Murchison Falls National Park

On the shore of Lake Albert, Murchison Falls National Park is part of the larger Murchison Falls Conservation Area, which includes two neighbouring wildlife reserves. The region is phenomenal for birding, hiking, and game drives.

Why Murchison Falls?
As the Victoria Nile snakes through the landscape, it arrives at a narrow section of rock through which it bursts and falls 43 metres into the gorge below. This is Murchison Falls – equally compelling when viewed from above or below. Make a day of the falls with a boat ride from Lake Albert, or spend time hiking through the savannah grasslands while looking out for birds. There are 451 bird species in Murchison Falls National Park and birding is great year-round, but is especially exciting during the dry season months of January through March.

Classic plains game can be found here, too. A Murchison Falls safari yields exciting glimpses of buffalo, Jackson hartebeest, giraffe, hyena, warthog, lion and much more. Uganda is an underrated safari destination, which only means your experience will be exclusive and filled with unexpected surprises.
  • Beautiful wetland landscapes including forest and savannah.
  • Hundreds of species of birds all year round.
  • Boating from Lake Albert to Murchison Falls.
  • Hiking trails aplenty.
  • Vehicle safari in the national park and wider conservation area.
