43 meters, then flows westward into Lake Albert. Murchison houses the

complete the African BIG 5 game animals, you’ll stop over at Ziwa Rhino
Sanctuary to visit the last of the white Rhinos, Winding up with Chimpanzee

the roadside. Your first main stop is at the Ziwa Rhino sanctuary. This
sanctuary was established to protect the few remaining white rhinos in Uganda
after 99% were killed by poachers. After tracking the rhinos, you will proceed to
have lunch at the nearby Masindi town
After Masindi, you will proceed to Murchison Falls National Park and proceed
