“Saw lions on an early morning game drive” - Chigo Tours

The best game viewing safari

Views: 772 Visited: Jun 2019 Reviewed: Sep 10, 2019

Murchison Falls National Park is the largest conservation area in Uganda. It covers an area of over 3,840km.

The park derives its name from the famous waterfall, the Murchison Falls on the Victoria Nile. A boat trip to the base of the falls is always the highlight of your tour to this park. On the boat trip expect to see many animals like hippos, crocodiles and elephants by the river bank and of course lots of water birds. The falls make a stunning sight, seeing the Nile squeeze through a narrow gap before dropping down 42 meters below, with a thunderous roar is simply magical. On a day we were there, we saw a rainbow!! Can a place be more beautiful?

Game drives here are also very exciting as animals are easy to spot. Elephants, buffalos and giraffes are very common. Lion sightings here are occasional but they are there. We also spotted the elusive leopard (lucky us!), warthogs and lots of antelopes like Uganda kob, Jackson’s hartebeest and waterbucks. The park is also home to hundreds (451) of birds species like the shoebill, Abyssinian ground hornbill, secretary birds, black bellied bustards, and a lot more.

Murchison Falls National Park offers the best game viewing safari!!
