Description

This 2 day adventure at Murchison Falls and Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary takes you through the spectacular heritage of Uganda. Breathtaking landscapes and alluring wildlife are bound to leave you stunned at what Uganda has to offer. This adventure is a combination of a game drive (safari) and a boat cruise along the river Nile.

This park has an array of flora and fauna and also houses 4 of the Big 5


Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Transfer from Entebbe International Airport / Kampala to Murchison Falls National Park

    On your arrival at Entebbe international airport, you will be received by your driver/guide for the next 2 days. He will brief you about your tour and then together head towards Murchison Falls National Park for the start of your adventure. Depending on the time of your arrival at Entebbe, you will have an early breakfast either at Entebbe or Kampala. Setting off on the 320KM drive to the national park, the 7 hour drive will take you through beautiful woodlands and savannah grasslands. On reaching Murchison Falls National Park by afternoon, you will have a delicious freshly prepared meal and some spare time for a quick rest.

    Setting out on a boat cruise by 3PM on the placid Victoria Nile, you will make your way upstream to the base of the waterfall. A lot of animal game that includes hippos, crocodiles, water bucks and variety of birds can be seen enroute. If luck is on your side, you might even be able to catch a glimpse of the Shoebill stork. The boat stops at very close proximity to the “Devil’s Cauldron” which is the best spot to capture the magnificent Murchison Falls on your cameras. You will thereafter return to the lodge of your choice for a lovely dinner and a good night’s rest. The next day holds a lot more action. .
