3Days / 2 Nights Murchison Falls National Park




MFNP offers everything you would expect of top class African destination. This safari takes a tour group to see wildlife in Murchison Falls National Park. A must- experience during a visit to Murchison falls national park is an 11km boat trip past all manner of great creatures and giant tamarind trees to the foot of the falls. Murchison is the largest of all national parks in Uganda (about 3,893sq.Km). It offers some of the spectacular scenery not found any where in Uganda. While there, participate in the Launch/boat cruise on the Victoria Nile, see the great enthralling game including the Crocodiles, Buffalos, Hippos, Leopards, Giraffes, Lions and many more while on the game drives. Track baboons and monkeys in the Sambiya forest before returning to Kampala.

Destinations:Murchison Falls, Budongo Forest and Luwero Triangle

Safari duration: 3 days/ 2 Nights


Day 1:

At 7:00AM in the morning, depart for Murchison Falls National Park from Kampala,

through Uganda’s beautiful green undulating countryside via Masindi town to Para-

Murchison Lookout for baboons as birds whistle. Have late lunch at Sambiya River

Lodge. In the evening, take a nature walk to the top of the falls.

Murchison falls is the most stunning attraction; a point where the waters of the

mighty Nile squeeze and burst majestically through, a 7metre gorge to an awesome

45m plunge producing a thunderous roar and forming a beautiful rainbow you’ll most

certainly find no where in Africa. See Monitor lizards and get a chance of standing at

a point where it rains throughout the year. Please come with your binoculars to enjoy


Dinner & Overnight: Chobe Safari Lodge, Paara Safari Lodge, Nile Safari Lodge, Sambiya River Lodge or Red Chill (FB)

Day 2

Early morning at 6:00am, go for an enthralling game drive in the northern Sector of

the park. Enjoy the cool breeze on the ferry while crossing the Nile before starting on

Buligi circuit. Look out for Elephants, Lions, Buffalos, Giraffes, Hartebeests and many

more wild animals. Take lunch while having spectacular views of the Nile at Sambiya

River Lodge.


At 2:00 pm, go for a launch/boat cruise on Victoria Nile to the base of the Murchison

falls; en-route expect to see a spectacular showcase as hippos languish on sand

banks, crocodiles rest on riverside, baboons play in groups on the banks, families of

elephants trundle to the water for a drink, a wide variety of bird species- the rare

Shoebill stork is ‘a must see’. The boat stops just a stone throw from the “Devils

Cauldron”, an excellent opportunity to take fantastic pictures of the majestic

Murchison Falls. Cruise time; 2-3hrs. Don’t forget the rightful lenses of your camera

to enable you take bird photographs.

Dinner & Overnight: Chobe Safari Lodge, Paara Safari Lodge, Nile Safari Lodge, Sambiya River Lodge or Red Chill (FB)

is an experience you must not miss.Please come with your binoculars to enjoy

more. After the forest walk, take lunch as you proceed to Kampala arriving late

evening with lots of memories and experience.
