During 6 Days Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls safari, you’ll see two of Uganda’s most popular and beautiful animal conservation areas: Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Parks. You can anticipate seeing all five members of the “big 5” (lions, rhinos, buffaloes, leopards, and elephants), as well as warthogs, giraffes, and Jackson’s hartebeests. Along with seeing the creatures, you will also have the opportunity to stop at the equator for some spectacular shots and visit the top of the famous Murchison Falls. Chimpanzee tracking takes place at the Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park. On the boat tour in Kazinga Channel, you should be able to see any mammals that you didn’t see during the game drives. Additional information about the two national parks.
6 Days Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls safari, In Uganda’s northwest is where you may find Murchison Falls National Park. It’s a piece of the larger Murchison Falls Conservation Area, which also contains the Karuma and Bugungu Wildlife Reserves. Famous Murchison Falls is a significant park feature. The Nile River rushes through a small gorge to create the falls before crashing to the ground with a loud boom. Chimpanzees, giraffes, lions, elephants, hartebeests, leopards, Uganda Kobs, Oribis, and other antelope species live in the park’s woods, riverine forests, and savanna, as well as lions, elephants, and other large carnivores.
On the other hand, Western Uganda is where you’ll find Queen Elizabeth National Park. 400 kilometers separate Kampala from the park. The Kyambura Gorge and the Maramagambo woodland are both located within Queen Elizabeth National Park. The park is well-known for its breathtaking scenery, which includes deep craters, crater lakes, and salt lakes. In addition to chimpanzees, lions, leopards, crocodiles, hippopotamuses, Uganda Kobs, buffaloes, elephants, and several antelope species, Queen Elizabeth National Park is also home to several other animal species. Lions that can climb trees are a well-known feature of Queen Elizabeth National Park.
As soon as you finish breakfast, a driver from Dav Safaris will come and pick you up to begin the trip to Murchison Falls National Park. As you go through Kampala city and then to the Ugandan countryside, you can see how the rural people go about their daily lives while visiting Queen Elizabeth and Murchison Falls National Park. Together with Luwero and Nakasongola areas, you will pass through a number of minor towns. The National Resistance Army (present government), which was engaged in a guerrilla conflict with the government forces in the early 1980s, was famously housed in Luwero. Since Nakasongola is a cattle-keeping area, you should observe several long-horned Ankole cattle grazing alongside the road. Don’t forget to ask the driver to make a brief stop for you in one of the local markets so you may inspect the fresh produce.
The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary will be your first trip as you learn more about white rhinos. Following the widespread poaching of rhinos from Uganda’s national parks, this sanctuary was established to safeguard the last remaining rhinos in the country. You will pick up a lot of knowledge about mammals and the efforts made to preserve them on a global scale. If everything goes as planned, the breeding effort at the sanctuary will help boost rhino populations to a point where they can be reintroduced into the national parks.
You will tour the sanctuary, eat lunch, and then travel to the Murchison Falls National Park. The top of Murchison Falls will be the first destination while at the park. You can watch as the river Nile squeezes down a small gorge, falls into a number of solid rocks, and then makes a final free fall before continuing on to Egypt through South Sudan.
Dinner and overnight stay will be at the Sambiya Lodge Bandas for low-cost guests, Pakuba Game Lodge for mid-range travelers, and Paraa Safari Lodge for luxury travelers.
As you wait for the driver to arrive and take you on the game drive, get up early and have breakfast. The Nile River’s banks will be within easy reach during the wildlife drive. You can see antelope, lions, elephants, Cape buffalo, warthogs, jackals, oribi, giraffes, hyenas, the Uganda Kob, and leopards here. When nocturnal creatures return to their burrows from a night of hunting, keep an eye out for them. In the morning, there is a lot of bird activity as they become enthusiastic about a new day of feasting.
After the wildlife drive is over, the driver/guide will return you to your lodge where you can have lunch and some refreshments before departing on the afternoon boat cruise. The boat tour travels upstream and comes to a close near “Devils Cauldron,” which is a location near the base of the Murchison Falls. Several of Africa’s notable animals can be seen during the boat tour on the Nile River. One of Africa’s highest densities of hippos and crocodiles can be found here. Elephants, Uganda Kobs, waterbucks, countless other antelopes, and water birds will all be visible. The variety of birds on display, which includes the secretive Shoebill stork, Goliath heron, Pelicans, bee-eaters, Egyptian geese, kingfishers, cormorants, and hornbills, will impress birdwatchers. The journey comes to a finish with a magnificent view of the Murchison Falls from the tranquil waters.

Get up early, eat breakfast, and then set out towards Kyambura Gorge. One of Queen Elizabeth National Park’s most fascinating attractions is this underground forest. The single forest corridor connecting this area to other woods was destroyed by human activity, trapping a group of chimpanzees there. The chimpanzees could travel through the savanna to another forest, but doing so would be extremely dangerous given the terrible predators that prowl the plains. Because inbreeding may result in mutations, their isolation has raised concerns among biologists and conservationists alike. Together with chimpanzees, vervet, colobus, and baboon monkeys, the Kyambura Gorge is also home to these primates. Elephants and hippos can be found living in the river that flows through the gorge. In search of food and water during the dry months of the year, a number of park animals penetrate the gorge.
Options for lodging Simba Safari Resort or Buffalo Safari Lodge are two options for vacationers on a budget. Although luxury guests will stay at Mweya Safari lodge, budget travelers will stay at Katara Lodge.
Following all the incredible events in the park, take your time getting up, eating breakfast, and getting ready for the trip back to Entebbe or Kampala. On your way to Kampala, you will pass through the Ishasha plains, where you can see the Ugandan lions that can scale trees. To get to other districts, including Mbarara, you will take a different route. Beware of the stunning scenery and natural features in western Uganda, particularly Kasese. At the Masaka equator crossing, make a photo stop. You will have lunch and browse the gift stores while at the equator crossing.
