walking and seeking out animals on foot as well as a game drive and a boat
game-viewing trip with a little energetic walking.
Luxury Trip Programme
- Arrive Entebbe Airport *where we meet you to transfer to Kilembe for overnight
in Backpackers Hostel**.
- We depart Backpackers Hostel at 8:00am sharp and drive to Murchison Falls
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).
- 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)
- 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.
