Day 1 of the 4 Days Wildlife & Chimpanzee Safari to Murchison Falls &Kibale Forest National Parks: Transfer to Murchison Falls National Park. Track White Rhinos en route in Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

After breakfast, leave Kampala for Murchison Falls National Park located in North Western part of Uganda 311km about 5 hours’ drive. You pass via the Luweero have a panoramic drive northwest through the former battle zone of the Luwero Triangle. Have a stop at Ziwa Rhino’s sanctuary for a brief tour of this rhino restoration project. Following extinction of Uganda’s rhino in the early 1980s during the period of civil unrest and heavy poaching, a sanctuary has now been established to breed southern white rhinos, and restore rhino populations in Uganda’s protected areas in a later stage. Apparently a count of fifteen Rhinos thrives in the sanctuary and can be explored. You retreat from the activity and connect to Murchison Falls through Masindi town and the lush tropical forest of Budongo arriving in the evening for relaxation, dinner and overnight

murchison-falls-wildlife

Following an early morning cup of coffee, embark on the game drive in the northern section of the Murchison Falls National Park with open savannah with scattered borassus palm trees and this kind of vegetation supports a range of grazers and the predators that come after them.  The possible sights on the drive include; elephants, lions, Cape buffalo, Rothschild’s giraffes, hartebeests, waterbucks, oribi, bushbucks, bohor reed bucks, hyenas, and on rare cases leopards. Return to the lodge for relaxation and lunch. After lunch, you will safari upstream by boat to the calm Victoria Nile and the base of the falls just tens of meters from the “Devil’s Cauldron.” There you can marvel at toothsome hippos, crocodiles and over the 17-kilometer stretch you may also see elephants, waterbucks and Uganda kobs drinking water on the river side. This is also the habitat of many bird species including goliath herons, Egyptian geese, pelican bee-eaters, kingfishers, Hombills, cormorants and the rare shoebill stork. Upon reaching the bottom of the falls, you embark on the hike to the top of the spectacular fall where you can see the Nile’s perfected beauty, and marvel as it compresses and squeezes itself to fall 43m down through a 7-meter canyon. The 150-meter drop of the falls creates a thunderous roar and a beautiful rainbow in a plume of spray – the best thing to ever happen to the Nile. After taking shots of the photogenic Murchison Falls you will return for dinner and an overnight.
