Itinerary

Day 1: Kampala to Murchison Falls

We will have an extremely early start for the national park via Masindi and drive straight up to the top of the falls for a breath-taking view.

The magnificence of the falls lies in the fact that water squeezes through a very narrow gorge to produce an exploding gush of waters that then fall 45 feet below.

After you have had your fill of the view, we will then drive to your accommodation and check you in, then have lunch.

After lunch, we will head down to the pier in time for the 2 pm boat cruise. After the boat cruise, we will have a short game drive and return to the pier to pick up the day’s last ferry at 7 pm. We will then head to your accommodation and rest in for the night.
