After a restful yet anxious night due to the fear of finding warthogs in our tents in the morning, the team was up very early to begin the extremely anticipated safari adventure.
Whilst waiting for the ferry, we were fortunate enough to witness a picturesque sunrise as our guides supplied us with plenty of fascinating information which only made everyone more eager to get started.
We split into our groups and set off. It was an eventful 4 hours! We were amazed but the awe-inspiring elephants, warthogs, antelopes, giraffes, lions, leopards and hippos as well as a huge variety of different birds.
The safari was followed by a delicious lunch back at the Red Chilli Rest Camp before we headed on a boat safari down the Nile.
This included going all the way to Murchison Falls whilst stopping along the way to catch a glimpse of crocodiles and hippos - our favourite was definitely the baby hippo!
Although the ride was a little choppy, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Undoubtedly, it was an animal and action packed day but we are another step closer to the end of our wonderful experience in Uganda.
