3 Days Murchison Falls Safari - Wild Jungle Trails Safaris

Early morning after breakfast at your place of residence or hotel in either Kampala or Entebbe, 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 have a short sunset game drive along the way to a prior booked hotel / lodge where you check in, have dinner and spend the night. 

Drive Time: 5-7 hours
Meal Plan: Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation Options: Luxury: Paraa safari Lodge/ Baker’s Lodge, Midrange: Murchison River Lodge/ Fort Murchison Lodge, Budget: Red Chili Rest Camp/ Heritage safari Lodge

By sunrise, your Uganda wildlife tour guide will pick you up from the hotel for a transfer to the park for a morning game drive.
