Mores than pictures


This 3-day Murchison Falls Safari takes you on an unforgettable journey, where you'll be amazed by the mighty River Nile and wildlife ecosystem of Murchison Falls National Park.

You will begin your adventure with a visit to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where you'll get the opportunity to encounter Uganda's endangered rhinos in their natural habitat. From there, explore the vast savannahs of Murchison Falls National Park, where you'll encounter an incredible range of wildlife. Spot majestic lions, elusive leopards, towering elephants, graceful giraffes, bellowing buffaloes, and many more.

You will also take a boat cruise along the Nile River and witness an exceptional sight as the river squeezes through a narrow 7–8-meter gorge, to form the iconic Murchison Falls. Marvel at one of Africa's densest populations of hippos and crocodiles, plus a dazzling variety of water birds, including the world's most accessible wild population of the rare shoe-bill.

Overall, this 3-day Murchison Falls Safari is an excellent way to unwind, connect with nature, and experience the beauty of Uganda's wildlife and landscape.
