Drewett trip - day 10


This was our second and final day of safari in the National Park. We had a drive in the morning, followed by a boat ride to Murchison Falls in the afternoon. The highlights of our morning drive were a beautiful lioness (spotted by our amazing tracker ranger!) followed by a brief glimpse of a leopard!!!! as it climbed down from the tree. This was such a treat as there are only 11 leopards in the whole park, and our ranger said that she only gets to see one about every three months! The boat trip was also fun, with lots of close-ups of hippos and crocs.
We returned to the hotel for a brief swim with the rest of the team before dinner and bed. We have a long ride back to Kampala tomorrow .... and knowing the road ahead it is not an attractive prospect!
