Murchison Falls is doable as a two day journey from Kampala. I usually go up one day and sleep at Boomu Women's Group located one kilometer before the south gate entrance. Then we have the entire second day to go on a game drive and take the boat down the Nile to the falls and the walk to the top... More

We spent two days and two nights here. Our lodge was on the Nile and we could hear all the wildlife at night, especially the hippos. The game drives were spectacular, including crossing of the Nile at sunrise. We visited the falls by boat and by road, and both were great experiences. Too many amazing details to describe here. Just... More

Great park and the chance to get up close to some of Africa's iconic animals. Took a guide for a morning safari and also did the nile cruise. Great place and everyone in our group really happy with the experience

Loved the falls themselves, the game drives (Deo our ranger was outstanding - how he spotted the things he showed us I have no idea), we saw lion, leopard (nearly) innumerable elephants giraffes (thee babies, how adorable) and buck. Hippos, crocs and vast numbers of bids on the river cruise. Our driver was Phoeni and our company was Wild Whispers.... More

There as plenty to see and lots of birds. We didn't see any predators, but there were lots of giraffe, a few elephants and lots of antelope. Boat excursions are available to the base of the falls and the delta.

We visited the park for 3 days, and saw some amazing stuff. The animal life on the north bank was really great, not the huge herds, but a good variety. We saw 3 Shoebill Stork's, lion, elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe, croc, and a variety of bucks and birds. The Falls are spectacular, you can easily spend an hour there .

Absolutely beautiful; the landscape, the animals (giraffe, lion, elephant, hippo, baboon, crocodile, warthog etc), the people who worked there, everything was great! There are some river cruses up the nile, that stop near the waterfall that you can stand on a rock and take pictures. Also you can drive to clearing and walk down and be at the very top... More

The beautiful rolling hills are teeming with animals, all doing their own thing and mostly ignoring people in their vehicles. It's almost as if the visitors are in the cages and the animals are outside looking in. Almost every bush has a different bird, including--in the Nile delta--the rare shoebill. We saw three together.
