Murchison Falls Safari Uganda

On the 6 Day Murchison Falls Safari you get to share the nights with the hippos, hike to the top the falls for the out-of-this-world view, take a boat safari and game drive in the park where primeval crocodiles and prehistoric shoebill share their home with the largest troop of chimpanzees in Uganda.

Highlights

  • Visit the last White Rhinos in Uganda at Ziwa and stay in the stylish Bakers Lodge on the banks of the Nile
  • Some of the best (and biggest) Tiger fish and Nile Perch in Africa
  • Big game, Africa’s largest crocodiles and the elusive Shoebill
  • Follow chimps racing through the treetops in nearby Budongo Forest

Trip Overview

Murchison Falls is a Lost World, as befits a park that is home to the largest crocodiles in Africa, where these primeval reptiles unchanged in nearly 150 mill years grow up to 6 metres long, bask on the banks of the Nile, underneath the thunderous falls from which the park takes its name.  Giant Tiger fish and Nile Perch swim silently through waters of the river itself, daring those who take to the waters to test their resolve in the catch and release fishing for which the area is famous. Huge elephant herds are rumoured to contain some of Africa’s biggest tuskers and the holy grail of birds, the 5ft tall, prehistoric Shoebill  Stork, hunts among the reeds in an area famed for its sightings of this enigmatic creature. If this still isn’t wild enough for you, then head to the budongo forest, where chimpanzees crash their way through the canopies as hornbills and fly-catchers take flight.  After all this adventure, crack open a cold beer and relax at the exclusive Bakers Lodge camp, sumptuous dinners are followed by tales around the campfire.
