Luxury Trip Programme
  1. Arrive Entebbe Airport *where we meet you to transfer to Kilembe for overnight in Backpackers Hostel**.
  2. We depart Backpackers Hostel at 8:00am sharp and drive to Murchison Falls National Park. Stop over at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary for Rhino trekking which takes approximately 1-2 hours. After the trekking we drive to the Karuma Falls on the Victoria Nile for a nature walk. The falls are set in a forested valley with a variety of bird life, monkeys and monitor lizards. After lunch we drive to Chobe Safari Lodge (*****) for dinner and overnight (full board).
  3. Early 6am breakfast. At 7am depart for the game-drive.
    Giraffe, antelope, elephant and a great variety of birdlife can be seen as you travel across the park towards Lake Albert. Many hippos can be seen lazing in the waters. Often a group of lions resting under a tree after a long night's hunting can also be seen. The game drive normally finishes at about 12.30pm after which we check-in to Parra Safari Lodge to have lunch and then head on for the afternoon boat cruise.
    We board the boat at 2pm for the trip up the river where we are sure to see many hippos, crocodiles, elephants, buffalos, bush pigs, and monkeys. On arriving at the Falls we disembark to walk up to the top of them. The scenery is stunning. At the top we have time to take-in the beautiful scenery while waiting for the sun to set over the River Nile. Meanwhile the driver will have driven around to the top of the Falls where he will meet the ranger and walk to meet you. Head back to the lodge for dinner and overnight. (full board)
  4. Early breakfast at 6.00am. At 7am we drive down to Budongo forest for a Chimp Tracking session. The guides are fantastic with a good knowledge of the forest with many stories to tell. After returning for lunch we head off back to Entebbe or to Hoima for those who will be continuing with the safari.
* If you arrive/depart on earlier/later flights please let us know and accommodation can be arranged in Kampala at an additional cost.
** Other acommodation in Kampala can be arranged at extra cost.
