3-Day Trip to Murchison Falls Including Big 5 Sighting
3 days Itinerary
1:Arrive Entebbe (early), pick up and transfer to Murchison NP with rhino tracking in Zziwa.
We hope that your flight is scheduled for an early (not past noon) landing in Entebbe. Your driver/guide will pick you from the Entebbe International Airport and hit the road to Murchison Falls National Park. The highlights of this park include the roaring rapids of the Murchison Falls, the rolling plains of Uganda’s largest National Park where you will have the chance of viewing lions, giraffes, hartebeest, buffalo and elephants among others. En route, make a visit to Zziwa Rhino sanctuary for your first Big 5 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.
2:Murchison game drive and boat trip to the base of the falls plus top of the falls’ walk.
Have your breakfast, depart for an early morning game drive across the rolling plains of Uganda’s largest National Park and be on the look for wildlife including: lions, leopards (though hard to spot) among others. For any birder, there are quite a number of birds to sight too during the drive. Return to the accommodation for some rest time and lunch. OPTIONAL: If interested, you may opt for the hot air balloon safari (instead) at an extra cost (on ground).
After lunch, you will head out for the boat trip to the base of Murchison Falls where you will also be able to catch sight of more animals including Hippos and Crocodiles and several water birds. Continue with a hike (if you like) to the top of the falls. The hike may be a strenuous one but the thrill on reaching the top is unforgettable. Miss it only if you must. Return to your accommodation and have a relaxed evening.
3:Early morning game drive, exit the park and return to Entebbe to catch flight out.
Be up early, have breakfast and proceed out for another early morning game drive. Thereafter, exit the park and hit the road to Entebbe Airport. Your lunch will be en route and reaching Entebbe in the late afternoon (evening) to catch flight out (recommended for 18:00 onward). We hope to see you when next, you visit and thanks for choosing Home to Africa!
