Day 1

Drive from Kampala to Murchison Falls National Park; go for a boat cruise

Picked up by your knowledgeable Africa Reveal Safaris guide and driven to Murchison Falls National Park, your journey will take between 5 and 6 hours depending on the number of stops made along the way.

The route will be Kampala-Luwero-Masindi. Purchase some delectable fruits along the way, like as pineapples and oranges, and then continue to Masindi Town via Nakasongola, from where you will enter Murchison Falls National Park by the Kichumbanyobo gate in the south.

Drive to the park’s northern area, but keep an eye out for the lively baboons and other monkeys on the Budongo Forest side. You will be served lunch at a local restaurant before joining other visitors on a 2:00 p.m. boat excursion to the bottom of Murchison Falls.

On a launch/boat ride, expect to see anything from hippos, crocodiles, and waterways to savanna animal species grazing near the river banks. Fish eagles, kingfishers, and bee-eaters are among the many water birds to be seen here, and as you approach the base of the falls, take in the breathtaking scenery and take photos.

You’ll trek to the top of Murchison Falls to see how this massive cascade squeezes itself into a 7-meter-wide valley before tumbling 43 meters below. Return to the lodge by boat or in a 4WD Safari Van/extended 4WD Land Cruiser. Dinner and overnight accommodations have been secured at your desired lodge.
