03 DAYS/02 NIGHTS MURCHISON FALLS STUDENT SAFARI

SAFARI OVERVIEW

Your 3 days safari will take you to Murchison Falls National Park- Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area, first gazetted in 1926 and covering an expansive area of about 3,840 square kilometers. The park hosts over 451 bird species and 76 mammal species and is bisected by the Victoria Nile to form the Northern and Southern Banks. The Nile squeezes through an 8m narrow gorge and plunges over 45m, creating the thunderous Murchison Falls. The highlight of the trip will include sightings of different bird species for example the Greater Blue Turracco and the rare Shoebill stork among other species. Game drives are so rewarding, hiking and boat cruise do not miss out as well in this beautiful savannah park.
