Safari Last week me, Per, Aina and Ingrid and here parents went to Mourchison (Or something:p) Falls, one of the national parks in Uganda. It is around 5 hours drive from Kampala. We used some hours since our driver, had do help his son out of jail (but that’s another story).We slept in tents two and two, but they where big, and we even had beds, in the night we heard animals walking outside the tent, they said that sometimes there came a leopard inside the camp during the night. And also a hippo was usually walking around, but I did not see any of those, so I think it just was the wart hogs that stayed in the camp. E really beautiful animal… Or maybe not, you can decide for your self.
On Thursday we hade first a 4 hours drive in the park, where the driver raised the roof on the car, so we could stand and take pictures. There where so many animals to see, specially different kinds of birds, monkeys and Antelopes we got to see much of. After some driving around, we found there lions, they where walking around the car, and I think we got around five minutes with them, lovely. Than a little later we also met around twenty elephants crossing the road 30 meters in front of the car, was especially cool to see the biggest elephant, he stopped and looked at us, while the rest of the elephants crossed the road. When he saw that they where all safe over, he just turn around and walk after them. Then we saw some giraffes, water buffaloes, a hippo and many other.Later on the same day we went on a boat ride, a liked it very much. We saw many hippos, some crocodiles and many of the animals we saw earlier. I liked seeing the elephants eating from the tree. The trip was on three hours, we saw also a fall. Which we the next day, when for a little walking safari, it was really beautiful.
So I can say that I really enjoyed being on the safari, I think if I have to choose, I will say that the elephants and the lions was my favourite. We did no see any leopards that were an animal I really wanted to see.
Here are some more pictures.
