The launch trip to the bottom of the Falls, lasting about 3 hours, is unforgettable look at birds, elephant, buffalo, crocodile, and hippo on The Nile banks; experience this mighty river. On the game drive, Buffalo, leopard, antelope, Rothschild’s giraffe, hartebeest, waterbuck and lion can also be seen. Over 450 bird species have been recorded. Perhaps the frothiest attraction in the Area are the sterning Murchison Falls. For about 80 kms from Karuma Falls in the East, The Nile is a rushing torrent of water which drops about 300 metres. It spills over the ancient rocks that form the Western Rift Valley wall, gushing through a 7 metre gorge and into the cauldron of turbulent water below, forming the fall.
