We had never been on a safari, but I can't imagine it gets any better than this. We were able to see all the animals we hoped to. The scenery was incredible and the falls were breathtaking. The riverboat ride was fun and interesting and the hike up the falls provided great photo opportunities. I would have loved to spend... More

Park is quite good with lots to see - perhaps best park in Uganda. Hundreds of elephants and giraffe, cats are scarce but can see lions and leopards if lucky. I have been 3 times and by far had best game viewing including 8 lions. Bird viewing is excellent also and a trip to the falls is a must.

The guide was very knowledgeable and told us loads of great facts and history about the park. The falls themselves selves are majestic and the walk was one of my favourite things I did in Uganda. Yebo tours made sure... More

A visit to Uganda without visiting Murchison Falls is unthinkable. We were there for a couple of days and took in a game drive (Elephant, Giraffe, Jackal, Antelopes, Mongoose, Buffalo), a river safari (Elephants, Hippos, Crocodiles) and a trip to the top of the Falls which was a truly awesome diversion. We also saw Baboons, Monkeys and a ridiculous amount... More

I did the three day safari that I booked at the hostel in Kampala. Well worth the time and money! Day one we went to the falls, which are impressive! Seeing them from the top an up close is a bit of a thrill and also relaxing in its own way. The next day we did a game drive in... More

The wildlife in the park wasn't outstanding compared to other parks in Africa but lots of elephants hippos and crocs. The hike up to the top of the falls is defiantly recommended.

excellent wildlife viewing, feels less developed and less busy than similar parks in kenya. Beautiful scenery and a boat trip on the Nile and up to the falls is an added bonus

Excellent Park - lots of good tracks so easy to self drive around the Park. Great game viewing along the marsh. Excellent boat trips to the falls (beware of crocs and tsetse flies though). Also a good walk and viewing platform at the top of the falls. Great place to relax and you are likely to see lots of Game.... More
