uganda gorilla trekking, uganda vacation packages, uganda luxury safari, Murchison Falls National Park

This short safari explores Uganda’s largest park bisected by the River Nile, its dramatic falls, the delta into Lake Albert, the scenic Western Rift Valley escarpment. The highlight of your safari is the boat trip on the River Nile to the base of the Falls, which offers spectacular game viewing with plenty of bird watching opportunities. You will join other travellers on a scheduled departure to Murchison Falls. First Class camping on top of the falls!

Day 1: Kisubi - Masindi - Butiaba - Murchison Falls NP You will depart after breakfast for Murchison Falls NP and travel via Masindi, Butiaba and Bulisa. Masindi is a small town which played once an important economic role during the colonial period. You will have a pic nic 40 km out of Masindi at the Busingiro Tourist site which is part of Budongo Forest Reserve not far from Butiaba. After lunch you will continue our trip to Butiaba (Lake Albert) where you can view the wreck of the Robert Corringdon Steam Ship, which was used to carry cargo and passengers from the Congo to Uganda. Palm lined sand covered roads, sandy beaches with canoes give a picturesque view, which has changed very little in the last century. We continue north to Bulisa, this is a fascinating ride with varied scenery all the way. You will explore the western escarpment of the Western Rift Valley (Albertine Rift) and Lake Albert. The northen Park entrance is not far from Bulisa. We camp on the South bank on the top of the falls.(B-L-D)

Day 2: Parks & places Murchison Falls National Park (MFNP) Activities Bird Watching Wildlife Viewing After an early morning breakfast, you will take the first ferry and cross the Nile for a full day of spectacular game viewing. The best area for game-viewing on the north bank is the peninsula between the Victoria and the Albert Niles. It's known for his abundant wildlife and has several tracks (Builigi track, Victoria track, Queen's trackand Albert Nile track). The Uganda kob is common here, but also the oribi and the Jackson’s hartebeest. North to the Nile you have the typical Borassus palm savannah which hosts his beautiful Rothschild's giraffes, large herds of buffalo and elephants. The afternoon will be spent on an extensive exploration by boat on the Nile river, upstream towards the Falls. This is where the Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and cascades down to become a placid river whose banks where you can admire on the slopes of the Nile river, the big number of hippos, and the Nile crocodiles on the banks. Especially January and February are very rewarding for Nile crocodiles since this is the breading season. Bird watchers will appreciate the rich bird life. The Red-throated bee-eaters breeds in large colonies along the Nile during January up to March. If you would like to hike to the top of the Falls ask you Driver-guide to make some arrangements with the Park Authorties. The boat will leave on the shore of the Nile from where you can hike towards the Falls and climb to the top along the path. Spectacular sights. Overnight on the South bank, top of the Falls.(B-L-D)

Day 3: Parks & places Murchison Falls National Park (MFNP) Activities Bird Watching Wildlife Viewing After an early breakfast, we shall cross the Nile again for a second full morning game drive in the North bank. We explore a second time the circuits and focus once again on finding lions and leopard. The patas monkeys are also worth to look after as this is the only area where you have reasonable chances to see them. Depending on the wildlife you will see we can extend our exploration to the Pakuba area near the Lodge ruins and drive towards the Tangi Gate known for the herds of elephants. We come back in the afternoon at the camp to take some time to explore the area around the top of the falls and descend the paths down to the river and enjoy the falls from another viewpoint. We take a look at the "Bats cliff" home to hundreds of fruit bats and when they emerge before nightfall they attract hawks and fish eagles. As an option you can also explore the delta and hire a private boat. The boat needs to be booked long in advance at least when booking your safari. The trip starts from Paara and brings you downstream to Lake Albert and lasts for 2 hours. The hippos are less used to the boat and react wild! This is an opportunity to see the shoebill and to enjoy the spectacular scenery of the delta. Overnight on the South bank at the top of the Falls.(B-L-D)

Day 4: Murchison Falls NP - Kisubi & Departure After breakfast, we shall clear the camp and you can take the last opportunity to explore the top of the falls. This time we will take the direct road to Masindi and have a pic nic en route. We schall arrive in the late afternoon in Kisubi. Your tent will be ready and diner served! (B-L-D)
