Murchison Falls 3 day Falls and Game Safari

This is Red Chilli’s signature tour and is highly popular, with scheduled departures every other day. Perfect for those looking for a classic safari experience on a budget!

Tour Details

Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s oldest and largest conservation area, covering an area of 3,840 Km² and home to over 451 bird species (including the highly sought after and rare shoebill stork) and 76 different mammal species, including giraffe (which cannot be viewed in Queen Elizabeth National Park).

Other game sightings regularly include lion, elephant, hippo, leopard, buffalo, hyena, warthog and various antelope. Arguably the highlight of this trip is the mighty River Nile, which bisects the park and is forced through an 8m² wide cleft in the rock at Murchison Falls, plunging into the Devil’s Cauldron below. This Is Red Chilli’s signature tour and is highly popular, with scheduled departures every other day. Perfect for those looking for a classic safari experience on a budget!

14.00 Arrive at the Top of the Falls, where you may take your packed lunch if you have not already enjoyed it en route! (Please bring your own packed lunch or order from Red Chilli when booking your trip.) Take a guided walk around the thunderous Murchison Falls, with an optional mini-hike to view the sister falls, Uhuru, which was created in 1962 when the river burst its banks.

16.30 Travel on to the Red Chilli Rest Camp on the south bank of the Nile at Paraa (approx arrival time 17.30). Accommodation consists of safari tents with twin beds, including bedding and shared bathroom facilities (but not towels).

Enjoy dinner and drinks and a camp fire when weather permits.

Day 2Depart for the ferry crossing to the North Bank

6.45 Depart for the ferry crossing to the North Bank, taking along a packed breakfast from Red Chilli. Enjoy a 4-hour game drive around the Buligi game tracks, which stretch between the Victoria and Albert Niles, and down to the Nile-Lake Albert Delta. Most of the park’s game and birdlife can be viewed from here, but please note – nothing is guaranteed!

11.00 Take the ferry back to the South Bank and enjoy lunch and a well-deserved break at Red Chilli Rest Camp.

14.30 Depart for a 3 hour boat cruise along the Victoria Nile to the base of the Falls, Along the way, you will be able to observe a wide variety of birds and wildlife, including numerous hippos and crocodiles – as well as breathtaking scenery. Cold drinks are for sale on board.
