Top Of The Falls
Alternatively, the top of the falls can be explored by driving there. The 15km drive starts by branching off from the Masindi – Paraa road close to Sambiya River lodge. The drive requires careful driving as it passes through steep and slippery landscapes. Encountering the top of Murchison Falls which is the most powerful water fall in the world is one of the rewarding encounters you can have while on safari tours in Uganda. One marvel at the impressive Nile River squeezing its self to pass through a less than 8m gorge before falling 43m below to what has been termed as the Devil’s Cauldron forming a plume of spray surrounded by a thunderous roar marked by a trade mark rainbow. This feature has been termed as the most significant natural wonder to ever happen on the course of the Nile. The site has impressive opportunities for photography and one would need like 2 hours to explore it while on Uganda safaris and tours.
