4 Days Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison Falls National Park is located at the northern end of the vast Albertine Rift Valley, where you find the mighty River Nile tumble down the Bunyoro escarpment on the Savannah plains. On a visit to Uganda’s largest national park, you will find large herds of buffaloes and elephants, the endangered Rothschild Giraffes in great numbers. Others are the elusive leopard and of course the king of the jungle – the lion. Along the banks of the Nile, you will see enormous Nile crocodiles and vast numbers of hippos

DAY 1

DAY 3

Game drive & boat safari to

This morning, enjoy your breakfast and head out for a game drive for a chance to view the glorious day-break from across the open savannah, birds and dotted woodland as well as reverine vegetation along the Nile. You will also be able to see game ranging from lions, large herds of buffalo, elephant, the endangered Rothschild giraffes, a lot of antelopes and a lot more. At between 10-11am, you will return to the lodge for relaxation and lunch. After your lunch at 2.00pm, you will head out for the boat launch to the bottom of the powerful Murchison Falls. This three-hour boat cruise climaxes at the edge of the rift valley escarpment at which point you will get off the boat and trek to the top of the falls (wear sports shoes while on the boat for ease of trekking to the top). Having worked up a sweat, once at the top, you get bathed in the misty spray that the Nile creates as it forces itself into the 7-metre cleft to create the famous Murchison Falls. Your guides will be waiting up top to transfer you back to the lodge for dinner and overnight stay. Dinner and overnight at Murchison River Lodge. Read more

A Magical Uganda experience with Africa Uzuri Safaris” Our family safari holiday to Uganda was handled professionally by Africa Uzuri Safaris and I would recommend them highly. We were met at Entebbe airport by our driver/guide who transferred us to Cassia Lodge in Kampala for an overnight stay. Our safari started in Jinja where we visited the Source of the Nile and later participated in adrenaline-raising activities. The whole experience was indeed magical as the experience of riding quad bikes on dirt trails beside the Nile, to the game safari in the Murchison Falls National Park were all wonderful. We would never have included these attractions on our itinerary if we had chosen to do it ourselves – we would have missed out on some of the fun. Rummaging through Kibale Forest National Park in search of chimpanzees and learning about the other 12 primates that live in this forest, the birdlife and plants was very refreshing. However, nothing prepares you for an encounter with the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi. We tracked gorillas in Buhoma – the northern sector because of its gentler terrain (on recommendation from Edris) but all I have to say is that the mandatory 1-hour we spent in the presence of the gentle gorillas was the most magical. The accommodations were perfect all the way. Our driver/guide Twaha was very professional and knowledgeable. If you are planning travel to Uganda, don’t hesitate, book with them. Read more

Thank you for arranging a wonderful safari holiday for my family We contacted Uzuri Safaris to arrange our 8 days safari holiday to Uganda and from the get go, Edris, who we were in communication with at the office throughout the arrangement of the trip was very professional; responding to emails quickly and answering all our queries regarding the trip. Once we got to Uganda, we fell in love with everything – the people, food, wildlife and the scenery and a lot more. Our driver/guide who spoke perfect English and knew all the places we visited like the back of his hand did a wonderful job and we are very grateful to him for making our trip enjoyable. The highlight was the 1-hour we spent with the Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi – what an experience! The accommodations that were selected from the hotel in Kampala, the lodge in Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth National Park and in Bwindi were clean and comfortable. To sum it all up, we had a wonderful time in Uganda and we recommend them for anyone intending to travel to Uganda. Read more

Amazing week in Uganda We had an incredible time in Uganda this summer, it was very well organised and we felt in safe hands the whole time. We went gorilla trekking in the Bwindi National Park, and on safari in the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Gorilla Trekking was the highlight, definitely something to tick off the bucket list. Overall, i couldn't fault our trip, and would recommend it to anyone and everyone! Read more
