Day two of our Ugandan safari and just after dawn we're crossing the River Nile by ferry. As we wait to load our vehicle, we can see hippo and crocs on the far bank about 200 meters away. I have never seen so many hippo in one place. Once across we enjoyed some great game viewing before a well earned lunch. In the late afternoon we took a boat ride upstream and then disembarked to trek up the side of the falls. A simply amazing experience. When we reached the top we were greeted by the awe inspiring sight of the river Nile roaring through a 6m gap in the rocks, that is the Mercheson Falls. Fantastic.
