SVAU 005: Murchison Falls Tour

Murchison Falls

Murchison Falls National Park is one of Uganda’s best national parks with a good variety of game and fantastic scenery. This Uganda tour takes you to Kuruma Falls, which are breathtaking. Murchison Falls is by far our most popular tourist destination with viewing the falls as a unique experience.

Located in the North Western Uganda, the park protects a chunk of untamed African savannah bisected by the mighty River Nile. The meandering Victoria Nile and the dramatic Murchison Falls make Murchison Falls National Park a Must-be-visited tourist destination in Uganda. It is from the dramatic Murchison Falls, which are formed from a point where the world’s longest river explodes violently through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment, plunging into a frothing pool 43m below. Some for the African wildlife found in the park are the giraffes, side-striped jackals, several herds of elephants, buffaloes, the beautiful Uganda Kob, warthogs, hartebeests, and lions.

Mostly, tours to Murchison Falls are three day trips however will our new development there will be much more to do and see. We also incorporate Murchison Falls into out longer ten day tours around western Uganda. Apart from game viewing tour, the launch trip to the bottom of the Falls is another memorable adventure giving you the experience of the mighty Biblical Nile.
