Explore Uganda’s largest national park and one of its most spectacular, Murchison Falls National Park, which covers approximately 3,877 sq km. It’s home to rich wildlife which you will discover on a game drive and boat cruise. At the Falls themselves, the Nile River plunges through a narrow crevice and over a 40-metre drop. East of the Murchison Falls within the park are the Karuma Falls, where the Nile River cascades over a breathtaking 23 km of rapids, one of the most exciting white water rafting opportunities in Africa. Other highlights on this safari are Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary where you can do an exciting rhino walk and Budongo Forest which offers the option to trek to see chimpanzees.
