A 3 day tour to the breathtaking Murchison waterfalls on the Nile River. The Murchison falls national park is a both a bird watching paradise, and a great game viewing destination. You will also enjoy a boat excursion in the River Nile during the tour.
Pick up in the morning from hotel or Entebbe Airport. Proceed to Murchison Falls National Park which is Uganda's largest park via the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Covering 3,840 sq kms of savannah, rainforest and hills, this is Uganda's largest park and protected area as well. Check in at the hotel followed by lunch.
After lunch visit the "top of the falls" for your chance to view the magnificence of the Nile. The River Nile cuts the park into half where it crashes through an impossibly narrow 7 m gap in a cleft rock creating a powerful foaming torrent due to the difference in height. The murchison falls are a splendid sight due to its power rather than the size.
