Your safari begins with a scenic drive from Kampala to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Along the way, you’ll pass through rural villages and lush countryside, getting a glimpse of local life. Upon arrival, settle into your accommodation and take some time to relax and prepare for the exciting days ahead.
Wake up early for a sunrise game drive in Queen Elizabeth National Park. This is the perfect time to spot wildlife as they are most active during the cooler hours of the morning. Keep your eyes peeled for lions, elephants, buffaloes, and an array of antelope species. The park is also known for its diverse birdlife, so be sure to bring your binoculars.
In the afternoon, embark on a boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel. This 32-kilometer-long waterway connects Lake Edward and Lake George, attracting a plethora of wildlife. Watch as hippos wallow in the water, crocodiles sunbathe on the banks, and a variety of bird species soar above. The boat cruise offers a unique perspective and allows for some excellent photo opportunities.

As the sun sets, witness a beautiful African sunset before returning to your lodge for a well-deserved dinner.
Today, experience one of the highlights of your safari: a boat safari on the Nile River to Murchison Falls. This exhilarating journey takes you upstream, passing by pods of hippos and basking crocodiles. As you approach the falls, you’ll feel the mist on your face and hear the thunderous roar of the water. This is a truly awe-inspiring spectacle and the perfect opportunity to capture breathtaking photos.
After the boat safari, embark on a hike to the top of the falls. This challenging but rewarding trek offers panoramic views of the Nile as it crashes down into a 43-meter-wide gorge. Take your time to take in the beauty of the surroundings and feel the sheer power of nature.
Spend the morning exploring the northern part of Murchison Falls National Park, known as the “Buligi Circuit.” This area is famous for its diverse wildlife, including the elusive shoebill stork, which can be spotted in the marshy areas.
