This is Uganda’s largest protected area, and well worth the visit. Most people go there to view the impressive Murchison Falls as the mighty Victoria Nile River forces its way through a 7-metre channel before plunging down a cliff face and into a raging cauldron at the foot of the falls.
And yet this biodiverse area is much more than that, with game drives offering four of the Big 5, hippo, crocodiles, giraffes, spotted hyena and many other species. There is also an impressive bird list of 451 recorded species, including the startling shoebill stork which can be spotted in the thick papyrus beds in the delta area downstream of the falls.
Budongo Forest, which borders on Murchison Falls National Park, offers chimpanzee trekking as well as excellent birdwatching (up to 360 species).
We would prefer to hand-craft a safari to this area, just for you. Contact us to make an enquiry.
