Program

Day 1: Transfer to Murchison Falls National Park, visit to the top of the falls, and afternoon Nile launch cruise

After your adorable breakfast, Rumara Safaris' well experienced and friendly tour guide will pick you up from Kampala (or Entebbe) and together, you will embark on the drive of about five hours (311 kilometers) to Murchison Falls National Park. You will drive along the prominent sceneries of Nakasongola, crossing the Kafu River and passing by the lush Budongo Forest, and upon arrival, you will drive to the top of the falls. You will meet the world’s longest Nile River as it cuddles itself to pass through an eight-meter ravine forming a plume of spray marked by a booming roar and a trademark rainbow as it falls 43 meters below to the Devils Cauldron. The site exhibits an unusual 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 14:00. The Nile launch cruise offers you an incredible opportunity to discover the calm waters of Nile River as they approach the delta. Here, you will gain splendid 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, where you can enjoy one of the enchanted sceneries in Uganda. Retreat from the activity and connect to the lodge for relaxation, dinner, and overnight.

Day 2: Game drive and transfer to Kampala

Early in the morning, you will connect to the remaining savannah landscapes of Murchison Falls National Park for a remarkable morning game drive in the northern part of the park to catch up with the early wildlife before they vanish to graze and hunt. You will trail the designated tracks including the Buligi, Albert, Queen, and Pakuba among others, stretching to the delta area, gaining remarkable views of wildlife and the landscapes. The possible sights include Rothschild's giraffes, Jackson’s hartebeest, lions, leopards, Cape buffaloes, oribis, elephants, and kobs among others. You will retreat from the activity that lasts three - four hours and cross with the ferry at 11:00 to embark on the drive to Kampala.
