5 Days Murchison Falls and Kibale Forest National Parks Safari

DAY 1: From Kampala, travel to Masindi passing traditional farms and villages en-route. If you would like, ask your driver to stop along the way in order to interact with the local people. After a re-fuelling stop in Masindi town, proceed to Sambiya River Lodge in Murchison Falls N.P. for lunch.  Next, tour the top of the Falls, where the Nile crashes through a 6 meter gorge and falls 45 meters.  Numerous scenic viewpoints are a photographer’s delight! Dinner and overnight at picturesque Sambiya River Lodge.

 

 

DAY 2: Cross the Nile by ferry and set off on an early morning game drive. Your guide helps spot elephant, giraffe, Cape buffalo, Uganda kob and lion. After a packed lunch, take a boat cruise to the base of the majestic Murchison Falls. Crocodiles bask in the sun and hippos yawn on the way. Spectacular bird life (over 450 species) is found in the Park including the rare Shoebill stork, and you are likely to see numerous animals.

 

 

Day 3: Early morning departure to Kibale (a 10 hour drive) through villages with lunch enroute. Overnight at a facility that fits your budget.

 

 

Day 4: Leave early morning to track chimpanzees. After your forest adventure (where there are many different primates to be found), enjoy a packed lunch at Bigodi Forest Camp. In the afternoon, walk through the swamps to see primates and birds (kingfishers, hawks, Great Blue Turaco and many others reside in the swamp).

 

 

Day 5:  After breakfast depart for Kampala.
