Visit the famous thundering waterfalls on the world’s longest river – the Nile, and enjoy an exhilarating game drive through the Murchison Falls National Park and see lions, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, antelopes, and elephants in their natural habitat. Murchison Falls National Park lies at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley where the sweeping Bunyoro escarpment tumbles into a vast palm-dotted Savannah. The park’s leading feature is marked by the Victoria Nile which squeezes through an 8-meter wide cleavage and plunges down through an approximately 45 meters long fall forming an amazing rainbow in the hotter hours of the day, with a stream that flows quietly across the rift valley into Lake Albert.

Early in the morning, you’ll be picked up from your lodgings in Kampala and you’ll then drive north towards Masindi. You’ll make a stop at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary home to the endangered African rhino. The sanctuary covers an area of 70 square kilometres and in addition to the rhinos is also home to over forty mammalian and reptilian species including monkeys, hippos, crocodiles, and numerous bird species. You’ll trek the sanctuary with a trained guide and see the rhinos and other animals up close. After lunch, you’ll proceed to Murchison Falls National Park, another scenic drive that will take you through the southern sector of MFNP. In the evening you’ll check into Paara Safari Lodge for dinner and much-needed rest after the long journey. Established in 1954, Paraa Safari Lodge is in Murchison Falls National Park. The lodge is located in the northwest of Uganda overlooking one of nature’s best-kept secrets, the River Nile, on its journey from its source at Lake Victoria to join Lake Albert. Travel Time: 8 Hours Activities: Rhino Trek, Scenic Drive Meal Plan: Lunch and Dinner
We’ll pick you up from the lodge early in the morning and embark on a game drive to catch the animals enjoying their morning meal. We’ll drive through the park following the instructions of an experienced guide and encounter lions, buffaloes, elephants, hippos, different kinds of antelopes, warthogs, and many species of birds and butterflies. We’ll return to the lodge to enjoy a late breakfast, explore its surroundings, and lounge by the pool. After lunch, you’ll take a boat down the Victoria Nile River to the base of the Murchison Falls. The ride takes you along the extensive papyrus-edged Victoria Nile home to many animals and birds. Expect to encounter hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, and other animals that come to the river for a drink and a dip. Activities: Wildlife Trek & Boat Cruise Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
After a delicious breakfast, we’ll drive to the top of the falls. At this point, the Victoria Nile squeezes through an 8-metre-wide gorge and plunges 43 meters with a thunderous roar into the “Devil’s Cauldron”, creating a rainbow. We’ll then drive back to Kampala with a brief stop for lunch in Masindi at Masindi Hotel, the oldest hotel in Uganda built in 1923 by the now-defunct East Africa Railways and Harbours Company. Ernest Hemingway was involved in two plane crashes at Murchison Falls and Butiaba airstrip, within the space of one week, and recuperated at Masindi Hotel.
