We sat and stood on a boat, cruising along the River Nile, cameras ready and eyes peeled for wildlife in the surrounding riverine forest, savannah and woodland. I stood with my close friends, excited to see some crocs and elephants.
Murchison approached and little did we know about the beautiful big falls behind this narrow gorge! We had to get off the boat and start hiking on the trails, to get to this beautiful falls, highlighted with a rainbow.
The Murchison National park is suited in the northern part of Albertine Rift Valley. The park is one of Uganda’s well protected areas, and it was one of the most memorable areas for me in Uganda.
I remember walking in my awful seasoned non-hiking cotton green cheap shoes and trying not to fall to my death over the slipper rocks!.. And it was well worth the effort for it entitled me this awesome picture!
I am ashamed to admit that my photography skills were at an all time low at this point of time. These photos do not capture the beauty of this falls.
Uganda is definitely a great introduction to the continent of Africa! Particularly to the East and West, in my opinion. The North comprising of Morocco and South consisting of Cape Town are superbly different. A landlocked country, its a tough fight with Kenya.
Africa is a place far from our lists I expect, especially for Asians. Its a continent so unbelievably vast, I could not comprehend how big it actually was until I was travelling for hours on the road. Even if I had mixed feelings about my month long trip, casting away the negativity, deep in my heart I knew I would be back. Africa has my heart.
