3-days Murchison Falls safari and Ziwa Rhino sanctuary take you to the north-western part of the country to Uganda’s oldest and largest conservation area. You will have a stop at the white rhinos, Ziwa rhino sanctuary. The park is well known for having the world’s strongest falls, Murchison Falls. Enjoy a boat cruise on Victoria Nile to the bottom of the falls and get to view the dramatic bottle between rock and water through a narrow gorge of about 8 m. A trip to these falls will probably be the biggest highlight of this trip. The park is also home to almost 76 mammal species and around 476 bird species, making it an ideal place for bird lovers.
