No visit to Uganda would be complete without a visit to the magnificent Murchison Falls National Park renowned for its scenic beauty and the spectacular falls, from which the park derives its name. Murchison Falls has abundant flora and fauna to delight the visitor. From rolling savannah and tall grasslands to thick bush and woodlands, the diversity of this park never ceases to amaze visitors and residents alike.

Please have an early breakfast in readiness to be picked from your hotel at 7.00am, followed by a drive to Murchison Falls NP passing through beautiful woodlands and Savannah grasslands. There will be interesting stops along the way; including snacks and then we proceed straight to the park, to the accommodation facility for check-in: Murchison River Lodge (thatched safari tent); where you will also relax and have your lunch then take the rest of the day at leisure while enjoying the lodge’s facilities.

In the evening you have the option of going for an evening game drive or relax and enjoy the hotel facilities.

Wake up early with a snack and set off on a Sunrise game drive (about 6.30am) in the Nyamsika plateau, while on the game drive, Cape buffalo, Rothschild's giraffe, Uganda kob, hartebeest and waterbuck are commonly seen. You may also spot oribi, bushbuck, Bohor reedbuck, shy sitatunga, bush duiker, warthog and Bush pig plus large carnivores including lions, leopards and spotted hyenas.

Chimpanzees and olive baboons head the list of six species of primates found in the park. Crocodilesand hippos will be seen along the banks of the Nile. Some of the more common birds that can be seen include goliath heron, Egyptian geese, pelican, bee-eaters, kingfishers, hornbill, cormorant, saddle-bill stork and the rare shoebill stork. After the game drive, you will return to the lodge for lunch there after you will relax.

After lunch at 2.00pm, proceed for a boat trip on the placid Victoria Nile, upstream, to the base of the falls. En route you will see hippos, crocodiles, water buck and a wide variety of birds like the unusual shoebill stork.

The boat stops just tens of meters from the "Devil’s Cauldron". From here you will disembark andtake a hike to the top of the falls where your vehicle will be waiting for you for pick up. The nature walk provides an awesome experience, as you will experience the Majestic Murchison falls forming into an impressive rainbow. The fantastic view as the Nile River narrows from 50 metres to crash through a 7 metre gorge, falling 45 metres to the rocks below is breath-taking. Thereafter we shall return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
