3 Days Murchison Falls Safari – Multi-day & extended tours in Kampala
Enjoy a 3 Days Murchison Falls Safari during which you will visit Murchison Falls National Park to view scenic waterfalls and a sunrise game drive where you can see various wildlife, including buffaloes, giraffes, warthogs, lions, primates, and birds. Enjoy a boat cruise on the Victoria Nile for photographic opportunities, and visit the top of the falls.
Day 1: Travel to Murchison Falls National Park (5-6 hrs)
You will have an early breakfast and drive to Murchison Falls National Park passing through beautiful woodlands and Savannah grasslands. This journey takes 6-7 hours with stopovers at interesting tourist attractions en route.
Go straight to tour the top and bottom of majestic falls, where the Nile crashes through a 22 foot (7 m.) gorge to the 147 foot (45 m.) falls. Numerous scenic viewpoints are a photographer’s delight. The most impressive view is the foaming waters rushing into the gorge with a deafening roar.
You will wake up very early and set off at 6.30am for a sunrise game drive in the Nyamsika plateau. You can possibly see Cape buffaloes, Rothschild’s giraffes, Uganda kob, hartebeest and waterbucks. You may also spot oribi, bushbuck, Bohor reedbuck, shy sitatunga, bush duiker, warthog and bush pig. Large carnivores including lions, leopards and spotted hyenas like to make an appearance, too.
You will return to your lodge for a late breakfast and some relaxation before setting off in the afternoon for a boat cruise on the placid Victoria Nile, upstream, to the base of the falls. The boat stops just feet from the “Devil’s Cauldron” for pictures to be taken. You will return to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 3: Visit to the top of the Falls and travel back to Kampala
After your breakfast, nature and community walk, you will have a chance of spotting other primates like the red tail and blue monkeys who hang out with many more species of birds. Proceed to Kampala after your memorable experience with stories to share.
