Safari Itinerary

DAY 1:
Transfer to Budongo Central Forest Reserve

This is a most delightful area of Murchison Falls National Park. Budongo Forest is an oasis of tranquility where one can truly feel at one with nature. This is the oldest Mahogany Tree Forest in East Africa – and steps have been taken to preserve this most wonderful forest with its tall and majestic trees. The Forest has been under constant threat by loggers out to make a few shillings instead of looking to the future and preserving this magnificent forest for future generations. Budongo Forest will seem like an oasis to you, the quiet being broken by the sounds of birds, primates nearby – very different from a forest in North America or Europe. Certainly a place to come and spend a couple of days in peace with creation.
