Along the way before Masindi town, visit the Ziwa sanctuary & track rhinos to support the initiative that wants to reintroduce them back into the wild. Game drives within Murchison falls park and a boat trip upstream the Nile to Spot the Murchison falls, formed by eternal war between rock and water.   Driving past a verdant countryside with traditional homesteads & farms to the Primate Capital of the World – Kibale forest via Hoima and one of a kind Fort portal tourism city.
