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.

My wife and I decided to travel to Murchison Falls National Park for our first safari experience in Uganda. We traveled with Red Chilli Safari Tours because we wanted something that was short, budget friendly, but still packed with lots of activities. We definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive safari to MFNP. Our experience at... More

Falls are stunning, roads are good, game is varied. UWA service could be improved. Would recommend the boat trip.

Great place for bird watching. Great to have a look at the fastest running rapids and a look at all most animals.

Combine a visit to the top of Murchison Falls with a walk down by the river, get picked up by the boat, see the hippos elephants and particularly the staggering bird life - then end with a night pat Para Lodge - perfection!
