Murchison Falls National Park

This 6-day Uganda Safari Adventure goes trekking for endangered mountain gorillas, game viewing, chimpanzee tracking, and on boat cruises in some of Uganda’s top national parks.

Beginning from Kampala, we travel to Masindi town via the Ziwa Rhino Project, stopping to visit the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. At the sanctuary, we go rhino trekking to see the only rhinos in the country – a highlight of our Ugandan Safari.

After lunch, we head to Murchison, set at the top of the Murchison Falls with panoramic views of the Victoria Nile section of the White Nile. At the Falls the river plummets 45 meters into the gorge below! We admire the Nile River as it passes through a seven-meter canyon at the roaring falls, forming rainbows in the misty spray above.

On day two we explore Murchison Falls National Park in search of Africa’s wildlife, including elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, Rothschild’s giraffe, hyenas, and numerous crocodiles and hippos. The national park is also home to various antelopes, such as hartebeest, waterbuck, Oribi, bushbuck, and reedbuck.

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 and other wild animals including elephants, waterbuck, and Uganda Kob found along this 17 km stretch of river.

Day three is spent driving south to Kibale Forest National Park.

Day four starts early, with chimpanzee tracking in Kibale National Park, home to an impressive 500 chimpanzees. The dense jungles of Kibale Park are the best place to view chimpanzees in Africa.

This national park is home to numerous forest wildlife species, boasting one of the highest concentrations of primates in the world. The 13 primate species include rare I’Hoest monkeys, black-and-white colobus, and Uganda red colobus monkeys, red-tailed and blue monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabeys, and bush babies.

In the afternoon we travel south to the Queen Elizabeth National Park, taking in the sights and looking out for the game as we drive.

Day five begins with a morning game drive in Queen Elizabeth Park, exploring the area of Kasenyi Plains and Queens Mile, near Lake George. Wildlife sightings include plenty of Ugandan kob, elephants, lions, buffalo, waterbuck, warthogs, and various birds.

The rewarding four-hour drive brings us to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the evening. Bwindi Park is home to the endangered African Mountain Gorillas, along with a rich diversity of wild animals, insects, and plants. Inhabitants include various other primate species, such as the blue and red-tailed monkeys.

Day six starts with an early morning breakfast, before meeting up with our official guide from the Uganda Wildlife Authority, for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of trekking mountain gorillas in the wild. We head off into the dense vegetation of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, famous for endangered gorilla trekking.

Trekking these endangered gorillas is the highlight of visiting Uganda, considered one of the most remarkable wildlife encounters on earth.

The gorilla trek can take up to six hours, so a reasonable degree of fitness and a sturdy pair of walking shoes are required. Encountering these giant apes is one of Africa’s rarest and most poignant wildlife experiences.

Each gorilla encounter is unique, offering its own rewards. We generally get up close to the adult gorillas to watch them feeding, grooming, and resting, as well as witnessing the young gorillas at play. Later return to Kampala, visiting Igongo Cultural village en route. Here we learn about the Bahima and Ankole cultures of Uganda, finding out about the history of these interesting people.

Arrive back in Kampala and Entebbe in time to catch onward flights, bringing this 6-day Uganda Wildlife Safari Adventure to a close. Airport drop-offs can be arranged free of charge if you are flying out on the last day of the safari.
