3 Days Murchison Falls National Park Safari Tour

Murchison Falls National Park

Our 3 days Murchison Falls National Park safari is a 2 nights/3 days safari to Murchison Falls National Park which includes a visit to Budongo Forest where we will have a chance of tracking and watch our closest living relatives, the Chimpanzees close up and in their magisterial natural surroundings.

After this exciting adventure, we continue to Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda’s largest national park named for the dramatic Murchison Falls (the world’s most powerful waterfall) where the Nile River, the longest river on planet Earth explodes violently through a 7m wide gap in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 45m below.

This amazing park also has a record of 451 bird species and 76 mammal species including four of the Big Five (Lions, Leopards, Elephants, and Buffalos) plus the world’s largest population of the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe. Here, you will have an opportunity to enjoy a game drive and boat cruise along the Nile to the bottom of the falls plus a hike to the top of the falls viewpoint. Our 3 days Murchison Falls National Park safari will be crowned with a visit to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where you will have a chance to track these peaceful members of the Big 5 in the wilderness on foot.
