Overview of the 4 days Uganda wildlife safari to Murchison Falls National Park

This remarkable 4 days Uganda wildlife safari to Murchison Falls National Park offers you the best adventure, game drive, birding, boat cruise, chimpanzee trekking and Rhino tracking moments in Uganda’s largest safari park. The safari features Rhino tracking in the adjacent Ziwa Rhino sanctuary which is the only wild home to Rhinos in Uganda and chimpanzee trekking in Budongo forest.

Murchison Falls National park splendidly positions its self as the largest and oldest park in Uganda occupying a geographical area of 3,893 km² spread in the vast dotted savannah plains of northern Uganda. The rushing waters of the Nile river forcefully squeeze through an 8m gorge cascading 45m down over a rift valley wall that no one can afford to miss to see on a Uganda safari. This is the best spot for thunderous pours of the Nile waters and the most amazing that creates the most powerful waterfall on the earth’s face. From this point, the cascade drains the energy of the river and the waters calmly flow northwards.

Away from the waters, be ready to gaze in wonder at the herds of giraffes, families of Elephants, schools of hippos, cruise past Nile crocodiles, several other animals and elusive birds like the shoebill stork.
