    Users Assigned: Kazmi  

    Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda's largest national park. It is located around 5 hours from Kampala in the Masindi and Nwoya districts. It is named after the water falls of the same name. Murchison Falls contains a variety of wildlife, including lions, giraffes, hippos, warthog, buffalo and elephants.

    A decent place in Uganda that shows nature at its very best! Lions and elephants wandering amidst the plain area are quite the highlight of this escapade. Other than this, boat trips allow you to explore deltas and waterfall pits where you possibly get to feast your eyes on shoebill storks.

    Towards the park’s south there is an alternative for Kibale Forest that is fit for those who plan on tracking chimpanzees. This substitute destination is known as Budongo Forest.

    But there are two big negatives with this place. Firstly although the attractiveness of the safari areas is being severely compromised by the presence of oil prospecting rigs. Second the flight from Kibale Forest now diverts all the way back to Entebbe before coming back out here.

        • A must visit tourist attractions in Uganda. You will see almost all animals in its habitat. The natural forest, so finding animals sometimes very difficult. But the good thing is the rangers coming with you will the communication with their piers. So if one found some animal immediately they will inform all other rangers and within few minutes all vehicles travel towards that direction. The water falls is really good. You can see the water falls from the top it will give you an amazing look. You can also view it from the river through going by boats. During river ride also you will see many birds and animals. Totally it's worth visiting certainly you will enjoy your visit.
        • Superb place. It would be best to go there for atleast 2 days to enjoy all activities. Do not miss the boat ride, a private hire especially is more fun. Its a lifetime experience. do not miss
        • Wow. One of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen. Amazing views from the top of the falls. Our guide was very knowledgable and patient with the group members who were a little slower than the rest. Definitely bring plenty of water because although the hike is short in distance, there are many stairs and if the sun is out, there is not much shade. Regardless, the trek was well worth the view.
        • It was beautiful! Did a game drive in the morning and the boat ride on the Nile to see the falls. You have to do the hike up to the top of the falls! It was amazing!
        • Game drives, boat cruises on the Nile, chimpanzee tracking, water falls hike and more!! Elephants, giraffe, lions, leopards, hyenas, buffalo etc Murchison Falls is back on track as the consistent conservation efforts of the past decades start to pay off. Words won't do it justice so everyone ought to see for themselves!
