Full description
Day 1: Kampala to Murchison Falls National Park, Boat Trip (Lunch and Dinner) Your tour begins as you set off from your accommodation at 6:30AM on your 2-day safari to Uganda’s biggest national park. Driving along the Kampala-Gulu Highway, you'll briefly stop over in the Luwero District for refreshments such as fruit and water. Once at at the Murchison Falls National Park, drive to the top of the falls where you receive views of the magnificent Nile as it squeezes through a narrow gorge roughly 7 meters wide. Following the falls, set off for lunch before proceeding to a 2:30PM wildlife cruise on the River Nile. This will see you take a relaxing ride of about 3.5 hours throughout which you get to enjoy up-close sightings of a number of wildlife that lie along the banks of River Nile. This wildlife includes hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, elephants, monitor lizards, warthogs, and a cocktail of birds such as African fish eagles, red-throated bee eaters, skimmers, cattle egrets, the rare shoebill stork, and more. The boat ride takes you to the bottom of the Murchison Falls for another quite remarkable sight of these wild falls, and at the conclusion of your cruise you'll return to your lodge for dinner and to rest. Day 2: Game Drive, Travel to Kampala (Breakfast and Lunch) Wake up for an early morning breakfast at around 6:00AM before setting out for an early game drive by 6:30AM. This timing is appropriate for catching the nocturnal and hunters before they retire to their hideouts for the day. Explore the major game tracks of Queen and Albert for spectacular sightings of wildlife such as elephants, lions, giraffes, antelopes, jackals, hyenas, Uganda kobs, oribis, buffalo, waterbucks, Jackson's Hartebeests, bushbucks, and hopefully the elusive leopard, among others. Four hours after the unforgettable wildlife experience, check-out of the park and start your return journey to Kampala. On your return journey you may choose to stop over at the Kabalega Diner on the Kampala/Gulu highway for lunch.
