It’s midnight in London - we fly to Uganda in 6hours - I can’t sleep, its not worth it - its much more fun getting organised and sleeping in the sky.
We are heading for the Nile - we will be there for 10days and I will blog as much as I can. Murchison Falls NP - magical, unforgiving and incredible!
Uganda's largest national park protects a chunk of untamed African savannah bisected by the mighty river Nile.
It is named for the dramatic Murchison Falls, where the world's longest river explodes violently through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 43m below.
Wildlife populations have largely recovered from the poaching of the 1980s; in the lush borassus grassland to the north of the Nile, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and a variety of antelope are regularly encountered and lion are seen with increasing frequency.
