Overview

3 Days White Water Rafting Murchison Falls Uganda Safaris overview

Murchison is Uganda’s only National park that has all “Big Five”. Buffalos, elephants, lions, leopards are best to be seen in the northern part (above the Nile). Rhinos were sadly extinguished but are now being bred again in the rhino sanctuary south of the park; 40 to 50 are planned to be released into the wild in approximately 30 years.

The Nile itself hosts one of Africa’s highest hippo and crocodile populations and an immense variety of birds including the world’s most accessible wild population of the rare shoebill stork.
