Murchison Falls National Game Park

Murchison Falls National Park Is Uganda’s largest savannah park and one of Uganda’s most Visited parks providing excellent guided safari game drives in Uganda.

A game and wildlife to Murchison falls national game park will lead you to four of Africa’s Big Five animals with only rhinos absent but can be accessed a few Kilometers at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Buffalo and elephants are particularly a common sight on game drives through Murchison fall national game park. The park has a rich population of lions that prey on the abundant Uganda kob.

While on a game and wildlife safari through Murchison Falls, You won’t miss sighting the large herds of the localized Rothschild’s giraffes on any safari game drive in the park. Though far from numerous, introverted leopards are most likely to be spotted around Pakuba.

Murchison Falls National Park is a bit isolated from the popular western circuit at least 200 kilometers from Kibale National Park, the nearest park. So, it’s usually the first or last stop on the best of Uganda safari holidays. Nonetheless, the Murchison Falls route, via Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, is the only one that will assure you an encounter with Africa’s BIG FIVE game.

We recommend you spend at least two or more nights in Murchison and extend your love for the African savannah to the vast wilderness of Kidepo Valley or to the west to Queen Elizabeth, or Bwindi Impenetrable national game Park.
