We spent 4 days in Murchison Falls NP. One night at the Budongo Eco lodge where we did a chimp trek and 3 nights at the Paraa lodge on the north side of the Nile River. I would definitely recommend staying on the north side of the river so you avoid waiting for the ferry to take you across for... More

As many others we went to Uganda for the gorillas and discovered this gem on the way. Elephants, giraffes, lions, buffalo, hippos... gorgeous and varied landscapes, not many other cars: all in all a wonderful safari experience

In MFNP we took the boat trip on the Victoria Nile to the base of Murchison Falls. The launch trip takes about three hours return. You can also take it 1.45hrs then get off and climb to the top of the falls. You need to pre-arrange this option and have your driver wait for you at the top of the... More

Fabulous game park, stayed here for 3 nights and did a game drive daily. Saw lions, giraffes, hippos, elephants, buffaloes, chimps, crocodiles. The park is full of kobs too. The weather was perfect and our guide was knowledgeable. The falls are majestic. Definitely worth every penny.

The park is beautiful, we were on a sunset safari, so we didnt see the "falls", the only complaint I had was that our drivers spent little time when we saw animals we wanted to take pictures of.

Murchison falls are the best place to visit while in Uganda. The falls are superb both from top and bottom including a boat ride on 17km. There are hippos, birds, elephants, crocodiles along the way. The guides on the boat are also knowledgeable
