We have just returned from a 3 day/2night trip to Murchison Falls National Park with Border-less Tours - and it was great! A trip to the Falls, an early morning game safari, an afternoon cruise safari and a stay at the stunning Paraa Safari Lodge - and all for a considerably lower price than we were quoted by others.

We entered Murchison Falls through one of the small northern gates. Here we encountered the first heavy duty Halliburton truck. Weird, what were they doing here. Constructing some roads or bridges? Further down in the park we understood what the trucks were doing there: supplying the oil rigs and constructing the "no entry" roads to the rigs. A horrible sight.... More

In different parts of this amazing place we saw chimps, giraffe, buffalo, all kinds of gazelle, beautiful birds, hippos and some crocks. Towards the end we saw the falls...I will go back if I could

The falls are beautiful and we saw more animals here than anywhere else we visited. Our guide was terrific - would definitely recommend it!

This was a visit back after more than 45 years! I used BigFiveSafaris in Kampala to organise this trip and I must say this operator has excellent knowledge and fantastic guides who really know their stuff. We had a an open top 4 x 4 land cruiser for this safari which was done over 3 days. Early morning start from... More

Nice park, not too far from Kampala. A day trip, however, would be difficult. Saw lots of elephants, various ungulates, thousands of baboons, birds. No lions :(

The guide had alot of knowledge concerning... More

When I first went to Murchison falls National park located in Northern Uganda, about 303km from Kampala, I thought I had gone to Heaven, the cool water of the falls made it all to cover the heat that we met on that lower altitude of 600 meters above sea level. The sound of water here made me forget the stress... More

I'd honestly say that we got as much joy from ordinary rural Uganda as from the park, but it was wonderful to take the boat trip along the Nile, up to the falls, and there is easy access to food (I recommend the Red Chilli especially for vegetarians), accommodation, and guides (especially useful for going hiking) so it's a good...
