Kidepo Valley National Park Uganda

Departing and ending From Kampala or Entebbe, this wildlife holiday trip combines two great northern savannah parks of Uganda in one trip!  The tour begins with a drive to Kidepo Valley National Park located in the semi-arid valleys of Karamoja province on the far northern border of Uganda and Sudan.

Highlights include scenic views, visiting Karamojong tribal villages, bird watching, game drives to see buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, zebras lions, leopards, cheetah, jackals, monkey, hyena, eland, Uganda kob, caracal, etc.

After 2 fruitful days of game viewing at Kidepo Valley National Park, we proceed to Murchison Falls National Park, one of Uganda’s oldest national parks. Murchison is rated as a top safari destination in the country. The national park covers about 3 840 km² (1 480 mi²) of wild habitat in the Albertine Rift Valley, a western part of Africa’s Great Rift Valley.

The Victoria Nile river runs through the national park, plummeting through a narrow gorge to form the spectacular Murchison Falls, after which the park is named. Also known as Kabaraga Falls, Murchison Falls drops about 45m into the river after a series of rapids. Below the cascading falls the great Nile fans out into a broad and placid river flowing into Lake Albert.

Highlights of our visit at Murchison Falls National Park include a drive to the top of the White Nile at Murchison Falls and a boat cruise to watch for wildlife and birds. In Murchison Park wildlife sightings include four of the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard), giraffes, antelopes, and plenty of hippos and Nile crocodiles.

On day 5 of this Uganda wildlife safari holiday, we return to Kampala where our African adventure of a lifetime comes to a close in the early evening.
