3 Days / 2 Nights

This 3-days Murchison Falls Safari offers gratifying experiences of the river Nile and the ecosystem of wildlife and birds in Murchison Falls National Park.

On this short wildlife safari, you will see many animals including lions, leopards, crocodiles, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, hippos, buffaloes as well as various antelopes and hundreds of bird species.

This wildlife safari starts and ends in Kampala. Your main destination is Murchison Falls National Park but you will pass by Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary where you can see Uganda’s rhinos and walk with them in the wild.

We will then proceed to Murchison Falls and explore the park’s wild savannah as well as the Falls and Nile on a boat cruise. The Nile itself hosts one of Africa’s densest hippos and crocodile populations & a dazzling variety of water birds including the world’s most accessible wild population of the rare shoe-bill.

The Stretch of the Victoria Nile provides one of Uganda’s most remarkable wildlife spectacles. You get to see the Nile squeeze through a 7 – 8 meter wide gorge plunging with a thundering roar into the “Devil’s Cauldron” creating a trademark rainbow.

There is a chance to land a massive catch of the Nile perch which lives within strong currents and highly oxygenated water near Murchison Falls.

This wildlife safari trip has many engaging activities for both big and smaller groups. It is also perfect for a short ‘weekend in the wild’ getaway. Take a look at the detailed day-by-day itinerary breakdown to get a better idea of how this would work for you.

As with all our safari packages, we can customize the program to fit your personal preferences. Just reach out to us and we’ll be eager to help you.
