 3 Day safari will take you to Uganda’s largest parks known as Murchison Falls National Park, situated in Northwestern Uganda on an area of 3,840 sq. km, gazetted in 1926 as a game reserve. It is classified with Savannah grasslands, and the Victoria Nile that flows through separating it into two (the northern and southern bank). Murchison Falls is home to over 451 bird species such as the Great Blue Turaco, Goliath heron, the Shoebill, and the dwarf kingfisher among others, 76 mammal species, a big number of Nile crocodiles and above all the magnificent and thunderous Murchison Falls squeezing their way through a gorge that is 8m wide.
