Day 2: Morning Game Drive & afternoon boat cruise

After breakfast, enjoy a morning game drive in the northern sector of Murchison Falls. Look out for elephants, buffalos as well as night dwellers including the leopards, lions and hyenas, which, with a little luck, we will see before they take cover in the thicket shade as the afternoon sun rises.

After lunch, head for a cruise to the bottom of Murchison Falls where we’ll enjoy unique sights of aquatic wildlife such as hippos, crocodiles and aquatic birds and the breathtaking views of the waterfalls.

Return to the lodge for dinner and the night.

Day 3: Chimpanzee tracking & Transfer to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

After breakfast, we’ll transfer to Budongo Forest head offices for a briefing.
This trek will take you deep into a tropical forest where you will see chimpanzee families. You’ll gain an insight into the conservation efforts and how visits such as yours are crucial to the conservation efforts of chimpanzees in the wild.
Once with the chimps, spend up to one hour with them as you watch them go about their daily business. Return to the offices where you’ll be transferred to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
