Depart Kampala very early in the morning with the driver and guide of Equatorial wild Safaris driving south through the verdant Ugandan countryside to Chobe Lodge near the scenic Karuma Falls. Our first stop of the day is Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. We disembark and continue our Journey on foot with the guide in order to get into close proximity of the Rhinos in the wild of Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary which covers many areas and is not only home to Rhinos but to a lot of other wildlife, birds including the elusive Shoe-bill Stork. There are swamps, nature trails, you can take a canoe ride and literally spend all day. Most come here to track Rhinos on foot.
It is amazing time to see these massive animals so close and there are some great opportunities for picture-taking and most visitors get some great shots of the Rhinos in Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary.
After our time with the Rhinos at Ziwa Rhino sanctuary we continue the short drive from here to Chobe Safari Lodge inside Murchison Falls National Park where we check-in around lunch-time. Enjoy lunch – your first meal at Chobe Safari Lodge and it will probe to be simply a culinary delight and a treat for the eyes and palate. The food exceeds the qualities of many fine Kampala restaurants in the African wild of Murchison Falls along the historic River Nile.
Relax and enjoy the various facilities such as the swimming pool, or the health-club and gym that has won an award from CNN as one of the best Gyms in the world with a view and here you are – wherever you turn you have a view of the River Nile bubbling by – wildlife such as Elephants, Hippos at times enter the Lodge area to the delight of the guests there.
Late afternoon guided Nature Walk with a Uganda Wildlife Authority Ranger – during this walk you most often see a variety of wildlife including Giraffes, antelopes, buffaloes, birds and much more. If walking is not suited for you – we take a late afternoon game drive on one of the Game Tracks near Chobe Safari Lodge.
Dinner at Chobe Safari Lodge – enjoy your first night in the African wild in Murchison Falls National Park staying in Chobe Safari Lodge.
Option: A Nile Perch Fishing trip can be organized for you from the shore – or from a boat on the river.

Meal Plan: Lunch – Dinner
Enjoy a cup of coffee and you are off for your morning game drive – or enjoy breakfast before the morning game drive – the choice is yours – Game drives can be started at 6:30 am and you can see the morning mist on the Savannah as Sun rises for another day in the African Wild of Uganda at Murchison Falls National Park.
Another option that can be arranged is a bush breakfast for you – hopefully others will have signed up for this most meaningful time making the price per person more affordable since there is a lot of planning that goes into a creating a breakfast in the Bush. Those that go for the Bush Breakfast option find it as one of the highlights of their safari in the African Bush.
The four-wheel drive safari vehicle is equipped with a pop-up roof for best game viewing and on a game drive we always use a Uganda Wildlife Authority Ranger to enhance your time on a game drive which results in more wildlife sightings and great background to the habits and ways of the wildlife found on a game drive.
