    Day 2    Kampala - Murchison Falls

    Depart Kampala in the morning after breakfast to head to Murchison Falls. Uganda\'s largest and oldest national park, the park was established in 1952 and acts as a conservation area to untamed wilderness and savannahs, split through the middle by the dramatic River Nile. The River Nile is on its journey from its source at Lake Victoria to join Lake Albert when it is suddenly channelled into a gorge only six meters wide, and cascades 43 meters below. The earth literally trembles at Murchison Falls - one of the world\'s most powerful flows of natural water, and the reason the park is named after these incredible waters. Murchison Falls has had a turbulent history and suffered greatly with poaching. It was not until the 1980s that poaching stopped and the animal population increased rapidly with sightings of lion, elephant, hippo, waterbuck, leopard and hyena increasing. With a variety of ecosystems and prolific birdlife, over 450 species recorded in the park including numerous raptors and the shoebill stork this is a wildlife enthusiast\'s paradise.
