Kristina's African Safaris
UGS8 Wildlife and Birds in Murchison Falls
A 4 day safari which starts
and finishes in Kampala. This safari can also be done on a private basis. It can
also be done as an extension to Classic Rwanda and Uganda.
Murchison Falls National
Park with the meandering Victoria Nile and the dramatic Murchison Falls is
Uganda’s largest protected area, providing a stunning semi arid habitat for a
variety of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, giraffe and lion. The launch
trip to the bottom of the Falls is unforgettable, both to experience this mighty
river and to see the crocodiles, hippos and birds that bask on its banks. In the
nearby Budongo Forest track chimpanzees and go bird watching.
On safari clients stay 3
nights at Nile Camp/Paraa.
This safari can also be done
as an extension to Classic Rwanda and Uganda.
