Day 1: Transfer to Murchison Falls National Park

Early morning, our tour guide will pick you up and transfer you to Murchison Falls National Park in North-Western Uganda. Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s oldest and largest safari park. It spans about 3800 square kilometers. When you reach the park, you will head for an afternoon boat ride to the bottom of the falls. Just next to the bottom, you will also hike to the top of the falls. On this boat, you will also get to see a lot of animals drinking water at the river banks. After this activity, you will carry out a brief evening game drive before heading to your safari lodge for an overnight.

Day 2: Morning Game Drive and Transfer to Kampala
