The 3 Days Murchison Falls National Park Safari tour featuring Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and a walk to the top of the falls, with 2 game drives and bush breakfast is a Wildlife Uganda Safari centered on Murchison Falls National Park. It is uniquely designed from other safaris with the bush breakfast and the hike to the top of the falls. These two incorporated to the 2 game drives in Murchison where the Big five thrive including the elephants, the Buffaloes Lions and leopards with Rhinos in the adjacent sanctuary. The recreational launch cruise on the Nile River marked by the hike to the top of the falls exploring the Nile River as it squeezes itself to pass through a less than 8m ravine before falling 43m below to what has been termed as the Devils Cauldron generating a plume of spray and a thunderous roar marked by a trademark rain bow derives a moment of wonder a lifetime Uganda safari memory. Accommodation is presented in the selected lodges of Luxury Paraa Safari Lodge, Midrange Pakuba Safari Lodge and Budget Heritage Safari Lodge though other lodges exist for your optional choice.
