Murchison falls National Park is Uganda's largest game park measuring 3840sqkm of land. The park is loacted North of Kampala and is most popular for its diversity of animal and bird species immersed in sprawling wooden savannahs mainly south of the park while the open savannah grasslands north of the park is famous for the borassus palm trees and acacia trees. The park also boasts of the River Nile which crosses through the Murchison falls National Park. The park is a host to several wildlife like the Buffaloes, lions, hippos, giraffes, leopards, antelopes like the waterbucks, jackson's heartbeasts and many more.
During your 3 days Murchison Falls wildlife safari, you will visit or even hike to the iconic Murchison Falls for breath taking views of these beautiful falls showcasing its daily rainbow and thonderous blasts way into the Nile. The boat ride on the Nile River is ideal for great wildlife spotting like the black & white colobous monkeys, crocodiles sun bathing and finally go for a game drive to explore more of the the wildlife in the open savannahs.
After your early morning breakfast, our company driver/guide will meet with you at 7:00 am and will brief you on your 3 days Murchison falls wildlife safari Uganda package, then start-off with the 6 hours’ drive to Uganda's biggest national park (Murchison falls National Park).
We shall have a stopover in Luwero District to pick a couple of fruits, like oranges, pineapples, passion fruits and or jackfruits. Then proceed to for lunch at the Kabalega Dinners or Masindi town for our lunch at either Masindi Hotel or Court View Hotel.
After lunch, then drive out of Masindi town to a dirt road for about 20 minutes and get to Murchison falls National Park. After clearance at the park entry, the fun or trip then officially begins. You are immediately ushered into the wildlife park by a number of stubborn baboons lining up along the road. They grapple about anticipating for some goodies, ensure the windscreens are up else they will snatch anything inviting from the car.
Continue the drive as you savour the beautiful landscape while occasionally sighting warthogs and other wildlife species. The sightings at the top of the falls are breath taking with about 300 - 400 cubic meters per second of Nile water force through a tiny gorge of about 7 meters to plunge into a violent tempest in a whirlpool about 42 meters below. It is such a beautiful sight with incredible picture moments here.
After the hike drive to your lodge and check in for dinner and overnight. And for all accommodations on the Northern bank, we shall have an evening game drive.
After your early morning breakfast at around 6:30 am, our driver guide together with the game ranger picks you up at exactly 7:00 am for the early morning game drive. The early game drive is a better time for the great sightings of the nocturnal animals and hunters before they return to their hideouts as well as the early risers.
The Nile that crosses Murchison falls National Park bisects it into the South and North sections. The North section is more endowed with game compared to the south. For that matter the north is preferred for game drives. If your reserved lodge is found in the southern section, you will get to the ferry crossing to get on the Norther side for your game drive package.
Explore the major game trails especially around the area of Paraa for good game spotting including lots of elephants, lions, giraffes, antelopes, Jackals, hyenas, Uganda kobs, waterbucks, Jackson's Hartebeests and hopefully the elusive leopards among others.
At around 11:30 am you return to the lodge for your lunch and some relaxation for an indefinitely short time. Later we set out for the afternoon Boat Ride on the Victoria Nile which is the high spot of any Murchison Falls Safari for you to spot lots of wildlife species at a close and clear encounter.
You will have to spot lots of hippos, Nile crocodiles, elephants, buffaloes, and many other animals that come to drink water, refresh and cool themselves off the scorching sun and some animals to eat the fresh grass along the river banks.
The Nile is also a birds' magnet. You will also be shown the crush point of Ernest Hemingway. The ride takes you close to the base of the Murchison Falls and here you are treated to yet another sight of these lovely falls. You could hike to the top of the falls before the return ride, then return back to the lodge for your dinner and overnight.
