Murchison Safaris and activities

Murchison Safaris are also punctuated with boat cruises to the base of the falls and the delta region. A boat cruise to the base of the falls is seen as a highlight of all activities in Murchison Falls National Park due to the fact that many animals can be seen as you proceed up stream to see how water squeezes itself in a narrow gorge to later explode in what has been referred as the most powerful waterfalls on Planet earth. The boat cruise to the albert delta also offers opportunity for wildlife viewing including the rare shoebill stock. While in Murchison Falls National Park, one can trek chimps in Budongo forest as an add on to game drives and boat cruises in the area. Budongo forest has the highest number of wild chimpanzees and can be easily combined with safaris to Murchison Falls National Park. Its just a one to two hours drive from Murchison Falls National Park so can be easily combined with a visit to Murchison Falls National Park
