Murchison Falls National Park (MFNP)

Murchison Falls Park is the largest National Park in Uganda. It is a comfortable 5 hours drive from Kampala mostly on tarred roads or good gravel roads. The park has an area of 3840 km2. Murchison Falls Park is bisected by the River Nile, which divides the park into the northern and southern parts. The mighty river Nile flows over the Western Rift Valley escarpment between Lake Kyoga and Lake Albert, and falls 43 m over a 7 meter gap that forms the fantastic Murchison Falls, a spectacle when you go on safari here.

Together with Queen Elizabeth NP, the park is the most important sanctuary for wildlife, game and other animals. A boat cruise upstream to the top of the falls provides an unforgettable experience. The falls can also be viewed from the top.

On the Northern banks is typical savannah which hosts and is habitat to most of the game and wildlife that can be viewed in Murchison Falls Park. The boat cruise is perhaps the most prominent activity in the park and one of the great experiences in Africa. The abundant game that includes elephants, Rothschild's giraffes, buffalo's, Nile crocodiles and many birds, come to the river banks to drink in the afternoon African sun and can be clearly and spectacularly seen from the boat. If you prefer you can dismebark from the boat and hike up to the top of the falls. Splendid awesome views, just!

Highlights: boat cruise on the River Nile - The Rothschild's giraffes - abundant game - fishing at the foot of the falls. night camping on the northern bank.

Day 2- Murchison Falls National Park-then return to Kampala.

After an early morning breakfast, you have the chance for a  morning of game drives in the park!  The best area for game-viewing on the north bank is the peninsula between the Victoria and the Albert Niles. It's known for abundant wildlife and has several game drive tracks including the Buligi track, Victoria track, Queen's track and Albert Nile track. You get to see the Uganda Kob, the oribi, the Jackson’s hartebeest, buffalos, elephants, lions, tigers. North of the Nile is where you find the typical palm savannah which hosts beautiful Rothschild's giraffes, large herds of buffalo and elephants.

The afternoon will be spent on a beautiful picturesque cruise on the Nile by boat . The boat cruise takes you upstream towards the splurging Falls. This is where the Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and cascades down to become a calm river. On the banks of the Nile river will be the large number of hippos, elephants and the Nile crocodiles. Prominently January and February are very enriching viewing opportunities for Nile crocodiles since this is the breading season. The launch trip is a unique adventure, full of on the water activity and memorable game viewing surprises!

After the boat cruise, we return to Kampala.
