Most of the wildlife is found in the northern part of the park. If you are staying on the south side, you will have to board the ferry and cross to the northern side.
After an early morning breakfast, you have a full morning of spectacular game viewing. Murchison Falls NP is probably one of the most visited national parks. The park is home to different wildlife including several mammals such as Rothchild’s giraffes (an endangered species), hyenas, lions, antelopes, buffaloes, elephants and so much more as well as plenty of bird species. These are widely spread over the park and will make a game drive worthwhile.
After this extensive game drive, you return to your accommodation for a hot lunch.
The afternoon will be spent on an extensive exploration by boat on the Nile river, upstream towards the Falls. This is where the Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and cascades down to become a placid river. You can admire on the slopes of the Nile river, the big number of hippos, elephants and the Nile crocodiles. The launch trip is a unique adventure, full of activity and constant surprises!
You will then get off the the launch cruise and hike to the top of the falls. This hike may be tough for some people but it is greatly rewarding as you near the top and hear the roaring sound of the water as it falls and taken in the breathtaking views of the falls.
Your driver-guide will pick you up from the top and you will have a short game drive back to your accommodation.
