Tour Overview

This short safari is ideal for adventure and nature enthusiasts. Murchison Falls is named after the famous falls where the Victoria Nile rushes with tremendous force through a narrow, 6-meter rock gorge to crash onto the rocks 150 feet 45 meters below where one of the largest concentration of crocodile in the continent wait to feed on fish from the falls. Wildlife like the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe, Defassa waterbuck, oribi, hartebeest, Uganda kob and Patas monkey. Enjoy the 11-kilometer boat-ride to the base of the falls. Over 450 bird species have been recorded here.
