Program

Day 1: Murchison Falls National Park

Transfer to Murchison Falls National Park and visit the top of the falls and afternoon Nile launch cruise. After breakfast, your tour guide will pick you from Kampala (or Entebbe) and you will embark on the drive (311 kilometers from Kampala and approximately five hours) to Murchison Falls National Park.

Drive along the notable landscapes of Nakasongola, crossing the Kafu River and passing by the verdant Budongo Forest and upon arrival, you’ll drive to the top of the falls. You'll encounter the world’s longest Nile River as it squeezes itself to pass through an eight mile ravine forming a plume of spray marked by a thunderous roar and a trademark rainbow as it falls 43 meters below to the Devils Cauldron. The site displays an extraordinary scene for photography.

Retreat from the activity and connect to Paraa Jetty to catch up with the Nile launch cruise to the bottom of the falls departing at 2 p.m. The Nile launch cruise offers you an opportunity to explore the calm waters of Nile River as they approach the delta gaining views of the aquatic species like Nile crocodiles and hippos not forgetting the lucky sights of the most sought-after shoebill stork.

The boat stops at the bottom of Murchison Falls - the world’s powerful waterfall enjoying one of the magical sceneries in Uganda. Retreat from the activity and connect to the lodge for relaxation, dinner, and overnight.

  • Accommodation: Heritage Safari Lodge

Day 2: Game drive and transfer to Kampala

At 7 a.m. you will connect to the continuing savannah landscapes of Murchison Falls National Park for an impressive morning game drive in the northern part of the park to catch up with the early wildlife before they disappear to graze and hunt.

Follow the designated tracks including the Buligi, Albert, Queen, Pakuba among others stretching to the delta area gaining remarkable views of wildlife and the landscapes. The possible sights include Rothschild Giraffes, the Jackson’s Hartebeest, the lions, the leopards, the Cape Buffaloes, the Oribis, the elephants, Kobs among others.
