From a naturalist’s perspective, Murchison Falls National Park really is a paradise.

After the briefing, you will set off for the 7-8 hours long covering 310km but time will fly by; it is just so beautiful here! We are going to enjoy a stop at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, the only place in Uganda to see the near-threatened Southern White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) in the wild.  The experience of seeing a rhino on foot a few meters away from you is an experience you will never forget and hence we will start our mammal and bird trip lists with a bang today!

This super exciting start to our safari will be followed by lunch at nearby Kabalega dinners, and if you want to try some of the local Ugandan cuisine this is your first real chance. After lunch you make your way to Murchison falls where you will engage in a miniature game drive as you head to your lodge.

11 Days Uganda Safari – GORILLA TREKKING TIPS

  Mountain gorillas sometimes nest far from the start of your gorilla trek, you should pace yourself and drink plenty of water.

  Eating, drinking and smoking near the gorillas is forbidden – designated time and place will be communicated.

  Bwindi being a tropical forest, it can rain anytime so we encourage you to carry a rain poncho

  Waterproof walking shoes or hiking boots are essential.

  Gardening gloves for protection against stinging plants

  Long trousers and long sleeved sweaters or shirts while in the forest to avoid insect stings.

  Photography is permitted, although you must not use flash

  Porters are available to help you carry your day pack for a small charge

  As you prepare to come for your Uganda gorilla adventure, please do some exercises so that you prepare your body for gorilla trekking which can last between 3-8 hours

  In case you can’t walk for a very long time, you shouldn’t really worry about not being able to do gorilla trekking because there are potters who can carry you throughout at a small extra cost.

  Carry your sunscreen lotion to keep your skin safe from the tropical heat & sun rays

  When you get to the gorillas, don’t make noise because this agitates the gorillas
