This five day trip gives you an exceptional moment to view River Nile as it squeezes itself into walls of the remnant rift valley, creating the dramatic Murchison Falls, the world’s most powerful waterfall.

Day 1: Arrive in Uganda

You will be picked from Entebbe Airport by a guide driver who will bring you to Kampala for an overnight. If you arrive on time, the driver will take you around Kampala for city tours.

Day 2: Rhino Sanctuary and sunset views

Set off from Kampala and take the Masindi, branch off at Nakasongora to the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary for a guided walk. You will view the rhinos walk followed by a picnic lunch. Continue up to the Park, check in to your accommodation and take a sunset cruise on the River Nile or drive to the top of the falls where you can view both Murchison and the smaller Uhuru falls as the sun slowly falls.

Day 3: Game Drive and Launch Trip

Make the most of the morning by taking the 7am ferry to begin the game drive in Buligi. The area is home to many lions, elephants, giraffes and other wildlife. After lunch, embark on the three-hour launch trip to the base of the falls. Cruise past huge hippo pods, crocodiles, bathing buffalo and numerous aquatic birds adorning the north bank on the way to the mighty waterfall.

Day 4: Birding on the Delta and Game Drive to top of Falls

Birders will be in for a thrilling experience during the boat ride to the Nile Delta, where the River Nile meets Lake Albert. Have your binoculars ready for the rich bird life including the shoebill stork, Goliath heron and grey crowned crane. Alternatively, spend your morning relaxing at your lodge, cooling off in the pool, or taking a cultural walk to Mubako community with a local guide. After lunch, hop in the car for a game drive along the newly opened Tebito track, finishing with a short walk down to the top of the fall on the north bank. Spend the night in a lodge in Budongo Forest.

Day 5: Chimp Tracking or Birding in Budongo Forest

Meet our distant cousins! Start early game drive to catch chimps leaving their nests in the Budongo Forest, looking out for other primates and forest bird species along the way. Alternatively, walk with our experienced guide along the renowned “Royal Mile” for some spectacular birding – over 360 species inhabit this forest. In the afternoon, as you leave the Conservation Area, take a detour to Boomu Women’s Group to discover a little about life in northwestern Uganda, and learn about the local culture, music and crafts. You can choose to stay longer for a nature walk in Bundogo tropical forest, head to Kidepo Valley National Park or drive back to Kampala (check out our Kidepo Valley National Park itinerary)
