Very Nice NP. We saw lions, hyena's (7.15) attacking a young buffelo and even a Leopard in a tree. Also a big Group of lions, many giraffes, elephants; there are no zebra's. In the np you can take a boat to the falls (and see crocodiles and a lot of hippo's) or to the delta; Also very beautiful .

Amazing park full of stunning views and animals. Just be prepared if the ferry breaks - you can wait for half a day or even more at the same place waiting ferry to be repaired (they had just one)

The best part of the park is the northern Bank cos the number of wildlife seen in the open Savannah... More

A wonderful way to see African wildlife. Literally just through the gates we saw a family of baboons on the side of the road. Also saw warthogs & hippos & elephants just driving to/from our accom. Excellent safaris within the park, both on land and on the river. Highly recommended

I took a rivercruise down the Nile to see Murchison Falls. Wonderful! Saw the Goliath Heron, the purple heron, the squaco heron- so many birds. Finally saw the Northern Carmine Bee Eater on this trip. Drove to the top of the Falls on my last day- you must do this. Even in the dry season, the sight is spectacular. There... More

Did the boat tour it was about a 3 hour. Saw lots of hippos, elephants, crocodiles. There is a charge to walk to the top of the falls. We ended up driving to the top on our way out of the park the next day. With no extra charge.

We had a tour in the Northern bank of the Nile in Murchison falls national park. I truly confirmed that this is the only park in Uganda where one can find Giraffes Towers as they browse tree leaves and buds. We all enjoyed watching these gentle giants in the savanna grassland.

We did a day trip to Murchison Falls with Buffalo Safari Camps. We opted for a short game drive and the boat trip to the Falls. The guide, Rogers, was fabulous and the whole experience was well organised and at a great price. The vehicles were of a good standard and well-maintained. The wildlife were kind enough to appear right... More

Here is the paradise for animals, we saw a lots of elephants. Better wake up early to see the sunrise, the sun here is red in colour in a perfect circle shape. This is the biggest park in Uganda and is a must to come.
