The 3 days Murchison Falls safari adventure takes you to Uganda’s largest and second most visited park after Queen Elizabeth. The park spans over 1,503 square miles and is a home to over 76 mammal species, more than 451 bird species, among other wildlife attractions.
Also, the park is bisected by Victoria Nile forming the famous northern and southern banks. The river banks attract a high concentration of wildlife including four of the big fives; the elephants, leopards, lions and the cape buffaloes.
Your 3 days Murchison Falls adventure will begin with an experienced driver – guide picking you from Kampala at 7:30am. After briefing you on how your safari will go, you will embark on your journey to Uganda’s celebrated Murchison Falls National Park.
You will make your first stop at Ziwa rhino sanctuary – the only place in Uganda where rhinos can be observed in their natural habitat. With the aid of park rangers, you will track and encounter the rhinos for an hour before continuing with your journey to Murchison Falls.
Your second day in Murchison falls will begin with a game drive at 6:30am, after having your breakfast.
