We took a very brief side trip to Murchison falls while working in Uganda during March, 2015. We hired a vehicle for one full day and one half day in the park and were able to see pretty much everything in that time. The first day in the park, we hired a guide (only costs $20) at the park gate.... More

Amazing park. We went with a private boat tour, rather than the official UWA boat, which was great as it was on our own terms and we didn't have to wait around. The wildlife was abundant; much more so than on a drive-by safari. Hippos, buffalo, deer, even baby crocodiles, and the falls are impressive too.

We travelled with Rolandsafaris.com through Uganda in December 2014. We (eight persons) had a great experience with Roland. He is very knowledgeable about the country and the local animals. We felt us very safe with him. He speaks English, German and Dutch. His car is perfect to discover the beautiful African savanna. I would recommend this safari. We did a... More

Wow! Elephants galore, giraffes everywhere, all kinds of deer, warthogs, buffalo, lions, leopard, birds, and anything else you could want to see. If you are in Uganda it is a must to go here way over any other place, even gorillas!

Lions, hippos, giraffe, buffalo, warthog, crocodiles, elephants, baboons, antelope, gazelle....all there just hanging out waiting for you to look at them. You can get quite close to them. Roads are very very bumpy, and sometimes not really "roads". So expect that. Take the boat tour. Hire a land guide. And it's well worth the barely passable road to go out... More

We had only 2 days/ 1 night at our disposal and I must say Travel Light Africa Limited organized for me a splendid safari within a very short notice. The driver was well informed,clean and kind. The car was very clean and in... More

The itinerary was amazing firstly with a chimp trek in the forest ,then with a walk down to the nile to get a great view of the fall plus an evening at Yebo camp where local musicians were playing and we all handed around a campfire with the local...

Roads are pretty good, tons of giraffes, great guides! Highly recommend getting a guide to help you find lions and explain everything you are seeing in the park. The Nile safari was longer than we had wanted (more than 3 hours) but offered great views of birds, crocs and hippos.
