3 Days Murchison falls Safari

3 Days Murchison falls Safari: Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest national park. The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile from east to west.

This is where the Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and cascades down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged with hippos and crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes.

The vegetation is characterized by savannah, riverine forest and woodland. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, hartebeests, or ibis, Uganda kobs, chimpanzees, and many bird species.

On the first day we will depart for the most beautiful protected area in Uganda: Murchison Falls National Park making a stopover en route for snacks.

This is a guided drive to experience the roads of Uganda and appreciating its beauty. You will also have lunch at the way after which, you will transfer to a lodge in Murchison.

Day 2; Game drive & Boat Cruise

In the morning, we set off for a game-drive in Murchison Falls national park. On the broad savannah you search for big cats, Elephants, Giraffes, Buffalos, plus more as the checklist of mammals reaches 76. We continue browsing the circuits to the delta point for a cocktail of birds and mammals.

In the afternoon you go for the boat ride on the Nile to the base of Murchison Falls where you get to see the Hippos, Nile Crocodiles, Elephants and a variety of beautiful bird species along the banks.

If you are a keen birder this might be your magnet to catch them. When reaching the falls you jump of the boat and go with a guide to the top of the falls.

It is a beautiful hike that takes you to see the falls close up as an explosive dash of water at close range gushes through a narrow crevice before the Nile continues its journey towards the Mediterranean.

Your guide picks you at the top of the falls and you continue back to the lodge to spend the night there.

(The hike to the top of the falls includes a steep trail so might not be suitable if you have some health issues.)

Day 3; Travel from Murchison Falls National Park to Kampala.

After breakfast, drive with the last game drive while exiting the park. Enjoy the nature too as you compare the landscapes, vegetation and temperatures of the north and the south. Your last destination will be Kampala.
