After breakfast, your tour guide will pick you up from Kampala (or Entebbe) and you will embark on the drive (311 kilometers from Kampala and approximately five hours) to Murchison Falls National Park.
Drive along the notable landscapes of Nakasongola, crossing the Kafu River and passing by the verdant Budongo Forest, and upon arrival, you’ll drive to the top of the falls. You'll encounter the world’s longest Nile River as it squeezes itself to pass through an eight-mile ravine forming a plume of spray marked by a thunderous roar and a trademark rainbow as it falls 43 meters below the Devil's Cauldron. The site displays an extraordinary scene for photography.
Retreat from the activity and connect to Paraa Jetty to catch up with the Nile launch cruise to the bottom of the falls departing at 2 p.m. The Nile launch cruise offers you an opportunity to explore the calm waters of the Nile River as they approach the delta gaining views of aquatic species like Nile crocodiles and hippos not forgetting the lucky sights of the most sought-after shoebill stork.
