Murchison Falls National Park safari – 5 Days.

Murchison Falls National Park, with 3,840 square kilometers is Uganda's largest National Park. The park is cut in half by the River Nile and its landscape varies from dense rainforest on the hilly ranges in the South-West to undulating savannah in the North-West. The forest shelters many primate species, including Chimpanzees, while the river attracts various Antelopes, Buffalos, Rothschild-Giraffes and Elephants. These gentle giants are slowly recovering from the brutal slaughter they suffered during the civil wars.

The world-famous Murchison Falls are a must for any visitor. The most impressive view is at the top, where the Nile forces its way through a 7 meter gap in the rocks and tumbles 40 meters down. The major focus of interest, however, is the birds, which can be observed all around you, in the swampy reeds, the sandy beaches, or the huge trees along the water. The bird watching here is very impressive and ranges from the tiny Malachite Kingfisher and the Carmine Bee-Eater to the African Fish eagle and the Shoebill bill Stork. This is the most conspicuous bird that with a little luck can be seen standing unshakeable along the water's edge.
