Uganda Gorilla Chimp Trek, Murchison Falls Wild Game Safari  - 6 Days

 

OVERVIEW

 

This tour involves a mountain gorilla tracking experience in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (with over 12 other primate species), wildlife safari experiences to Murchison Falls National Park  with the 'BIG 5' (lion, leopard, elephant, hippo and buffalo), over 600 bird species, antelopes, crocodile,  and chimpanzee tracking in Kibale National Park - East Africa's Primate capital with over 12 primates species.

Murchison Falls is only about 5 hours drive from Kampala (or 1 hour by flight). The park has a variety of vegetation ranging from riparian forests and swamplands to broad savannah, and provides visitors the opportunity of seeing large concentrations of wildlife including lion, leopard, civet, hyena, elephant, giraffe, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, a host of smaller game, small primates and many bird species, including the rare shoebill stork.

Here is the awe inspiring Murchison Falls where the River Nile hurls itself in convulsions through a narrow crevice and then plunges 40 metres in one breathtaking leap.

Apart from game viewing, the launch trip to the bottom of the falls is another memorable adventure giving you the experience of the mighty Biblical Nile. On the launch you may see schools of crocodiles and hippos basking on the river banks as well as a variety of birds.
