From Kampala we will depart for the most beautiful protected area in Uganda: Murchison Falls National Park.

Early morning embark on a half-day game drive on the northern bank of the Nile, escorted by a game ranger. Wildlife in this part includes the Rothschild Giraffe, elephant, Jackson hartebeest, lions, oribis, waterbucks and a variety of savannah woodland birds. In the afternoon we will go on a Nile cruise for game viewing at close quarters; this is a paradise for hippos and crocodiles. Dinner and overnight at Red Chilli Rest Camp.

Day 4: JINJA

Ready for a full day of adventure? Then start rafting at the Source of the Nile. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and thundering rapids of the White Nile. And do not forget to watch the incredible birdlife as you drift quietly between the rapids of the river.
Those who prefer a more peaceful experience of the Nile can also decide to go for a wonderful river journey for the whole family. Instead of choosing the wildest rapids, we drift swiftly between beautiful forested islands, bounce down smaller rapids and explore the least known channels. Children will love floating down the calmer section of the river!
At the end of this exciting day we head back to Kampala for the night.
