Transfer to Murchison Falls with Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary (Rhino Tracking)
Hopefully, your flight is scheduled for an early landing in Entebbe. Your guide/driver will pick you up from Entebbe Airport and head out for Murchison Falls. The highlights of this park include the roaring rapids of the Murchison, and the rolling plains of Uganda’s largest national park, where you will have the chance to view lions, giraffes, hartebeest, buffalo, and elephants. Then you will be fascinated by the concentration of hippos and Nile crocodiles here. For birders, Murchison Falls boasts 450 bird species including the elusive shoebill stork, dwarf king fisher, the white-thigh hornbill, and the Goliath heron among others.
En route, make a stopover at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, for your first Big Five experience where you will have an hour of rhino tracking. Another stop will be in Masindi in order to enjoy your lunch. Continue to the park and check into your accommodation to relax for the evening.
Morning game drive and boat trip to the top of the falls
On this day wake up early and have breakfast at 6:30 am, meanwhile, your driver and the ranger guide will pick you up from the lodge and readily start your Game drive at 7:00 am. This is surely a beautiful drive across the grassland down to Lake Albert where the Albert Nile heads north. Additionally drive to the open African savannah in search of Lions, leopards, hyenas, buffaloes, elephants, Jackson heart beasts, oribi, waterbucks, and Uganda kobs. At around 11:40 am, drive back to the lodge in order to freshen up and have lunch.
After lunch in the afternoon, you will basically embark on the three-hour launch trip to the base of the falls. You will however cruise past huge hippo pools, crocodiles, and bathing buffaloes. And furthermore, numerous aquatic birds adorn the north bank on the way to the mighty waterfalls for instance the bee-eaters, the colored kingfishers, the shoe-billed stork, and many others. While at the base of the fall, you could opt to go hiking to the top falls.
Return to the airport/Kampala
Lastly, after breakfast in the morning, you will finally return back to Kampala. En route, you will be able to enjoy spectacular views including the Karuma falls. You will have a brief stopover in Masindi for lunch and then continue with the journey. Upon arrival in Kampala, you will be dropped off at your preferred location although we can drop you at the Airport.
