Day 1 | Kampala to Murchison Falls National Park (Travel Time 5hrs+)

Rothschild's Giraffes at Murchison Falls National Park
Boat cruise at the bottom of Murchison Falls

Pickup time 6:30 am at your hotel or place of residence, after breakfast we begin our wildlife safari to Murchison Falls driving northward through Masindi.

As we enter the park we proceed to the top of the falls that makes the park so famous and well known. This is a place for most memorable pictures and a taking in of the sounds and sights, including the a rainbow that does not disappear, which is created by the mist of the falls. The top of the Falls is spectacular, being so close to the falls and hearing the roar and seeing the splendour from the top is such a wonderful experience.

Murchison Falls is “A sneak peek into Heaven”, you realise “the anger of the Nile”. It is a true master piece of nature. In a small space a million cubic meters of water from the Nile squeeze themselves through the Albertine gorge as they make their way towards Egypt. The river is 50 meters wide and goes through a 7 meter wide gorge plunging down 45 meters creating that roaring sound that will stay with you. Something you will never forget and there is something about standing alongside the mighty River Nile.

We then drive to the lodge and check in to selected accommodation,

  • Paraa Safari Lodge (Luxury)
  • Fort Murchison Lodge (Mid-range)
  • Red Chilli Camp (Budget)
Lunch at the lodge/camp

After lunch we take an evening boat cruise on the Nile River to the bottom of the falls, there is a lot to see like Nile crocodiles, hippopotamus along the bank and in the river in schools or families, bird species like goliath heron, carmine bee-eaters, red throated bee eater, giant king fishers among others, monkeys, buffaloes, elephants, bush bucks, water bucks, and so many others.

Return to the lodge for dinner and refreshment.
