Let’s Go Travel Uganda has launched a new tour option in the iconic Murchison Falls, partnering with BushWonderers for the Murchinson Falls Walking Safari.

The tour is active and adventurous while giving you the freedom to explore areas unreachable by car. With approximately 3-5 hours of walking each day, the tour is a leisurely exploration in which you immerse your senses in nature.

BushWonderers founder said, “There is no better way to experience the African bush than on foot, engaging all of your senses: the whisper of the grass, the smells of the soil, the sights of animals.”

Encountering a variety of wildlife (antelopes, elephants, buffaloes, giraffes), guests will learn about (and touch, smell, observe and hear) a variety of plants, trees, birdlife, and insects.

Every walk is unique as the bush habitat changes continually and is shaped by dry and wet seasons.

Each walking safari consists of the following:

  • A guided walking safari experience
  • Accommodation in fully equipped & staffed tented camps
  • Max 6 – 8 guests
  • Four-star meals
  • Ability to customise the walking safari with other activities ( game drive / boat cruises )

The BushWonderers team is made up of well-trained and friendly staff including Camp Staff – manager, guide, cooks, waiters, attendants, drivers and UWA Rangers -, two to three rangers at all times for security and guiding.

Although all the safaris are customisable a typical day on a walking safari would look like this:

  • Morning Bush Walk – Typically begins at 07.00 lasting around 2.5hrs to 4.0hrs. Breakfast can be served prior to the walk or at a convenient break point during the walk.
  • Midday rest at the tented camp, where lunch is served as there are a vareity of books and games to keep your entertained.
  • Afternoon Bush Walk – A shorter walk lasting 1hr to 2hrs around the camp, or a game drive followed by a sundowner at Nyamsika Viewpoint and returing to the camp for dinner.
