Red Chilli Murchison Falls 3 Day Big Five Safari
Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s oldest and largest conservation area, covering an area of 3,840 Km² and home to over 451 bird species (including the highly sought after and rare shoebill stork) and 76 different mammal species, including giraffe (which cannot be viewed in Queen Elizabeth National Park). Other game sightings regularly include lion, elephant, hippo, leopard, buffalo, hyena, warthog and various antelope. One of the highlights of this trip is the mighty River Nile, which bisects the park and is forced through an 8m² wide cleft in the rock at Murchison Falls, plunging into the Devil’s Cauldron below. The trip also takes in rhino tracking at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, south of Masindi, allowing a possible viewing of all the classic Big 5 game animals – lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino.
