The waterfall is really amazing when we went there it was beautiful sunny day. As it is in most of Ugandan attractions there is no toilet facilities or running water so it is best to consider and prepare for that.

Was here with clients and had a thrilling time. The experience of watching a lioness hunt for its meal was the climax for me. Enjoyed the boat cruise to the gigantic murchison falls too. Sitting by the bonfire listening to the little sounds of hippos chewing on grass was interesting. The game drive was full filling as we got to... More

During our visit at Murchison Falls NP we made a boat trip to the falls and also we made the walk to the top of the falls. On the boat trip you can see lots of animals and water birds like many species of Kingfishers and hippo's of course. The views of the falls from the boat are stuning but... More

Quite an interesting set of Rapids and falls. Worth a look from both top and bottom though boats are restricted from going close to the falls from the bottom, so bring a telephoto lens. Note: this reviewer spoilt by previous experiences of natural environments like Victoria Falls

It was an a very good experience. We explored 2 Game Drives. One via Boat and explored various types birds and other animals sea the River. On the other day, we took the Game Drive to the Park. It was awesome experience since we got an opportunity to view mostly all the type of animals available inside the Park.

So much power, the noise and sight of these falls are unforgettable. The River Nile cruise is beautiful and the game drive will give you more amazing memories of this stunning location.

First go to the top of the falls which are spectacular. Afterwards take the Nile-river cruise which leaves from Paraa around 2 PM. Our boat (run by "Wild Frontiers") was staffed by two expert game- and bird-spotters who made the trip an outstanding experience with beatiful views of birds and other fauna (of course, also the crocodiles!).

Murchison Falls is an excellent game park. You will see many animals and you won't have to wait very long as they are everywhere. Make sure you visit the falls itself as it's very impressive. We came here with a man known as "Taxi Sam". He is private taxi driver from Macindi (town near Murchison Falls) and usually brings tourists... More
