Murchison Falls National Park

This is a short 3-day Uganda wildlife adventure to Murchison Falls National Park located 320 km North-West of Kampala in Uganda. The drive takes a 5-hour drive from Kampala.

On day one, we drive northwest 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.

Arriving at the hotel/ lodge in Murchison Falls National Park, we settle in and meet to hear more about our upcoming trip from the guide.

On day two of our Uganda Safari, we cross the River Nile on a ferry, making our way onto the northern banks of the Murchison Falls National Park. Your guide takes you in search of Africa’s wildlife, including elephants, lions, buffalo, Rothschild’s giraffe, hyena, and numerous crocodiles and hippos.

The national park is also home to various antelopes, such as hartebeest, waterbuck, Oribi, bushbuck, and reedbuck. If we are lucky we may even spot the elusive leopard in the park.

After lunch, we embark on a boat cruise on the calm waters of the Victoria Nile. Along the way, we keep an eye out for wallowing hippos and crocodiles from our boat. We may also sight other wild animals as we go, including elephants, waterbuck, and Uganda Kob found along this 17 km stretch of river.

This riverine area also hosts numerous bird species, from the Goliath heron, Egyptian goose, and pelican bee-eater, to the kingfisher, hornbill, cormorant, and rare shoebill stork.

Our boat cruise takes us to the base of the Murchison Falls, stopping tens of meters away from the “Devil’s Cauldron”. We leave the boat at the base of the falls and hike to the top of the falls, which takes about an hour.

We get to see the falls from a new perspective as we hike, admiring the world’s longest river as it courses through the narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment. Your driver and guide take you back to the lodge from the top of the falls.

On day three, we travel to Masindi town via the Ziwa Rhino Project, stopping to visit the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to the only endangered white rhino population in Uganda. At the sanctuary, we go rhino trekking to see the only rhinos in the country – a highlight on our Ugandan Safari.

Later we travel back to Kampala or Entebbe in time to catch onward flights, bringing our 3 Days 2 Nights Murchison Falls National Park Safari to a close.
