3 Days Murchison Falls Safari Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary Tour under the Kampala Uganda 3 Day Tours offers excellent game viewing drives with great wildlife sightings, White Nile River Falls at a close range on boat safaris and wild rhino sightings at Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Ranch.

Murchison Falls National park is located 300 kilometers North West of Kampala about a 5 hour drive. The park is the largest in Uganda and it is traversed by the great Nile River which creates unique waterfalls.

While there you have great chances of seeing four of the “Big five” – elephants, lions, buffaloes and leopards.

A visit to the top of the falls offers a spectacular experience where several million gallons of water squeeze in a hardly 7 meter gap before it plunges into thunderous echo falling down 40 meters.

A boat cruise at the bottom of the falls gives you an amazing experience of the 3 Days Murchison Falls Safari Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary Tour and the possibilities of viewing large Nile Crocodiles and Hippos at a close range.

Ziwa Rhino Wildlife Ranch offers you the opportunity to observe wild rhinos at a very close and safe distance.
