3 DAYS 2 NIGHTS: MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK (MFNP)
Renowned for its scenic beauty and the spectacular falls from which it gets its name, MFNP has abundant flora and fauna to delight the visitor. From rolling savannah and tall grasslands to thick bush and woodlands, the diversity of this park never ceases to amaze visitors and residents alike.
No visit to MFNP would be complete without a visit to the magnificent falls. They can be viewed from the top where the Nile River narrows from 50 meters to crash through a 7 meter gorge, falling 45 meters to the rocks below. The three-hour cruise to the base of the falls is also unforgettable. One can experience the majesty of the Nile while on board, viewing abundant wildlife along the banks.
While on the game drives, Cape buffalo, Rothschild's giraffe, Uganda Kob, Jackson's hartebeest, and waterbuck are commonly seen. You may also spot Oribi, Bushbuck, Bohor reedbuck, Bush duiker, warthog and bush pig. Large carnivores include lion, leopard, and spotted hyena. Chimpanzees and olive baboons head the list of six species of primates found in the park. Crocodile and hippo will be seen and possibly the rare shoe bill stork as you cruise on the Nile.
