Wildlife, Big Game, Boat Trip | 4 Days, 3 Nights
From: US$1995, All Inclusive
Thunderous, explosive and completely spectacular, Murchison Falls is the world’s most powerful waterfall. Formed as the mighty Nile squeezes through a seven-metre gap in the Albertine Rift Escarpment, the body of roaring water is mind-blowing from all angles. You’ll take a boat to the base and watch the water crashing down as animals drink, apparently nonplussed on the banks, or hike to the top for the angel’s view. The park itself is Uganda’s oldest and largest conservation area and leopard, lion, buffalo and elephant can all be found as well as the elusive shoebill. You’ll also complete the big 5 animal list tick off when you visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary.
- Meet the last white Rhinos in Africa at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

You will be picked up from either a hotel or the Entebbe Airport and be briefed about your tour by your driver/guide. After the briefing you will depart for Murchison Falls National Park. The highlights of this park include; the roaring rapids of the Murchison, the rolling plains teaming with lion, giraffe, hartebeest, buffalo, elephant, the large concentration of hippo and crocodile and over 450 bird species including the elusive shoebill stork.
Along your drive you will visit the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary where you can experience these endangered giants up close. You will stop for lunch in Masindi Town and then continue your drive to the Paraa Safari Lodge where you will check-in, enjoy dinner and your overnight stay.
You’ll be staying at: Paraa Safari Lodge/Bakers Lodge FB — Days 1 to 4 (3 Nights)
After breakfast you will drive to the top of the Murchison Falls. The top of the fall is a magnificent spot where the Nile water compresses into a narrow gorge and falls down through a 7 meter canyon forming a thunderous roar and a beautiful rainbow in a plume of water spray. A true wonder of the Nile River! You may also choose to go for a bonus game drive in the park instead. After enjoying the spectacular view of the falls or your morning game drive you will check-out of the lodge and make your way back to Entebbe for your flight home.
Note: We do recommend for a late afternoon/evening outbound flight on this day.
