7 Days Best of Northern Uganda
Our 7 Days Best of Northern Uganda will take you to the most visited conservation areas of the country in the north from the Murchison Falls National Park to the Kidepo Valley National Park, The north seems semi-arid with much drier climatic conditions compared to other regions and yet so rewarding with wildlife! The Murchison Falls National Park hosts quite a number of animal species including the so-called big 4 of the wildernesses (Lions, elephants, Buffaloes, leopards) in the early 90’s there were rhinos present in the park however due to population pressure these went extinct from the massive poaching, the Kidepo valley national park is the loneliest of ecosystems standing alone while presenting a special animal count of unique species for example the rock hyrax.
