Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s oldest and largest conservation area, covering an area of 3,840 Km² and home to over 451 bird species (including the highly sought after and rare shoebill stork) and 76 different mammal species, including giraffes. Other game sightings regularly include lion, elephant, hippo, leopard, buffalo, hyena, warthog and various antelope.
Arguably the highlight of this trip is the mighty River Nile, which bisects the park and is forced through an 8m² wide cleft in the rock at Murchison Falls, plunging into the Devil’s Cauldron below. This is one of Silverbacks’ signature tours and is highly popular, with tailor-made departures throughout the year, perfect for those looking for a classic safari experience on a budget!
Rhinos are part of the big five of land animals and exploring them on foot is a rewarding encounter that you can explore on this 3-day safari – after an hour Rhino trek, continue on the drive to Murchison falls, arriving at you lodge/camp in the evening for relaxation & Dinner.
Then at 11:00 am Return to your Lodge for Lunch and relaxation as you wait for your afternoon boat cruise to the bottom of the falls – and later hiking to the top!
At 14.30: Depart for a 3-hour boat cruise along the Victoria Nile to the base of the fall, along the way; you will be able to observe a wide variety of birds and wildlife, including numerous hippos and crocodiles – as well as breathtaking scenery. On reaching the bottom I would advise you to hike to the top of the falls (please let your guide be aware if you are hiking so that his in position to drive and wait for you so that he can drive you back to your lodge). Also, note that Cold drinks are for sale on board!
