The main destination of this tour is Murchison Falls National Park, where the already quite wide Nile squeezes through a 7 m narrow point. Already this spectacle would be worth a trip, but of course there are zebras, antelopes, buffalos, giraffes, lions, hyenas and much more. Another highlight is located on the way to Murchison Falls, Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, a very heavily guarded sanctuary dedicated to the breeding of rhinos – very successful by the way.

Itineraries

Day 1

Drive from Kampala / Entebbe to Murchison Falls National Park with stopover at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

The main destination of this tour is Murchison Falls National Park, where the already quite wide Nile squeezes through a 7 m narrow point. Already this spectacle would be worth a trip, but of course there are zebras, antelopes, buffalos, giraffes, lions, hyenas and much more. Another highlight is located on the way to Murchison Falls, Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, a very heavily guarded sanctuary dedicated to the breeding of rhinos - very successful by the way. We pick you up early at your accommodation or at the airport and leave immediately. Already during the journey, you can get a good impression of everyday life here, which usually takes place outside during dry weather. About half way we stop at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. This is a rhinoceros sanctuary dedicated to the breeding of these impressive animals. Meanwhile, the 25th cub was born. With a ranger you hike the area in a small group and can approach the animals very quietly - an unforgettable experience that also supports the further work there. Then we drive to Murchison Falls National Park, where we finish off the day with a game drive and hopefully many animal sightings. The overnight stay takes place within the park. Accommodation: Fort Murchison Lodge Meals: lunch and dinner Drinks: water while driving, other drinks not included

Day 2

Game drive and boat cruise

Immediately after breakfast we start our next game drive. Now temperatures are still low and the animals are active. We have the chance to see lions, hyenas, leopards and jackals. In the afternoon we join a boat cruise, which opens a completely different perspective. We approach the Murchison Falls upstream and besides waterresidents like hippos and crocodiles we may see many other animals that want to cool down by the heat of the day. Overnight: Fort Murchison Lodge Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner Drinks: water while driving, other drinks not included

Day 3

Hike to Murchison Falls and return to Kampala / Entebbe

In the morning we make two small walks, which again offer us beautiful views of the waterfalls, but which are usually a bit exhausting due to the unobstructed sunshine. However expecially the view of the falls from a lookout above is unforgettable. You get an impression of the power and speed with which the water is pushed through the bottleneck. After this last impression we drive back to Kampala / Entebbe. Meals: breakfast and lunch Drinks: water while driving, other drinks not included
