Murchison Falls Safari (3 days)


Explore the one and only natural home to the southern white rhinoceros in Uganda, as you head to the most powerful falls on the world's longest river Nile in Murchison falls National Park, Uganda’s oldest and largest. Since the year 2005,  the 70 square kilometers Ziwa Rhino sanctuary was introduced to reinstate the rhinos back in Uganda. When you visit this sanctuary at the moment, you will explore beyond rhinos when you go on canoe tours looking for birds, other mammals, or on nature walks. In Murchison falls, you will be looking for the big five on a long list of 76 mammals including the cats and 450 bird species, on land and water in the game drives, walks, and boat cruise on the Nile. On top of Uhuru falls, you will witness the Nile being forced into a 7-meter rock curve before it forms the calm bed for memorable boat cruises.
