Trip Overview

Murchison Falls is a Lost World, as befits a park that is home to the largest crocodiles in Africa, where these primeval reptiles unchanged in nearly 150 millions years grow up to 6 meters long, bask on the banks of the Nile, underneath the thunderous falls from which the park takes its name.  Giant Tiger fish and Nile Perch swim silently through waters of the river itself, daring those who take to the waters to test their resolve in the catch and release fishing for which the area is famous. Huge elephant herds are rumored to contain some of Africa’s biggest tusks and the holy grail of birds, the 5ft tall, prehistoric Shoebill  Stork, hunts among the reeds in an area famed for its sightings of this enigmatic creature.

If this 6 day Murchison Falls Wildlife Safari still isn’t wild enough for you, then head to the budongo forest, where chimpanzees crash their way through the canopies as hornbills and fly-catchers take flight.  After all this adventure, crack open a cold beer and relax at the exclusive Bakers Lodge camp, sumptuous dinners are followed by tales around the campfire.
