Murchison falls safari wildlife game viewing starts followed by boat ride
Your 3 days Murchison falls safari begins with differently based on accommodation you were booked into. The northern bank is to the"Big Four", only rhino being absent. African buffalo and elephants are particularly common. There is a very healthy population of lions that like to prey on the abundantly available Uganda Kob, Oribi, and waterbuck antelope. Hyenas is present but rare yet zebra is absent in Murchison falls national park.
Explore the major game trails especially around the area of the delta for good game viewings including lots of elephants, lions, giraffes, antelopes, Jackals, hyenas, Uganda kobs, waterbuck, Jackson's Hartebeests, and hopefully the elusive leopards among others.
At about 11.30am you return to the lodge for lunch and relaxation. In the afternoon head out on the Victoria Nile for a boat ride. This is the biggest highlight during a 3 days Murchison Falls national park Safari as you will get a chance to spot lots of animals close. Expect to view lots of hippopotamus, Nile crocodiles, elephants, buffaloes, and lots of other animals that come to drink water, refresh and cool off the scorching sun and other to eat the fresh grass along the river banks. The Nile is also a birds' heaven with species such as dwarf kingfisher, pied kingfisher, malachite kingfisher, skimmers, storks, Goliath heron, white-thighed hornbill and great blue turaco are some of the species among them. Your boat guide will point out the crush site of Ernest Hemingway.
The ride takes you close to the base of the Murchison Falls and here you are be treated to yet another sight of these lovely falls. Return to the lodge for dinner and overnight.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
