Murchison Falls is guaranteed to offer everything you could ask for from a safari destination. It is mostly free of crowds and wildlife spotting is fantastic. We were working at mapping the national park for MAPA project so were also able to explore the remote north-eastern bank of the Nile. I will never forget uploading data at night to the satellite server on our Defender while photographer Eric Nathan sat on the roof watching for signs of trouble from the very feisty and nervous buffalo herd we could hear snorting all around us. GoExpat provided us with the best trips to murchion . I highly recomend them

Murchison Falls National Park – where the Nile tumbles down the Rift Valley escarpment

Solo Traveller

Although the wildlife viewing is excellent in this park, it is the scenery that really gets to me: the rolling grassy hills studded with borassus palms teeming with plains animals, the paparus swamps home to the sought after shoebill stork and forests inhabited by chimpanzees. But, the main feature in the park is the Victoria Nile. A highlight to any visit is a boat trip up the Nile to one of the most spectacular sights of water pushing through a cleft in the escarpment: Murchison Falls. Gliding on this mighty river is an unforgettable experience: hippos snorting everywhere, elephants playing in the water and lots of water birds along the shore. The afternoon boat trip is great for spotting animals coming to drink. Once we even spotted a leopard from the boat. The main antelope in the park is the Uganda kob and big herds of them inhabit the grassy plains north of the river. If you watch these antelopes carefully, you won’t have any problems spotting lions. The kob’s alarm signal, a high-pitched whistle is unmissable. Then it’s just a matter of following their gaze.
