At 6:00, our driver will pick you from your hotel in Masindi, proceed to the Murchison Falls National Park. Our guide will brief you on the 1 Day safari to Murchison Falls National Park before you set off. We’re ushered into the Murchison by playful anticipating baboons in the road after clearance at the park gate. After crossing the ferry at 9:00 am local time, we begin the game drive and takes between 3 to 4 hours. During the park’s landscape amazing game viewing/game driving, we see different wildlife species; over 76 mammal and 451 bird species including the Buffaloes, Jackson hartebeests, Antelopes, Lions, Kobs, Giraffes, Hyenas, Bushbucks, and Warthogs among others. They are widely spread all over the Savannah grasslands, grazing or hunting for prey.
At 2.00pm we go for Launch Cruise on Victoria Nile. This is the biggest highlight of any Murchison Falls Safari. Such beautiful wildlife sightings relaxing ride of about 3 hours. We find there a lot of water animals like the hippos and Nile crocodiles. At this point, we sightsee buffalos, elephants, antelopes and a cocktail of birds such as kingfisher, herons, and fish eagles, viewing crocodiles, the many hippos along the bank and in the river, the birds, monkeys, buffaloes, elephants and so much more and of course the bottom of the falls. Birds on the boat include the Goliath Herons, Occasional Shoe Billed Stork, Great White Egret, African Skimmer, Red-throated bee-eater and Pied King Fisher. Stop at a landing rock at a vantage point from which you will take pictures of the Murchison Falls. It is one of the best wildlife experiences in Uganda.
Lastly, we go the top of the falls that make Murchison Falls National Park so famous. This is a place for most memorable pictures and a taking in of the sounds and sights, including the rainbow that does not disappear – created by the mist of the falls. It is such a great sight as watching predators such as lions make moves on their prey, it’s an amazing experience since most antelopes are hunted down and killed without notice. Incredible picture moments here as we continue the drive seeing the beautiful grassy landscape to the start of the hike to the top of the Murchison Falls. You’re treated to the breathtaking sight of the falls at the top. About 300 – 400 cubic meters per second of Nile waters force through a tiny gorge of about 6 meters to plunge into a violent tempest about 42.5 meters below.
