Home » Tours » 3-Day Best of Murchison Falls and African Big 5 Safari

This trip takes you to the mighty Murchison Falls. At the top of the falls, the Nile forces itself through a 7-meter gap and tumbles 43 meters with a deafening sound then flows westwards into Lake Albert. A safari to Murchison Falls offers the opportunity for the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffaloes, rhino and leopard) in Uganda.

Day 1 – Arrival and Transfer to Murchison Falls National Park

Hopefully, your flight is scheduled for an early landing in Entebbe. Your guide will pick you up from the airport and we’ll drive to Murchison Falls National Park. The drive will take you through Luwero Triangle, Nakasongola’s long stretch to Masindi town. The highlights of this safari include the roaring falls of Murchison, a boat trip to the bottom of the falls, the rolling plains of Uganda’s largest national park with chances of sighting elephants, buffalo, lions and giraffes. Expect a stopover at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary for a short walk to see the white rhinos with a ranger escort for about an hour seeing them enjoying the sanctuary. Have lunch at Kabalega, dinner and proceed to Murchison Falls National Park. You will occasionally sight wildlife on your way to your accommodation.

Day 2 – Morning Game Drive and Afternoon Boat Cruise

In the morning, have breakfast and set off for a morning game drive. Your guide will be able to look out for the early morning wildlife with expertise. Enjoy game viewing and photography of lions, buffaloes, giraffes, waterbucks, Uganda kob, elephants and various bird species. The game drive will take 3-4 hours. Thereafter, go back to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon, enjoy a sunroof boat ride which will take you to the bottom of the Murchison Falls where you will be able to see aquatic animals in water and different landscape.

Day 3 – Transfer to Entebbe via Top of Falls

After a calm breakfast, checkout and we drive back to Kampala. We’ll visit the top of Murchison Falls for a spectacular view of Murchison Falls. Depending on the time of your departure, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back home. We look forward to seeing you again!
