My favorite part of the experience was the Falls of course, they are so impressive, powerful, and I hope that they will not build a dam and reduce the debit the falls... Beware of the slippery rocks: if you fall, you won't belong to this world anymore. No selfies at the edge please. Keep the children away from this. I advise you to wear long sleeves, long trousers with sock over them to avoid the greedy and eager horsefly bites (their bites will even go through your shirt!!!) We saw elephants along the road, savannah monkeys, many types of antelopes that are grazing also along the road. The lions are nowhere to be found during the hot hours of the day. it's a treasure of nature at this time, due to this neverending rainy season, the ferry that takes us to the game drive was closed so they allowed us to cross the Nile with the small bridge for free.

A boat cruise up the river Victoria Nile takes one to the base of the trail leading to the top of the Murchison Falls. The vehicle in which one is travelling crosses the river by the ferry system and meets one at the end of the hike. One can see the Falls by reaching the end of the hiking trail by car, however, it is not as exciting as walking the trail. The hike slowly unfolds the three Falls. From the boat only two Falls can be seen. The third one is visible only during the course of the hike. The entire walk takes about an hour or less (depending on the fitness of the concerned person), is divided into three stages (according to our guide) and is not too difficult. The climb may be tiring but has a well defined trail and certain portion of the trail has hand rails also. I found that descending require to be negotiated with care as the path was quite slippery. Light clothes, a good pair of shoes suitable for hiking and sufficient water supply is suggested. Seeing the mighty Nile squeeze itself though a narrow gap is a sight to behold and ought to be seen by all visiting the Murchison Falls National Park.

Whenever I think of the amazing time I had at Murchison Falls National park, I cannot but help feel a twinge of sadness. Here, I had the most productive Safaris in the whole my trip in Uganda (comparable or better than Queen Elizabeth). the birding is awesome - tracked more than 70 species of birds in 2 days! Once you include the Top of Murchison Falls, the Boat Safari and the panoramic vistas of this Park, it is undisputedly the best wildlife destination in Uganda. But then, the discovery of Oil and the Government of Uganda's deplorable short sighted actions spell out doom for this remaining reserve of pristine nature. Rather than spend money for the oil to bypass the park, the authorities (prompted by insensitive Chinese debt and handouts) have decided to build a massive 'highway' (6-8 lane in width) - right through the park! This monstrous ugliness is the only thing that detracts from the beauty of this place! I do pray that something is done to rescue this park! Do go there before it is destroyed! Suggestions: if you are working on limited time for your trip - it might be difficult to include Murchison in your Uganda itinerary. But it might be worthwhile to include it by adding at least a couple of days to the your trip.

The thought of celebrating my birthday last year in the wild was an idea I always had and Murchison Falls National Park didn't disappoint. Eddy the tour guide prepared us for the visit by giving us a brief in what to expect an how to behave while in the wild. The site of the Lions, Giraffes, Elephant, Buffalo's, Rhinos and the so many bird species was breath taking. Talk of that beautiful sunset view. Eddy new when to catch the action like animals hunting for prey at dusk. We hadn't planned to be there for long but the experience was amazing. If you want to have a blast, plan for more days like a week or more and make sure Eddy Odong is your guide (+256704891370) He's very knowledgeable, a good time keeper, he's hospitable and very down to earth with a good sense of humor
