Game drive in Murchison Falls National Park

Now, this is it! Today you wake up early for a game drive in what is now known as Uganda’s wild animal kingdom.
Your day will start as early as 6:00 am as wild animals are most active in the morning. The morning game drive will reward you with sightings of some of the most fascinating wildlife Uganda has to offer: elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, lions, leopards and a variety of antelope and bird species that roam this park.
After lunch in the afternoon, you will take a boat safari up the River Nile to Murchison Falls, the centrepiece of the park. Here you whet your eyes with sightings of crocodiles, buffaloes, water birds, monkeys and all the other thirsty animals seeking permanent water sources such as the Nile. The highlight, however, will be the base of the Murchison Falls, which rise 43 metres high before creating a magical, thunderous roar.
As the sun sets, you’ll take a hike to the top of the waterfalls for magnificent views of the park’s captivating landscapes and spectacular photo opportunities.
