Day 2:  Whole day Exploring Murchison falls National Park

After an early breakfast, tour the Northern section of Murchison with a high concentration of savannah wildlife. Enjoy game viewing and photography of elephants, buffalos, waterbucks, giraffes, Uganda kob and lions, the leopards (if you are lucky) plus a variety of bird species.

Return to your accommodation for lunch as you prepare for a 3 hour boat trip to the bottom of the falls. This trip is said to be the highlight of the safari in Murchison falls since it allows you to get up close to the animal species within the water. Cruise past huge hippo pods, crocodiles and numerous aquatic birds adorning the north bank on the way to the mighty waterfalls. You will have the opportunity to take thousands of pictures, so carry your camera with you if you like.

Also, proceed for a drive / hike (if you like) to the top of the falls. The hike is a strenuous one but the thrill on reaching the top is unforgettable. Miss it only if you must! You will return to your accommodation for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Exit Murchison Falls National Park and transfer to Kidepo Valley National Park

If you ever thought of being in the real wild alone, then Kidepo is the perfect place to go. Kidepo Valley NP is Uganda’s most pristine, unexplored game reserve teaming with abundance of wildlife. While here, you get the true meaning of being in the African wilderness.

It is also in Kidepo Valley that you will have the opportunity to get the insight about the Karamojong Nomadic Pastoralists of Uganda.

You will have breakfast at the accommodation and then hit the road for Kidepo. This will be a long drive but you will be treated with some spectacular scenery along the drive that will make the drive even seem shorter.

You will reach and do little but check into your accommodation, relax, enjoy your dinner plus the overnight rest.

Day 4: Remarkable Kidepo Valley National Park Game drive

Have breakfast then set off to explore Kidepo Valley National Park. You will go for game sighting in the Narus Valley in the south of the park. This is the section of Kidepo that has savannah grasslands mixed with acacia woodland. It is also the area of the park with permanent water sources throughout the year and for that matter most of the animals are found in this part of the park.

During the hot afternoons, many animals collect around water sources. Expect to see large herds of Buffaloes, lots of Zebras, and antelope species and surely the lions.

You will return to the accommodation for lunch and a brief repose.
Later, undertake a community visit where you will have the opportunity to interact with the local people – the Karamojong. You will spend a wonderful afternoon/evening with the Karamojong people and have an insight of their way of life and beliefs. At the end of the day, you will retire to your accommodation where you will enjoy your dinner and overnight rest.

Day 5: Further Kidepo Valley National park exploration

Day 5: Kidepo Valley National Park further exploration

Enjoy your breakfast then embark on yet another game drive into the park but this time head to Kidepo Valley in the northern area. The biggest highlight in this area is the famous sand bed of River Kidepo that is a seasonal river that does not flow during the long dry spells. It is lined with lush Borassus palms, creating a sight akin to an oasis in a desert. Enjoy the sights and sounds of birds in the Borassus palm.
Be on the look for ostriches, cheetah (if you are lucky) and tortoises along the way.

Return for lunch at your accommodation and thereafter spend the afternoon relaxing at the accommodation (probably enjoying the sounds and sight of the area).
