Verdant Landscapes and Abundant Game. Float the Nile River in Search of Rare Birds. Witness the Mighty Murchison Falls of the Nile.
Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest park, named for the dramatic Murchison Falls where the Nile, the world’s longest river, explodes violently through a narrow cliff in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 120 feet below. This impressive park protects 1500 square miles of untamed African savannah bisected by the mighty Nile River.
The river is home to one of Africa’s highest hippo and crocodile populations as well as a dazzling array of water birds, including the world’s most accessible population of the rare and elusive shoebill stork. The lush borassus grassland to the north of the river offers frequent sightings of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, a wide variety of antelopes and sometimes even an encounter with lions or leopard. The Budongo Forest in the southeast part of the park provides a lush tropical habitat for chimpanzees, monkeys and many other rainforest species.
During your 3 night safari you will be taken on game drives, as well as a memorable boat cruise up the Nile River to the foot of the Falls where the whole of the Nile River is forced into a gap only 25 feet wide, the immense force of the water and the views of the Falls are awe inspiring from the close up viewing points. Game viewing and bird-watching along the banks of the river is excellent, with many species coming to the water’s edge to drink. Also included is a cruise downstream to the Nile Delta by boat to enjoy the game from the river.
