Your 3 days Uganda tour to Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda’s largest and the most famous national park. This park is located in northwestern Uganda and covers an area of about 3840 square kilometres and it was gazetted as a game reserve in 1926. The 3 days safari to this park allows you to explore its spectacular savanna grasslands and the Victoria Nile which flows dividing it into 2 parts-the northern and southern bank. It also offers you a great opportunity to look out most of its bird species that make up a total of about 450 avian species, 76 species of mammals and the mighty Murchison waterfalls and many other incredible wildlife species.

Tour Highlights

  • Transfer from Kampala to Murchison Falls National Park
  • Game drive and a launch cruise along the Nile

The main destination of this tour is Murchison Falls National Park, where the already quite wide Nile squeezes through a 7 m narrow point. Already this spectacle would be worth a trip, but of course there are zebras, antelopes, buffalos, giraffes, lions, hyenas and much more. Another highlight is located on the way to Murchison Falls, Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, a very heavily guarded sanctuary dedicated to the breeding of rhinos – very successful by the way.
