Day 1 of your 6 Days Murchison Falls: Pickup from Kampala or Entebbe – Drive to Murchison Falls National Park

After breakfast, a professional tour guide from monumental expeditions will pick you up and begin the trek to Murchison Falls National Park. Visiting Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Park will take you via Kampala city and then to the Uganda countryside, where you will watch rural people going about their everyday lives. You will pass through various small towns as well as the regions of Luwero and Nakasongola. In the early 1980s, Luwero was famed for harboring the National Resistance Army (present government) during their guerrilla fight with government forces. Nakasongola is a cattle-keeping corridor, therefore expect to see a lot of long-horned Ankole cattle grazing along the route.

You’ll make a stop at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to look for white rhinos. This sanctuary was established to safeguard Uganda’s last remaining rhinos after poachers wiped out most of the country’s national parks. You’ll learn a lot about animals and what’s being done to conserve them across the world. If all goes as planned, the breeding effort at the sanctuary will help raise the number of rhinos to the point where they can be reintroduced into national parks.6 Days Murchison Falls

Day 5: Chimpanzee trekking in Kyambura Gorge of Queen Elizabeth National Park

Before commencing your trek to Kyambura Gorge, get up early and eat breakfast. This subterranean forest is one of Queen Elizabeth National Park’s most spectacular features. Human action damaged the sole forest corridor Safari in Murchison Falls and Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda linking to neighboring woods, trapping a group of chimpanzees. The chimps could traverse the savanna to another forest, but it would be too perilous given the terrible predators wandering the plains. Researchers and environmentalists are concerned about their seclusion because inbreeding might result in mutations. The Kyambura Gorge is home to chimps as well as vervet monkeys, colobus monkeys, and baboons. Hippos and elephants live in the river that flows through the gorge. Several park animals visit the gorge during the dry months of the year in search of water and food.
