3 Days Murchison Falls Uganda Safari

Per Person



The Murchison Falls National Park is the largest park in Uganda; covering 3,893 square kilometers in northwestern Uganda. It is one of the best places to be in the country; owing to the fact that there are 76 mammal species and over 451 bird species here. A game drive through the open savannah is the ultimate adventure of your 3 days Murchison Falls Safari.

Expect to encounter a wide range of animals like Elephants, Lions, Zebras, Nubian Giraffes, Monkeys and Buffaloes among many others. Prominent bird species here include; the Shoebill stork, Papyrus Gonolek, Great Blue Turaco and even rare species like the Puvel’s Illadopsis. Such abundance of wildlife is only fit for our Murchison Falls safari in Uganda.

Not forgetting the Majestic Falls; from which the park draws its name. This powerful waterfall is undeniably one of the most beautiful nature spots and one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world. At some point, you will only hear the intense clash of water against rock as the Victoria Nile falls over the Rift Valley edge and at another point, it will be the sweet serenade of the birds here!

8:00 am to 5:00 pm

By about 7:00 am, you shall already be on your way to northwestern Uganda for the 3 days Murchison Falls safari. Our guide will pick you up immediately after breakfast to transfer and get you settled in for the road trip. The journey often lasts about 6 – 7 hours as you drive through the seemingly cramped city centers and into the open country.

Uganda is a place of lush green fields and you will be able to witness this on your trip. Many villages are characterized by open green expanses of land and herds of animals grazing on them. The first stop on this Murchison Falls Uganda safari will be at Masindi where you will have your lunch en-route before proceeding to your destination.

Upon arrival at Murchison Falls National Park Uganda, you will be greeted by a scenic drive towards the top of the falls. The roar of River Nile can be heard from miles away and some animals such as Baboons and Warthogs can be encountered along this path as well.  Step out of your vehicle and take in the spectacular scenery here then proceed to check into your lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

Meeting the residents of this amazing savannah arena can be humbling and if you are in luck, you might be able to witness some predator – prey action. After your morning game drive, retreat to your lodge within the late morning and mid-afternoon hours to relax, have lunch and prepare for the afternoon adventure.
