Rhinos, Murchison Falls National Park

The sanctuary is not only home to the rhinos but also to approximately 20 other species of wildlife as well as 300 different bird species highlighting Uganda’s unique biodiversity and emphasizing the importance of conserving it. The conservation effort is proving successful as we see the numbers of wildlife growing within the sanctuary.
Game Drive and Boat Ride
Go for an early morning game drive. This is a beautiful drive across Borassus Palm Forest and grassland savannah down to Lake Albert where the Albert Nile heads north. Drive in the open African savanna in search of Lions, Leopard, Hyena, Buffalo, Elephant, Jackson Hartebeest, Oribi, Waterbucks, Uganda Kobs, and enjoy spotting various Bird species such as the Secretary Bird, Black Chested Snake Eagle, Tawny, and Marshal Eagles Carmine and Swallow Tailed Bee-Eaters, and many more….. In the afternoon, go for a boat ride up the Nile, to Murchison falls, whence the park derives its name. Enjoy these spectacular falls. The Nile squeezes through a 7meter gap, and at the bottom bask Huge Nile Crocodiles. You have an option to climb the cliff, to the top of the falls revealing another startling side of these falls. Return to Hotel by car.
