The Mighty Murchison Safari

3,840 Km² and home to over 451 bird species and 76 different mammal species.

USD371 - USD14783 Days

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!
