Day 1 Transfer to Murchison Falls.

You will be met by your guide for transfer to Murchison falls National Park. You are to have lunch on the way and arrival to the park will be in the afternoon. We check in and continue our journey to the River Nile so as to have a boat trip. On your way to the Nile, you pass through the famous Budongo forest where you will encounter a number of primate species including olive baboons, black and white colobus monkeys, and black faced vervet monkeys and so on. While on the boat trip, expect to see a number of aquatic birds, hippos, crocodiles, monitor lizards and so on. The boat trip continues to the bottom of the falls where you will have an opportunity to see how the Victoria Nile plunges over 45 meters over the Remnant rift valley wall thus creating the amazing Murchison Falls. You will also be able to see the rainbow that appears on the top of the falls all day. After here, check in lodge for evening accommodation.

The activity begins with a short briefing before you enter into the jungle to search for these creatures. You will track rhinos on foot under the guidance of an expert guide and an armed game ranger.
