Safari Overview

The 7 Days Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National park Safari is an exciting African Savannah Safari that gives you the experience of meeting famous Africa ‘Big 5’ game animals, lion, leopard, giraffe, white rhino, and the African elephant, in person. The sight and sound of the falls as the Mighty Nile River crashes through a 7-meter gorge before tumbling 40 meters down in a thunderous explosion makes a memorable assault on the senses and immediately turns into a very peaceful river whose water banks are swarmed with a profusion of water and land animals as well as birds. You will enjoy a memorable game drive, a boat cruise, and mesmerizing scenery.

Nested in the wild frontier region of Uganda, Kidepo Valley National Park is the most isolated park but it still stands out to be one of the virgin places every wildlife viewer can ever visit in Uganda.

Safari Highlights

  • Morning and Evening Game Drives

  • Boat ride on Kazinga Channel

  • Tree climbing lions

  • Community walk in Ishasha
