Shoebill Safaris

4-Day Murchison Falls with Chimp Tracking at Budongo

Day 1: Drive to Murchison Falls NP

After breakfast, meet your guide and transfer to Masindi. Stop over at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Here you shall have a walking Safari to the Southern White Rhinos (optional 45$ p.P.) that have been re-introduced in Uganda.

Later you proceed to Murchison Falls National Park. Murchison covers 3,840-sq km and has recorded 76 mammal species and over 450 bird species. It lies 619m at the delta and 1,292 at Rabongo Hill.

Day 2: Game drive and Boat Cruise

After a rather early breakfast, morning games drive. Afternoon, you’ll have a boat cruise to the bottom of the Falls. The Falls give a rare and magnificent view, they are one of Africa’s wonders and a must see for everyone. We of course cannot fail to mention that it’s from these falls that Murchison derives its name. Watch the pods of Hippos, crocodiles and a vast number of water birds. There are high chances of seeing the Shoebill stock from which our company derives its name. Enjoy the spectacular falls with a hike to the top of the Falls where the Nile squeezes through a 7-meter gap and at the bottom bask Huge Nile Crocodiles.

Day 3: Chimp Tracking at Budongo Forest

After breakfast we begin our journey to Budongo forest for yet another exiting adventure. Afternoon indulge yourself in this remarkable walk. Meet the real cousins of human beings otherwise known as the Chimpanzees. Chimps 98.7% genes with humans.

Spend time with them and return to Lodge.

Day 4: Return to Entebbe

After breakfast you will drive back to Kampala or Entebbe.
