Day 1 - Nile Water Safari

Your private flight will depart early from Kajjansi airstrip to make the 1hr 30min flight to touch down on the edge of Murchison Falls NP at Bugungu airstrip. Your vehicle will be waiting for you to transfer to your lodge on the banks of the River Nile for an early lunch with the sounds of hippos pods calling across the water. In the early afternoon walk down to your lodges private docks to embark on a private water safari to Murchison Falls. Meander upstream to the thundering base of the falls, passing giant Nile crocodiles, hippo pods, and a plethora of birdlife inhabiting the riverbanks. On reaching the waterfalls, either return downstream by boat to your lodge or follow the trail up to the top of the falls. Here you can marvel at the splash and rainbows of the Nile crashing through a seven-metre gap in the rock face before being driven to your lodge for sundowners and dinner.

Tonight's Accommodation - Bakers Lodge, Murchison Falls NP.

Day 2 - Rolling Savannah Plains

Rise early and depart for a game drive, following in the footsteps of Emin Pasha, Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemingway and Theodore Roosevelt to discover the savannah plains of Murchison Falls NP. Early morning light will provide excellent photo opportunities and usually plenty of animal activity before the heat of the day sets in. With an expert ranger seek out elephants, leopards, lions, warthogs, giraffes and large game herds including buffalos, Uganda kobs and waterbucks. You can spend as long as you please exploring the various game circuits until crossing back onto the southern banks of the River Nile for a lazy lunch back at your lodge. You will then have a few hours to relax at your lodge before being transferred back to Bugungu airstrip to make the return flight back to Kajjansi airstrip, arriving before dusk.
