Description

Murchison Falls Fly in Safari, 3 Days two Nights tour

Day one:             Mid morning check in at Entebbe airport then start the Murchison falls fly in on the morning flight. The trip takes approximately 60 minutes from Entebbe to Pakuba airstrip on the northern of Murchison Falls National Park. Arrive at the Pakuba Airstrip strip and thereafter, transfer by the Lodge game-viewing safari vehicle. You may stopg along the way to see the larger mammals like the Elephants, Giraffes and the Cape Buffalo. Arrive for lunch at the Lodge and spend time at the free form swimming pool with a swim up bar. Later on, heading to the Nile for the afternoon Murchison Falls cruise on the placid river teeming with thirsty Wildlife. Just a few metres from your vantage point on the excursion boat, African Elephants drinking water from the banks.

In addition, hundreds of yawning hippos marking out their colonies. Crocodiles tending to their young, protecting their eggs from Hyenas. Meanwhile, a variety of water birds like the knob billed ducks, Egyptian geese, spur winged plovers and the Goliath Herons. Sailing close to breeding colonies of the red throated bee-eaters and the African Pied Kingfishers. There could still be more sightings of Waterbuck, Giant Forest Hog, giraffe or Leopard. The boat then anchors at a rocky point at the base of the falls near fajao. At this point, take pictures of the Marvels of the falls, seen by the first Europeans Florence and Samuel Baker. Thereafter, following the re-exploration of Africa, return to the starting point arriving for dinner and overnight at the accommodations.

Day Two:            Morning safari at Murchison falls National park

After breakfast, a morning guided safari to the northern bank of the Murchison falls follows early trade routes. See wildlife along the game viewing tracks towards the Nile Delta, then Buligi Circuit tracks. The animals rise in the early mornings, lions roam the road network to avoid the morning wetness of the dew. Lowell’s’ hartebeest gather in small colonies with their spiral horns and fawn colored coats in the morning sunlight. The Oribi, the smallest antelopes in the park with their distinct black facial patches are usually camouflaged in the short grass.

These small mammals live in pairs and prefer areas of short grass on the plains . The morning tour eventually finishes off at the delta and the Pakuba area. The River Nile then continues its journey into the Sudan and Egypt through a green forest. Over the horizon, the Blue Mountains and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the background. In the afternoon, return to your lodge to spend the humid afternoon at the swimming pool. Dinner and overnight at Murchison falls accommodations.

Day Three:          Morning breakfast then check out of the Lodge with a final drive through the park where the last sightings of Giraffe and Cape buffalo gets you to the Pakuba airfield. The afternoon flight from Murchison Falls National park finally departs to Entebbe International airport arriving around 4:30 pm.
