Murchison Falls National Park with the Nile river crossed by it, the savannah with its elephant herds, the largest population of Rothschild giraffes (over 1000), the un-ending Buffalo herds, the lions, the elusive leopard all await you on this balloon flight. You are up at 6.00 am and are delivered at
the balloon launch spot. Once in the balloon, you lift off at dawn for safari that lasts 2 hours. Admire herds of buffalo, elephants seen from above. You rise as the sun rises and float in whatever direction the wind takes you. Fly high above the trees and hills to enjoy the best of Murchison Falls National Park with many great photo opportunities of scenery and wildlife below. You enjoy breakfast in the bush right after the balloon safari. After your flight, continue on a game drive in a safari vehicle and return to the lodge later. After your lunch at 2.00pm, you will head out for the boat launch to the bottom of the powerful Murchison Falls. This three-hour boat cruise climaxes at the edge of the rift valley escarpment at which point you will get off the boat and trek to the top of the falls (wear sports shoes while on the boat for ease of trekking to the top). Having worked up a sweat, once at the top, get bathed in the misty spray that the Nile create as it forces itself into the 7-metre cleft to create the famous Murchison Falls. Your guides will be waiting up top to transfer you back to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay. Dinner and overnight at Murchison River Lodge.
