After an exhausting climb under the hot African sun, our group made it to the top. Welcomed by both the incredible view and the fresh shower created by the water crashing into the rocks.
It was amazing, and the feeling to be finally arrived and to be in front of these marvellous falls in Uganda was priceless. Few months ago most of us wouldn’t even have remotely thought about the possibility of being in Africa and now, here we were, speechless in front of yet another spectacle of nature.
I must say I was quite surprised when I first saw a giraffe in real life. Of course, I knew they were very tall, I read it gazillion of times and saw loads of pictures, but being just few meters away made a huge difference. Even the smallest one, a baby giraffe, was tall compared to us (or our van).
We saw them in 2 occasions and got to take pictures both from afar and very close-by. Although they tended to not get too close to us, they seemed to be very interested in us; especially the baby giraffe, which literally stood on the road in front of us, just facing us.
as mentioned in yesterday’s post, today I will be posting some pictures of the night sky and Milky Way in Uganda.
I am in a rush today, so I will be posting just the pictures.
after a long and nice weekend at Bugala island (the biggest island of the Ssese islands, in the Lake Victoria, Uganda), today I feel very slow; so, I am going to publish a short post.
Sunset in Kampala.
Sign stating the ‘official’ source of the river Nile, the longest river in the world.
At last, we are at the conclusion of this journey through this incredible park, considering its size.
We had the chance to see and appreciate very different species and got to finally see them in real life.
A venue of vultures on a tree.
This was my first safari and I truly loved it. My first but not my last.
In fact, in 2 weeks I am going to undertake another and much longer challenge: Murchison Falls National Park.
Skulls of several animals, including an hippo (the largest one).
After meeting many of the animals in the Lake Mburo national park, we are almost at the end of our journey. Now it is time for the buffalos and the very curious warthogs.
During our walk, we saw many warthogs (if you didn’t notice yet, they are nonetheless the same species as Pumba, from Disney’s The Lion King); they seemed to be, as I said before, very curious.
the journey at the Lake Mburo national park continues with a very beautiful animal: the zebra.
This time, the post is going to be mainly visual, meaning that I won’t write much and let you get a feeling by yourself.
