The park is more than amazing, people working there are very welcoming, a safari by car and by boat is highly recommended, there is a small inconvenience with timing, but all works well if you keep track.

Must see. Spectacular. Best view is at the top of the falls. The force of the waterfall, the rainbow, the roaring sound, awesome work of nature.

For this review I am going to leave my tips and experiences along with cost when relevant (we are foreign non-residents). We went to the park for 2 days ($40 each per day), and slept there near Red Chili (we paid 20,000 shillings each but I definitely recommend booking in advance at Red Chili for their tents!). We got a... More

My wife and I drove to Murchison Falls National Park (Paraa Lodge) from Gulu in the north and loved every second of the drive. The drive to and through the park gives a wonderful sense of isolated, almost unending natural beauty and semi traditional lifestyle (prior to entering the park) and not once did we feel worried or unsafe. We... More

We took a boat safari upstream the calm Victoria Nile to the base of the falls stopping just tens of meters from the "Devil's Cauldron". Along the river we spotted lots of Hippos, Crocodiles and Elephants.Here we left the boat and started - quite heavy - hike to the Top of the Falls (approx. 1 hour),where the world's longest river...

Hire one of the professional guides - it made a huge difference! The second drive I went on with just the driver, and it was so mild after having one of the park guides! And keep those cameras ready, and extra memory cards! big animals, birds, and scenic views - so amazing.

The walk around the waterfalls is breathtaking.. Much better views than from boat tour, in my opinion. We spotted lions, elephants, giraffes, multiple species of antelope, warthogs, and much more.
