Look forward to the remarkable journey to Murchison Falls NP in the morning after breakfast.

These creatures used to roam the plains of northern Uganda but were extinct from poaching. There are efforts for breeding so that they can be re-introduced into the wild.

The highlight of this trip is game viewing in our custom made vehicles. Anticipate to capture good pictures as you move along, Giraffes as they move through the grasslands, Hartebeest, buffaloes, Uganda Kobs etc. After this magical experience return to your lodge for lunch. In the afternoon look forward to the famed boat Safari on River Nile from where you shall watch different animals along the shore and continue to about ten metres from the bottom of Murchison falls – also known as ‘Devils cauldron”. This fulfilling boat cruise cannot be found anywhere in Africa with the variety of wild animals and birds.

We drive to the top of Murchison falls where 1 km wide Nile is forced into a 7 meter gap to a thunderous roar – known as the most powerful falls. There is a resident beautiful rainbow formed making a contrast with the crashing water. After the experience we proceed to Kampala.
