6 Days Murchison Falls & Budongo Forest

Murchison Falls National park lies on the Northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley. It is Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area and is bisected by the Victoria Nile. It hosts over 76 species of mammals and 451 birds. On your safari tour to this park, you will be able to see Rhinos, Lions, Hippos, Chimpanzees at Budongo Forest and many more wild animals in the park. You will be able to view the mighty Murchison Falls.

DAY 1

DAY 2

Drive to Murchison Falls via Zziwa Rhino

Your driver/ tour guide will pick you up in the morning and you will then head north to Zziwa Rhino Sanctuary. The Rhino sanctuary founded in 1998, works to reintroduce black and white rhinos into Uganda. They run a breeding program and educate communities on these endangered giants, the problem of poaching and the need for environmental conservation. At the Rhino Sanctuary you will have a safari-hike to the rhinos which will give you the opportunity to view them at close range. After visiting the rhinos, you will have lunch at Kabalega dinner, 3km from the sanctuary (lunch cost not inclusive). After lunch you will then continue to Murchison Falls National Park. You will enter the park through the northern gate where you will see plenty of baboons on your way to the lodge. The journey is estimated to take 8 hours.

DAY 3

Game Drive & Boat Safari

You will get up for an early breakfast and have an early start on your game drive through the national park while the animals are most active. In the morning hours animals are active, the sun is not yet so bright and temperatures are cooler, this is the best time to spot wild animals. Your game drive will be in the northern part of the park. A drive through the park brings you closer to the animals; elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, lions, leopards, different species of antelope and many tropical birds. They are all found in Murchison Falls! In the afternoon, you take a boat safari towards the base of Murchison Falls. Carefully watched by crocodiles, hundreds of hippos, buffaloes, water birds and all the other thirsty wildlife that the Nile attracts, your boat will arrive to the bottom of the 43-meter-high Murchison Falls, which approaches you with a thunderous sound.

Sarah, United States

Unforgettable Murchison falls & Budongo! We spent 6 day Safari tour days on safari with Harrison our guide/driver from StarMount Safaris. We weren't expecting a welcome party at the airport but there they were; the owner and the guide to give us a warm welcome to Uganda. Booking process was smooth via email, with quick responses and we thought it was a very competitive price having done much research of local tour operators. Everything was meticulously planned; we didn't have to think about park passes, lunch boxes, checking in etc. The guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and we were fortunate to see everything the itinerary said we would see. All in all an absolutely unforgettable trip. Couldn't recommend StarMount Safaris enough! Read more

Amazing Gorilla Safari tour! We decided to book a safari tour last minute to Bwindi National Park. We contacted 4 tour companies in Uganda and only StarMount Safaris responded to our inquiry. We found them very professional, their response was timely, informative and they offered a variety of options to fit within the budget that we had. The tour was a success and flawless! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with after the tour. StarMount safaris under sells but over delivers. We had fun and created loads of memories on our 4 day Gorilla Safari tour. I would use them again! Read more
