What to expect
The Murchison Falls Tour takes you to the renowned Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda’s spectacular heritage, with breathtaking scenic allure, and landscapes. You will enjoy a game drive and a boat cruise along the Nile River and observe the squeezing of the Nile River in a 7 meter gorge before tumbling 40 meters down in a thunderous explosion and then flows down into a very peaceful river whose water banks are swarmed with a profusion of water and land animals as well as birds. Safari Highlights Ziwa Rhino sanctuary Murchison falls Game drives Boat launch on the Victoria Nile Safari Itinerary You will have an early breakfast and drive to Murchison Falls National Park passing through beautiful woodlands and Savannah grasslands. This journey takes 6-7 hours with stopovers at interesting tourist attractions en route.  You will wake up very early and set off at 6.30am for a sunrise game drive in the Nyamsika plateau to see the Cape buffaloes, Rothschild’s giraffes, Uganda kob, hartebeest and waterbucks. You may also spot oribi, bushbuck, Bohor reedbuck, shy sitatunga, bush duiker, warthog and bush pig plus large carnivores including lions, leopards and spotted hyenas. Chimpanzees and olive baboons head the list of six species of primates found in the park. Crocodiles and hippos will be seen along the banks of the Nile. Some of the more common birds that can be seen include goliath heron, Egyptian geese, pelican, bee-eaters, kingfishers, hornbill, cormorant, saddle-bill stork and the rare shoebill stork. You will return to your lodge for a late breakfast and some relaxation before setting off in the afternoon for a boat cruise on the placid Victoria Nile, upstream, to the base of the falls. En route you will see hippos, crocodiles, water buck and a wide variety of birds including the unusual shoebill stork. The boat stops just tens of meters from the “Devil’s Cauldron” for pictures to be taken of the photogenic and majestic Murchison Falls. You will return to your lodge for dinner and overnight. We drive to the “top of the thunderous Murchison falls”, where you will enjoy the spectacular view before proceeding to Kampala, arriving in the late afternoon.

TripAdvisor and Viator take 15% off the top of this trip
Nov 2018 • Couples
I've been on many TripAdvisor trips but never had them take a commission off the advertised price until this trip. This is false advertising all around. The accommodations for this trip are budget only - not mentioned anywhere on the website. We were put in a small tent with no ventilation, a shared toilet and a shared shower with only a trickle of cold water. For the price we paid, we were expecting (and should have received) luxury accommodations. No one communicated with us about this trip after our money was paid at booking. I was expecting some kind of welcome message and itinerary. I had to search for an email address to confirm our hotel pick-up the night before. In general, the safari and sight-seeing were great but the accommodations could not have been more disappointing ruining the entire trip. Because of the Viator commission and poor communication, I would not recommend this trip through TripAdvisor for anyone.

Murchison Falls
This 3 day safari was such a wonderful experience. The company gave us exactly what was described. Our guide was so nice, patient, and truly cared about our time in the Park. The lodging was wonderful. When I come back next year, I'm hiring them again.
