This awesome three days tour will bring you close to the fierce Big5, the primates of Budongo forest, the amazing strong waterfalls and many more great adventures in Uganda’s oldest and largest park, Murchison falls national park. The park sustains a large concentration of wildlife due to its endowment with different habitats ranging from grasslands, wood land, forest, acacia savanna, borassus palms and water.
This 3 day trip seems short but it is very rewarding when it comes to wildlife sightings and unique adventures. You will experience Chimpanzee tracking in Budongo forest, view herds of animals during the game drives and the boat ride on the Nile, track and get close to the Rhinos in the wild at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, a walk/hike to clearly see the top of the majestic waterfalls, see lots of birds and plant species plus alot more.
Day 1 – Transfer to Murchison falls Park, Rhino tracking and Top of the falls tour.
At 7.00am we begin our journey, driving to Murchison falls Park with a first stop at Ziwa Sanctuary for a thrilling encounter with one of Africa’s Big Five, the Rhinos. We shall have lunch after Rhino tracking and later continue with our drive to the park. A lot of amazing things await as you drive into this extensive jungle. You will be treated to a cool breeze and panoramic views of the beautiful Budongo Forest on your way to the top of the Murchison falls. As you enjoy the cool fresh air and the views of Budongo Forest, you will find Baboons lining up along the dirt road as if to say ‘welcome to their home’.
That won’t be the case, they are always on standby to snatch the eats you may have in the car, please keep the windows sealed. Don’t be tempted by their seductive behaviours to throw eats/fruits at them, feeding of animals in the national parks is strictly prohibited.
You will finally reach the top of the Murchison falls where you will be amazed by how the calm waters of the river turn into such a dramatic scene with a very loud but pleasant roar. The Nile River with all its volume of water forces itself through a narrow gorge plunging 45m forming a heavy pool down. After observing these beautiful falls, drive to your lodge for dinner and overnight.
Day 2 – Early morning Game drive, afternoon Boat Cruise, evening game drive.
With a fresh steaming cup of tea or coffee, we will set out for an early morning game drive, a great opportunity for an amazing game viewing experience. Expect to see buffaloes, jackals, elephants, many antelopes, giraffes, many birds, among others. We return to the lodge for a full breakfast, rest or refresh in a swimming pool and later after lunch, take a cruise on the Victoria Nile for aquatic game viewing. Giant crocodiles, hippos, birds are a common sighting during the boat cruise. Elephants and other animals too, throng the water banks to refresh after grazing. An evening game drive will wrap up our day of adventure.
Day 3 – Chimpanzee tracking at Budongo Forest and depart for Kampala.
After breakfast, we check out of the lodge and drive to Budongo Forest still with in Murchison falls park. After a short briefing, we shall ascend to the beautiful Budongo forest in search of the amazing Chimpanzees. After an hour with them, leave the forest to your waiting car and drive out of the park.
You will have some hot lunch in Masindi town and later embark on the smooth drive back to Kampala. Drop off will be at your preferred place in Kampala/Entebbe and that will mark the end of the 3 days escape to the jungles of Murchison falls Park.
