Murchison National Park – Uganda

I had the opportunity of spending about 2 weeks in Uganda in Oct/Nov 2009. The trip was taken in conjunction with Words of Hope radio ministries. I was invited to come along as one of the photographers to document the opening of a new recording studio on the campus of & inconjunction with the Uganda Christian University. At the end of the trip and with personal (not ministry) expenses we went to Murchision National Park of Uganda for two days. Murchison National Park is considered one of two sources of the Nile River. We were able to spend 1/2 day on the Nile River itself and a whole day on the savanah portion of the park. The attached slide show will show some of the wildlife we able to see.
