Day 1: Travel to Murchison Falls National Park - Top of the Falls Hike
Prepare for pick up from your hotel or place of residence or preferred pickup point at exactly 7:00am and drive to the great Murchison Falls National Park. Expect a brief stopover in Luwero to pick some fruits like oranges, mangoes, pineapples and jack fruit. Thereafter proceed to Masindi town for your lunch.
Drive out of Masindi town to a dirt road for about 25 minutes and get to our destination point the Murchison Falls National Park via the Kichubanyobo gate. Get clearance at the gate and continue for about 1 and 1/2 hours and get to the top of the Murchison Falls. You get to watch the mighty Nile squeeze through a tiny cleft of about 7 meters wide and explode into the world's strongest waterfalls. It is such a glorious sight with incredible picture moments.

Be up very early for your breakfast at around 6:00 am and set out for the morning game drive by 6:30 am. The timing aims at catching the elusive nocturnal and hunters such as the lions, jackals, leopards, hyenas, and grazing hippos. Explore the major game trails on the northern side of the Nile for big game sightings including giraffes, buffaloes, elephants, waterbucks, bushbucks, kobs, antelopes like Jackson's hartebeest and oribis among others.
After more than 4 hours of great wildlife viewing, return to your lodge for lunch. Thereafter set out for the 2:00 pm launch cruise along the Nile River.
