3 Day Murchison Falls tour from Kampala – Wild Jungle Trails Safaris

Early morning after breakfast at your place of residence or hotel in the bustling capital of Kampala, your Wild Jungle Trails safari guide will meet you for a drive to Murchison Falls National Park. After meeting, greeting and briefing your 3 days Murchison Falls wildlife safari Uganda trip starts with a drive north of Kampala. 

After about 3h 11min drive you arrive in Masindi town where you stop for a lunch break in one the best hotels in the town. After lunch, the drive continues to Murchison Falls National Park 72.4km from Masindi with your driver guide highlighting on all of your questions during the drive. 

Arriving at Murchison Falls National Park, you are driven to the top of the mighty Murchison Falls. The top of the falls is the point where the Nile River water forges its way by squeezing through a 7 meter rock gorge before it tumbles down off a cliff 43 m into what is known as the devils cauldron.

The pressure that the river uses to squeeze through the rocks is what makes it the world’s most powerful falls. After a tour to the top of the falls, you are driven for check in at a prior booked hotel where you spend the night.

Meal Plan: Lunch and Dinner
