Overview

Take a tour of two of Uganda's most beloved national parks on a 6-Day Kidepo Valley NP & Murchison Falls NP Budget Tour ! with Exodus Safaris as we journey through the pristine wilderness of Uganda's most beloved national parks, Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley. This exclusive package offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the best of both worlds, from thrilling wildlife encounters to breathtaking natural wonders, all at a price that won't break the bank.

Our adventure begins in the heart of Budongo Forest, where we'll embark on an unforgettable trek through the lush greenery in search of the elusive chimpanzees. With six habituated chimp families calling this ancient forest home, sightings are virtually guaranteed, offering a rare glimpse into the lives of these intelligent and social primates. Follow experienced guides as they lead you through dense jungle trails, listening for the telltale calls of the chimps echoing through the trees.

From Budongo Forest, our journey continues to the iconic Murchison Falls National Park, where we'll marvel at the breathtaking beauty of the mighty Nile River as it plunges over the edge of a dramatic escarpment. Enjoy top-down views of the falls from various vantage points, capturing unforgettable moments against the backdrop of sweeping vistas and cascading water. Then, embark on a leisurely boat ride up the river, where you'll encounter a variety of wildlife, including hippos, crocodiles, and a myriad of bird species.

But the adventure doesn't end there. As we traverse the game drives of both Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National Parks, keep your eyes peeled for sightings of lions, elephants, giraffes, and more, against the backdrop of stunning savannah landscapes. Finally, conclude your journey with an exhilarating rhino tracking experience at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where you'll have the opportunity to observe these majestic creatures up close in their natural habitat.

At Exodus Safaris, we believe that every safari should be an unforgettable experience, regardless of your budget. Join us as we embark on this budget-friendly tour of Uganda's most beloved national parks, where every moment promises adventure, discovery, and memories to last a lifetime.
