cruise at dusk. Having these options available to me is yet another reason why the Nile River Explorers camp at Bujagali Falls is such an incredible place.
After returning from our five month adventure in East Africa, one of the questions people were inevitably asking what the most memorable part of our experience was. That has always been a question that we’ve struggled to answer, but near the top of the list is definitely Kayaking the Nile in Jinja Uganda.
