The black and white colombus monkeys cannot be missed as they jump in the tree branches along the river banks. Crocodiles will be spotted along the rocks in the riverm and finally the magnificent view of the murchison water falls. Head back to our lodge for Dinner and overnight.
Another game drive as we wind up our trip to Murchison falls. Relaxed as we have seen almost all te animals, we are now using our eyes and a bit of cameras to capture the last moment. Check out and head back to Kampala / Entebbe Airport for your return flight.
