  1. Great Murchison tour

    We had the chance to go on a 3 day trip to Murchison falls which was an intense but definitely worth it. It was a great trip. We were 8 people in one car and saw so many animals from lions, to elephants, buffalo's, leopards,.... Overall a great experience and our guide was also flexible and knowledgeable about the animals and the park. Without him we definitely would not have seen so many great animals. The accomodation jibiri was also super. We had a shared room for 2 people with nice AC, bathroom and comfortable beds. The AC was definitely necessary. The staff was nice, only the food orders took quite some time, but the food itself good. I can definitely recommend the trip. In a short trip one gets to see so much and Murchison falls with it's impressive water falls, animals, and landscape is definitely worth a visit.
