Murchison Falls National Park lies at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, where the Bunyoro escarpment tumbles into vast, palm-dotted Savannah. The park was first gazetted as a game reserve in the early 1900s, it is Uganda's largest and oldest conservation area, hosting over 76 mammal species and 451 birds.

Even more, the park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which plunges over the remnant rift valley wall, creating the magnificent Murchison Falls, the centre piece of the park and the final event in an 80 km stretch of rapids. The mighty cascade drains the last of the river's energy, transforming it into a broad, placid stream that flows quietly across the rift valley floor into Lake Albert. This stretch of river creates one of Uganda's most remarkable wildlife prospects.

This 4 Days safari is an incredible vacation that takes you to the renowned Murchison Falls, Uganda’s biggest and oldest National Park, with breathtaking scenic allure and landscapes. You will enjoy a game drive and a boat cruise along the Nile and observe the River Nile squeezing in a 7-meter gorge before tumbling 40 meters down in a thunderous explosion and then flows down into a very peaceful river whose water banks are swarmed with water and land animals like elephants, giraffes and buffaloes, hippos, Nile crocodiles as well as birds species.
