Every good turn deserves another. This is what I think about when my mind is jotted in the Murchison Falls adventure. The freshwaters, air, views, landscapes, wild animals and not to mention the falls. Sister gal... like a person I know would say, PLEASE take me back. If you are searching for a lifetime trip, get yourself at Murchison. If you want to explore the most exciting parts of this large park, I can hook you up with Nature Boy who will make you wish you met him a decade ago. Kanve ne wano before I start booking for another trip in December.
