Detailed tour.

Day 1: Pick up and transfer to Murchison Falls National Park.

Our safari guide will pick you from the agreed point and take you through a quick briefing about the safari and start the journey to Murchison Falls National Park. Stop for rhino trekking in Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and another stopover in Masindi for lunch, before proceeding to the park.

This sanctuary protects rhinos that survived after the 1980s civil wars and in 2004 the government of Uganda restored a handful back into the sanctuary. You will also spot other primates and birds in the sanctuary. Continue with your journey and check in at the booked lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 2: Morning game drive and boat cruise

Rise early morning and head to the park headquarters to register and pick a ranger guide and move for the interesting drive with the beautiful sunrise. Spot and record most of the wildlife that wake up early for morning hunts like leopards, lions, hyenas and other mammals. Later enjoy delicious bush breakfast and continue with the drive to spot many more for example giant elephants, Uganda kobs, giraffes, warthogs, etc. Drive back to the lodge for lunch and relaxation.

In the afternoon, you will head for the great and amazing adventure of boat cruise which will lead you to the bottom of Murchison falls and an eventual visit to top of the falls. Enroute to the top of Murchison falls, beautiful nature will welcome you with beautiful flowers, butterflies and unrivaled views of River Nile.

Spot how water meets in the gorge and forms a permanent rainbow, woodland and rocks. After this great adventure embark on a return journey to the lodge and as you drive back take a chance to spot water animals like hippos and Nile crocodiles. Check in at the lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3: Chimpanzee trekking in Budongo forest

Chimpanzee trekking in Budongo forest is totally different, amazing, interesting and memorable since you have high chances of interacting with international researchers and share with you more knowledge about these primates in their natural home. You are given only one hour to spend with these primates, learn and get to see how close to humans they are. The researchers say that, they share 98% of DNA humans which makes them more relatable to humans before gorillas.

Day 4. Morning game drive and departure

On this day, wake up early morning for breakfast and check out of the lodge heading for your last game drive in Murchison Falls National Park. Take an opportunity to spot wildlife that you might have missed or spot the ones you had already spotted for the last time and continue with the journey back to Kampala.

Have your lunch enroute and proceed on the journey, getting to the city of Kampala and if time grants, you’ll visit any craft shop and purchase some souvenirs to take home for remembrance. Your driver guide will drop you at the hotel or airport depending on the agreed place, marking the end of your 4 days safari in Murchison Falls National Park Uganda.
