Murchison Falls National Park

An adventure in East Africa calls for a trip to Murchison Falls National Park- a natural wonder found in northwest Uganda. The Falls is not only one of the most visited spots in Uganda but in the entire African continent.

The main attraction in the national park is most definitely the waterfalls, but there is plenty to keep you busy. During your safari, you’ll get the chance to see over 70 African mammal species and 4 out of the iconic “Big Five”, including lions, leopards, elephants, and buffaloes. Murchison is also a great place to partake in bird watching; there are nearly 450 recorded bird species found throughout the park. Chimpanzee trekking is another extremely popular activity.

Best Time to Visit:

The best months to visit Murchison Falls National Park are from December to February since the weather is mild during this time of year. The peak tourist time is from June to September, so be aware that the park will be crowded during these months. There are two low seasons due to heavy rainfall, from March to May and October and November. For those interested in birding, the rainy (low) season may be the best time to go.
