Day 2: The Source of the river Nile

After breakfast drive to Jinja, this is the second largest town in Uganda. It is characterized by the Asian quarters, the brewery industries and the colorful gardens.

Day 3: The Sippi Falls


After early breakfast go for nature walk to the Sippi Falls, four spectacular waterfalls on the river Sippi, which originates from Mount Elgon. The starting point is from Crow’s Nest, a camping and lodging site which organizes community projects and training of local guides. You will see the caves and the plantations of coffee, matooke and sugar cane. We ensure that you have packed lunch for the day. In the evening return to Mbale, for dinner and overnight at Mount Elgon Hotel (C, B). FB


Day 4: The rhinos of Ziwa sanctuary


After breakfast leave Mbale for Murchison Falls National Park via Kampala. On a panoramic drive Northwest you stop at Ziwa Rhinos sanctuary for a nature walk to see rhinos in their wild, a unique experience of Uganda. The journey is long but enjoyable as you go through the typical Ugandan homestead and farms. Dinner and overnight at Masindi Hotel (C) or Court View Hotel (B). FB

Day 5: The marvelous Murchison Falls


After breakfast proceed to Murchison Falls National Park, the largest protected area in Uganda, with 3.840 Kms, which is named after the falls on the Victoria Nile. Relax a bit at a situated site on the top of the spectacular falls, where you can see the Nile’s perfected beauty, and marvel as it compresses and squeezes itself from over 1 kilometer wide down through an 8 meter canyon. The 43 meter drop of the falls creates a thunderous roar and a beautiful rainbow in a plume of spray – the best thing to ever happen to the Nile. Lunch at Paraa Safari Lodge with unique view on the Nile. In the evening embark on a game drive on the Northern bank where you will be able to spot elephants, lions, cape buffalos, Rothschild’s giraffes, hartebeests, waterbucks, oribi, bushbucks, spotted hyenas and, if you are lucky, leopards.
