4 DAY WILDLIFE, CHIMPS AND BIRDS IN MURCHISON FALLS NP

This is our 4-day safari which starts and finishes in Kampala. This safari is best done as a group but can also be done as a private trip.

Murchison Falls National Park with the meandering Victoria Nile and the dramatic Murchison Falls is Uganda’s largest protected area, providing a stunning semi arid habitat for a variety of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, giraffe and lion. The launch trip to the bottom of the Falls is unforgettable, both to experience this mighty river and to see the crocodiles, hippos and birds that bask on its banks. In the nearby Budongo Forest track chimpanzees and go bird watching.
