Tour itinerary :

Day One:

 

Meet and greet at 0630hrs from your residence in Kampala. Begin the scenic drive to Murchison Falls with a visit to the Rhino sanctuary. On arrival in the park, proceed for a forest walk in Pabidi Forest in search of chimpanzees. Other primates resident in this forest include l’ hoestes, red colobus, blues, red tailed monkeys and grey cheeked mangabeys.

 


The guide will provide detailed explanations, not only about primates, but also on all the forest flora and fauna and will ensure that your walk is both informative and enjoyable. This walk is excellent for bird watching and for seeing primates at close quarters. Drive to your accommodation for overnight.

 

 

Day Two:

On the early morning game drive, you may see Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, Giraffe, Hartebeests and many more. In the afternoon, proceed for a boat trip on the placid Victoria Nile, upstream, to the base of the Falls. En route you will see hippos, crocodiles, water buck and a wide variety of birds like the unusual shoebill stork. The boat stops just tens of meters from the "Devil’s Cauldron". Take pictures of the photogenic and majestic Murchison Falls.


 

Disembark from the boat and take a hike to the Top of the Falls where you can see the Nile's beauty perfected!! Marvel at the Nile, compressing from 50 meters to squeeze through a 6-metre canyon dropping 40 meters with a thunderous roar creating a beautiful rainbow, a plume of spray and the best thing that happened to the Nile..."the Murchison Falls".

 

Day Three:

Have another morning game drive to search for more game and birds. Thereafter transfer to Chobe with a game drive en route.
