DAY 02 –ZIWA RHINO SANCTUARY
Drive to Murchison Falls national park with a stopover at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary for the Rhino experience. This is the only place in Uganda where one can see the white rhinos in the wild and on foot with a ranger. As a project managed by Rhino Fund Uganda, it has been successful with now about 32 white rhinos in the sanctuary. After being briefed by a ranger about the sanctuary and how these animals were re-introduced in Uganda, you will embark on a rhino trekking experience with information about the behavior of the rhinos, which can be seen in a short distance on foot with a ranger. The experience takes like an hour depending on your interests and how much you would like to know about the rhinos.
After lunch, you will head to Murchison Falls national park. Do not be surprised when you don’t see many animals in this southern side of the park, as part of it is covered in trees, shrubs and a dense forest. You will reach the lodge in the evening for overnight at Murchison River Lodge
DAY 03 –MURCHISON NATIONAL PARK
Wake up before the birds for an early morning game drive in the national park. On the game drive, you will see animals like the lions, leopards, Nubian giraffes, buffalos, Jackson’s hartebeests, oribis, Uganda cobs, hyenas, waterbucks, patas monkeys, warthogs, African elephants and a variety of different bird species. The park is blessed with over 144 mammals, 556 bird species, 51 reptiles and amphibians. Having almost 4,000 square kilometers makes it the largest national park in Uganda.
In the afternoon, you will embark on a 3-hour boat ride to the bottom of the falls. As the boat roles upstream, you will be treated with ‘schools’ of hippos in the waters of the Victoria-Nile and other animals that come to assuage their thirst. Different bird species like the kingfishers, bee-eaters, African fish eagles, to mention but a few will entertain your ride as the guide labors to tell you their different names.
DAY 04 –DEPARTURE
After breakfast, you will have one more adventure before you continue back to Kampala. You will drive to the top of Murchison Falls to have another view of them and take awesome photos. This is where the Nile squeezes itself between a 7-meter-gap of rock, falling almost 40 meters into the deep. This part of the morning is the best to capture the rainbow in-between the vapors produced by the turbulence of the waters on a good sunny day. Thereafter, you will say farewell to the park and drive back to Kampala for your continuous schedule.
