This a safari for the person who does not have a lot of time or wishes to visit Southern Sudan when the rains make it impossible to visit Boma National Park. June,July,Aug, & Sept the roads into Boma National Park are not passable due to mud. However the road to Nimule has been rebuilt from Juba and we can pass all year. To increase the length of time of this safari we can add dates or you could add our 4 day safari to Northern Uganda.
From May 15 to Oct 15 we have set dates with a lower prices. See below.
Our team will go ahead of your group and prepare a temporary tented camp on the east bank of the Nile River,with with shower, toilet, full field kitchen-bar capable of making breads, generating ice; tents with bed cots; dinning tent; tables; chairs. This will be waiting for you on day 2. The park service has a motor launch we use to take you along the Nile River and cross to the other side looking for wildlife.
Nimule Park is becoming famous for a herd of elephants that have taken up residence (because they feel safe in the park), Hippos, Crocs, Kob, Duiker, Leopard and abundant river bird life. The park straddles the Nile River and is right on the border with Uganda.
There are no traditional native villages close to Nimule.

Queen Elizabeth National Park is understandably Uganda’s most popular tourist destination. The park’s diverse ecosystems, which include sprawling savanna,shady, humid forests, sparkling lakes and fertile wetlands, make it the ideal habitat for classic big game, ten primate species including chimpanzees and over 600 species of birds.Set against the backdrop of the jagged Rwenzori Mountains, the park’s magnificent vistas include dozens of enormous craters carved dramatically into rolling green hills, panoramic views of the Kazinga Channel with its banks lined with hippos, buffalo and elephants, and the endless Ishasha plains, whose fig trees hide lions ready to pounce on herds of unsuspecting Uganda kob.
Kibaale National Park
Kibale National Park contains one of the loveliest and most varied tracts of tropical forest in Uganda. Forest cover, interspersed with patches of grassland and swamp, dominates the northern and central parts of the park on an elevated plateau.The park is home to a total of 70 mammal species, most famously 13 species of primate including the chimpanzee.It also contains over 375 species of birds. Kibale adjoins Queen Elizabeth National Park to the south to create a 180km-long corridor for wildlife between Ishasha, the remote southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Sebitoli in the north of Kibale National Park.
