3 Days and 2 Nights to Murchison Falls National Park: Our Murchison Falls Adventure Safari does exactly what it says.

DAY ONE: Arrival - Entebbe - Kampala - 42km.
On arrival at the airport, you will be warmly welcomed by your representative from Real Great Apes Safaris Ltd who will then transfer you to Kampala for the overnight.

DAY TWO: Kampala - Murchison Falls National Park. 300km North West of Kampala (approx. 6 hour drive).

An early departure - but well worth it! After breakfast, you are on your way North to Murchison Falls National Park having a break at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary in Nakasongola to view the Rhinos. Uganda’s Rhinos became extinct in the early 1980s, after a period of civil unrest and heavy poaching. This sanctuary has now been established to breed black and white rhino, and restore Rhino populations in Uganda’s protected areas in a later stage.
This is a long drive as you travel north through the country and once you reach the Nile in the heart of the Park, you will cross on the ferry to Paraa.

The sight of the Nile River, the world's longest river, winding its way through the park and plunging through a narrow gap is unforgettable.
Overnight at either Red Chill Rest Camp or any other lodge around.

Day THREE: Murchison Falls.

After breakfast, you will go for an early morning game drive to the rolling plains where you have chances of viewing Lions, Giraffe, Hartebeest, Buffalo and Elephant as well as many of the other mammals of the park. For the birders amongst you, these areas support the Secretary Bird, Black Chested Snake Eagle, Tawny and Marshal Eagles Carmine and Swallow Tailed Bee-Eaters, to pick just a few. This is a beautiful drive across Borassus Palm Forest and grassland savannah down to Lake Albert where the Albert Nile heads north to the Sudan.

In the afternoon, go for a boat trip to the foot of Murchison Falls where the Nile thunders through a small 7-meter gap, or down river to the delta where the Nile empties into Lake Albert. This is an experience not to be missed! The banks of the Nile are home to many species. You may see huge Nile Crocodiles, big Pods of Hippos and other wildlife that may come down to drink from the river. In the afternoon you make a boat safari towards the Murchison Falls. Carefully watched by crocodiles, hundreds of hippos, buffaloes, water birds, apes and all the other thirsty wildlife that the Nile attracts you go to the bottom of the 43 meters high and famous Murchison Falls, which approaches you with a thunderous sound. Over night at Red Chill Rest Camp or any other Safari lodge around.
