Located in north-western Uganda, Murchison Falls is where the mighty Victoria Nile cascades 141 foot through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley Escarpment before feeding into Lake Albert approximately 35km away. Don’t miss the chance to view this spectacle from both the bottom of the waterfall as well as the Top of the Falls viewpoint.
The national park itself is split by the river – the northern sector accounts for approximately 80% of the game viewing despite covering only a third of the 3842km2 area. Wildlife populations have increased hugely in the past few years as conservation efforts have gained momentum resulting in rewarding safari experiences. We suggest staying for three nights to allow time to experience the area by game driving, boating and even hot-air ballooning!
There are regular flights to and from Murchison Falls – or choose a road transfer and from Kampala visit the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary en route for your only chance to see Uganda’s rhino in the wild.
