Amazing, there were plenty of big five animals. There were lots of lions, elephants and giraffes. Really beautiful savanna grasslands and plenty of different range lodges for accommodation and to dine.

Fantastic National Park which might change considerably once TOTAL starts with its oil drillings in 2018.

The falls were amazing and I recommend the boat safari and hike. Driving safaris had limited animal sightings, but beautiful scenery.

The safari was well coordinated from the time we made the booking, leaving Kampala to the time we came back.

The detailed planning which was done by Adventure Expeditions Uganda to ensure we maximized our game drives was very impressive.

Jeff (our Tour guide) was on time and very polite. He made us feel comfortable during the safari tour, and his known of the wildlife – both the animal and bird species was brilliant. He did everything possible to ensure we get to see the different animals upclose but still within the UWA rules and he knew which routes to take at the different times to find the animals we desired to see.

The safari lived up to expectations and will sure plan another one with Adventure Expeditions Uganda.

Its one of the top national parks of Uganda and its always a pleasure to go there!

Murchison National Park is my favourite national park in Uganda. I have been there at least five time in the last 10 years. There are many hotels in the area. We like to stay at the one inside the park across the river. The boat ride to the falls is a unique feature of this park. As you go up the river Nile gently chugging along in a private boat or a public one you can see a lot of wild life on your right. From Elephants coming up for a drink to Nile crocodiles and hippos spread out in the swamp and the waters. You can see a wide range of animals indigenous to this park. Occasionally you will come across a crocodile sunning itself quite close to you with a gaping mouth. Multitudes of Hippos frolicking around you, ducking into the water as your boat draws close. Little ones staying close to their mothers. Bush bucks, antelopes warthogs can be seen foraging in the bushes. Uganda is one of the richest bird watching destinations of Africa with over a thousand species recorded and also home to the rare Shoe bill stork.
Along the river you will see various water birds as well land. The ranger accompanying you will help identify many species as you make your way towards the falls. As you reach closer you are rewarded by the sight of a gushing fall and you can stop to take photos.
When you return to your hotel you can enjoy a peaceful sunset and sometimes you can hear the elephants and Hippos close by. The early morning game drives are breathtaking, beautiful sunrise Lions with their kill, Giraffes, many species of antelopes and many other animals can be seen. The knowledgeable ranger will guide you to the right places.
The weather is perfect, and the Ugandan staff are very polite and friendly. Murchison falls National park is not to be missed.

An undescribable, awesome experience.
The most beautiful scenery, changing in color en details each moment the sun shines (or even not shines)
Not enough eyes to see all the wildlife on the borders, in the bush, in the sky...
Very friendly and professional guides.
The total experience was 1 big highlight!!!
Recommend it to all!!!

Impressive!

The falls were incredibly impressive. Quite a sight! We enjoyed the wildlife both on safari and on the boat ride beneath the falls - though I was told that there were a lot fewer animals to see than in other visits by people who'd been more than once. It may be luck-of-the-draw because I had a friend visit the week before I did and saw 11 lions close up right after a kill and we only saw a few lions far away with binoculars. The nature of nature! :-)
