This 3 Day safari will take you to Ugandas largest parks known as Murchison Falls National Park, situated in Northwestern Uganda on an area of 3,840 sq km, gazetted in 1926 as a game reserve. It is classified with Savannah grasslands, and the Victoria Nile that flows through separating it into two (the northern and southern bank). Murchison Falls is home to over 451 bird species such as the Great blue Turaco, Goliath heron, the Shoebill, and the dwarf kingfisher among others, 76 mammal species, a big number of Nile crocodiles and above all the magnificent and thunderous Murchison Falls squeezing their way through a gorge that is 8m wide. All said, you will have an opportunity to enjoy both our Uganda safari game drives and the boat cruises along the Nile River.

Beginning with a panoramic drive northwest through the famous Luwero Triangle and Masindi Town, Stopover at Masindi town for lunch. Proceed to Murchison Falls NP via Budongo forest, drive to the top of the spectacular fall where you can see the Nile’s perfected beauty, and marvel as it compresses and squeezes itself from over 1 kilometer wide down through a 7-meter canyon. The 150-meter drop of the falls creates a thunderous roar and a beautiful rainbow in a plume of spray – the best thing to ever happen to the Nile. Finally, you can enjoy the sunset as you return to the superb comfort and service of Paraa Safari Lodge.
