Ziwa White Rhino Sanctuary – Murchison Falls National Park
Entebbe International Airport
This 7 Days Murchison Falls & Kipedo Valley Tour transfers you to Murchison Falls and Kidepo valley national parks for memorable experiences.
If you’re looking to get close to never-before-seen creatures, a detailed journey of two of Uganda’s most treasured national parks may be what you’re after. The tour kicks off with a visit to Uganda’s only rhino population before we journey to Kidepo National Park. The unique feature of this park is the two distinctly different Kidepo and Narus valleys and the different ecosystems that characterise them.
Towards the end of the tour, you’ll transfer to Murchison Falls which is a prime location to spot hippos and crocodiles on the portion of the Nile which lies within. Don’t forget that throughout, you will always find plentiful opportunities to spot birds and creatures hidden in the midst of the thick forests.
