Murchison Falls Tour


Day 1

Travel To Murchison Falls National park

Depart Kampala towards north of Uganda. Have a stop-over at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to view Rhino, animals that became extinct in the early 1980s due to excessive poaching. Enroute, we will visit a few pineapple gardens, and possibly taste Uganda’s organic fruits right from where they are grown – every visitor to taste them has been left speechless!. Proceed to Murchison Falls National park, through a plateau covered in green and typical African settlements. Expect to meet some primates (baboons, Colobus and Vervet Monkeys), butterflies and birds. Dinner & Overnight stay at lodge.

Day 2

Chimpanzee sights and Waterfall Sounds

Wake up to the sounds of birds and typical wild fresh air, and start day with a delicious breakfast. Set off for chimpanzee tracking, to have a wild encounter with the apes with which human beings share 98% of genetic material. Seeing them in their natural habitat is a thrilling experience. But the best of the day will come with the afternoon visit to the top of the Murchison Falls, a point where River Nile plunges into a 4 meter wide crevice, as it falls 40 meters down to produce a thunderous noise and a full rainbow in front of you. You can spend a day, and a lifetime just enjoying this sight of the Nile without ever getting tired. In the vicinity are birds, butterflies and wild animals. Dinner and Overnight stay at lodge.

Day 3

Wild Game Drives and Sights of Murchison Falls

Have early morning breakfast and set off for morning game drive in the park many say is the most densely populated protected area in Uganda. You will encounter lots of birds, elephants, giraffe, lions, buffalos, and if lucky, leopards and hyenas. Besides, the beautiful plains you will see on this drive will take away your breath! You will also visit the site where men and women (local community) make handicrafts and souvenirs, to see how the process goes and possibly try out by yourself, and also learn how your stay in Uganda impacts the lives of the rural poor.

Later in the afternoon, you will take a boat cruise on the Nile towards the base of the Murchison Waterfalls, to complete the sight obtained when you view the falls from above. You may opt to have one more round of the top of the waterfall, on a guided walk from the base. Return to lodge for afternoon rest and overnight stay.

Day 4

Return to Kampala

Have morning breakfast and set off for Kampala, stopping at Bomwe Women Community to learn about their initiative and buy a few handicrafts. Enroute to Kampala, you will visit the Nubian Community, a group of women that are using handicraft trade to fight poverty and improve their welfare. Return to Airport for return flight.
