Jinja and Murchison Falls Safari with Nextgen Safaris

This safari with Nextgen Safaris takes you to the breathtaking Murchison Falls, which feature a world renowned, scenic landscape. You will also enjoy a game drive and a boat cruise along the Nile River. Watch as this impressive body of water squeezes through a seven-meter gorge before tumbling 40 meters down in below in a thunderous explosion. It then transforms into peaceful river whose banks are swarmed with a profusion of animals and birds. Later you will make your way to Jinja for water rafting.
