This tour is good for those with a limited number of holidays, it will take you to Murchison falls national park which is the Uganda's largest national park, you will have a hot air balloon safari and this will give you an opportunity to some of Africa's big five animals from the sky.   

ITINERARY

Pick up time for the safari is set at 7 am and location is either around Kampala or Entebbe. Mond safaris guide shall pick you up from your hotel and set off to travel to Murchison Falls north wards through small towns, Nakasongola plains and visit Ziwa Rhino sanctuary to track the few remaining Rhinos in this place. Lunch will be served en route and then proceed to Murchison Falls National Park, You will be welcomed by hundreds of baboons lined along the road. However endeavor to keep the windows closed as the baboons will be attracted to snatch items from the car. For bird lovers, be on the lookout for some species. Wood doves hoover in front of the car, and the Saddle-billed Stork is a common sight along the road. Enjoy panoramic views across the thick forest and there later on check in you lodge and overnight Accommodation: paraa safari lodge Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner

You should be up by 5.00am, take a quick cup of coffee or tea with a snack to warm your tummy and set out for a safari experience of quite a different nature. Today morning, you have the chance to explore the park from high up in the air as we are going on an unforgettable Hot Air Balloon Safari, flying above the national park, observe herds of elephants and giraffes walking across the savannah below us. We might even spot a pride of lions resting in the grass after their night’s hunt or cross River Nile which seems so tiny from up here. Back down on the ground, we have the opportunity to enjoy a nicely prepared bush breakfast, followed by a game drive through the park. The early start offers a better chance to find elusive predators such as Lions, Hyenas, Leopard and Jackal, as they are still out actively hunting in the morning hours. The game drive will last for approximately 3 hours, and you have the choice of having a packed breakfast on the game drive or return to the lodge for breakfast. Back at the lodge there is some time to relax. After lunch set out for a 2 hour Launch Cruise (boat safari) on River Nile, going upstream to the bottom of the Murchison Falls. Boat ride offers an array of wildlife sightings - crocodile, hippos, and lizards are a common sight throughout the cruise. Big game such buffaloes, elephants and antelopes can also be sighted drinking and cooling off the heat by the river banks and with a little luck, you might even spot a leopard resting in a tree close by the water then later transfer back to the lodge for overnight Accommodation: paraa safari lodge Meals plan: All meals Drinks: Drinking water
