Murchison Falls National Park is absolutely amazing. You really have that sense of the "wild" when all you can see for miles is the savannah. We went on a sunrise and sunset safari, and were able to see Lions, Elephants, Giraffe, Warthogs, Buffalo, Monkeys, Hippo, and various species of Anteloppe. The park also contains Leopards and Hyenas, but we didnt... More

Forest Bodngo can do tours chimpanzees but it detailed can be find in the specific tour tips chimpanzees. The need to reach to the top of the falls for a... More

So beautiful its hard to take it all in. Four day safari and we barely scratched the surface. Were fortunate to see a leopard after a kill right after sunrise. Great place to actually witness the big 5 in their natural habitat. Breath taking views. Life changing experience. Looking forward to taking the family on their first safari.

This is about 12km off the main road through the park but well worth the detour, the falls are impressive and definitely worth a visit. People who visited from beneath by boat and from above by road said the view from the top was better.

Great park. Take the time to hire a guide. About $25 USD. Well worth it. Best times to go early, early morning and early evening to see the most animals.

Our team from Austin spent a few days here at the end of our time in Uganda. It was all set up for us by MIFIK Missions and Safaris who did a great job. Our drivers were excellent and friendly - we were impressed by their knowledge and how well connected they were - which provided for a richer experience.... More

The entrance fee is expensive - $40/day if you are a foreigner, In addition, there is this fee and that fee...I lost count. The safaria is okay, not too many animals, but the park is prettier than those in Kenya. I saw the waterfall from the top of the mountain, it's quite interesting.
