This 4 days Uganda Camping Safari starts and finishes in Kampala taking you through Murchison Falls National Park, the largest park in Uganda and one of the best scenic parks in Africa. This safari is available on both scheduled and tailormade basis.

This Uganda safari takes you through the Murchison Falls National Park which is among the must-be-visited destinations in Uganda. Murchison falls is Uganda’s largest national park protecting a large chunk of untamed African savannah. The park is bisected into two by the Mighty River Nile which is the second world’s longest river.

The park derives its name from the dramatic Murchison Falls formed at the point where the world's longest river explodes violently through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 43m below. The park has got a number of wild animals in large numbers which include hippos, elephants, and antelopes among others. The launch trip to the bottom of the fall is quite an unforgettable experience which you should not miss while on the safari. The safari will also involve you in primate tracking in the Kaniyo-Pabidi forest as well as bird watching.
