5 Day Tour. Murchison Falls National Park. Code (UG02)
4 Nights, 5 Days
Murchison Falls National Park
The Murchison National Park is the largest National Park in Uganda and lies in the north western portion of the country spreading inland from the shore of Lake Albert around the Victoria Nile. The Budongo forest is in the South, the Rift Valley escarpment and open woodlands are in the Northern part of the park. The Murchison Falls National Park protects a huge chunk of untamed African savannah bisected by the mighty River Nile which tumbles through a 7 meter gorge forming the most powerful waterfall in the world; this mighty river produces a thunderous roar as its waters are forced through the narrow gorge, one of nature’s most memorable sights.
We spend two to three hours searching for Elephants, Buffalos, Giraffes, Bushbucks, Lions and a wide variety of bird species. Return for lunch with time to rest before boarding the Boat for an exciting trip upstream to view the Murchison waterfalls from the bottom of the falls, where a mass of water from the mighty Nile River is compacted through a narrow 7 meter gorge to form the most powerful waterfall in the World.
Many species of wildlife will be seen on the banks of this spectacular game viewing area. This is an opportunity to see the amazing numbers of hippos, crocodiles, water birds along either side of the river. Return for dinner and overnight in the park.
After breakfast we drive through Ugandan countryside which alone is worth a trip and go for chimpanzee trekking in Budongo Forest. Uganda is one of the best places anywhere to see properly habituated wild chimpanzees in their natural environments. To interact with these wild Chimpanzees in their natural habitat is indeed an honour and a lifelong memory in the making.
We have lunch in Masindi and return to Kampala at leisure in time for dinner and overnight in the city of Kampala.
