On this Uganda safari, you are to track the White Rhinos in the wilds of Ziwa sanctuary in Nakasongola. It's the only natural habitat for Rhinos in the country but more to them is wildlife like Bushbucks, Oribi etc. In Murchison falls national park, you will browse the savannas for wildlife viewing in this jewel of a park. You will track Chimpanzees in Budongo Forest and as well trek the misty Bwindi for the Gorillas.
Murchison Falls is known for its powerful roaring falls which Sir Samuel Baker described as "the most important object in the entire course of the River Nile". The falls are 7 meter wide and 45meters deep, characterized by a misty spray and so a visit to the top is the highlight of safaris to the park.
Bwindi Impenetrable forest is located in the southwestern part of Uganda. It's a misty shrouded tropical mountain forest where you will trek the Mountain Gorilla Great Apes. Trekking in the forest is a remarkable African adventure and meeting the Gorillas is dazzling and emotional.
