Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Beginning with a panoramic drive northwest through the famous Luwero Triangle and Masindi Town, Stop over at Masindi hotel for lunch. Proceed to Murchison Falls NP via Budongo forest, drive to the top of the spectacular fall where you can see the Nile's perfected beauty, and marvel as it compresses and squeezes itself from over 1 kilometer wide down through a 7-meter canyon.

The 150-meter drop of the falls creates a thunderous roar and a beautiful rainbow in a plume of spray - the best thing to ever happen to the Nile. Finally, you can enjoy the sunset as you return to the superb comfort and service of Paraa Safari Lodge / Red Chilli river camp /sambiya river lodge. (LD)
