The tour takes you through Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda's largest national park which protects a chunk of untamed African savannah. The park is bisected by the mighty river Nile, the World’s second longest river. It is named after the dramatic Murchison Falls, which is formed at a point where the world's longest river explodes violently through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 43m below. The park is dominated by the lush borassus grassland to the north of the Nile and this has attracted different animals which include elephants, buffaloes, giraffes and a variety of antelopes. In the southeast of the park lies the Rabongo Forest a famous home to primates such as chimpanzees and other tropical rainforest creatures. The Nile itself hosts one of Africa's densest hippo and crocodile populations, and a dazzling variety of water birds including the world's most accessible wild population of the rare shoe bill stork.
You will be picked from your hostel or residence by our guide. Drive northwards passing through the famous Luwero Triangle. Have a stopover at Masindi for lunch. Drive to the top of the falls for magnificent scenic view and photography of the breathtaking World’s second longest river “The Mighty Nile” as it squeezes its way through a rocky gap.
At around 3pm you will set off for your Rhino tracking with an experienced Rhino Fund Uganda ranger. The total tracking time will vary according to where the rhinos are currently situated within the sanctuary but you will be able to enjoy an hour in the close vicinity of the rhinos once found.
Spend a night in any Masindi based Lodges.
