Murchison Falls National Park Itinerary

Lion King of the Savanna on a 2-Day Murchison Falls Park Wildlife Mini-SafariMurchison Falls National Park in Uganda is known for offering an excellent all-around safari experience. The park has made a steady recovery from the difficult times of the 1960s. You can enjoy a variety of activities such as fishing for the Nile Perch, observing elephants, giraffes, baboons, hippos, buffaloes, antelopes, lions, warthogs, hyenas, leopards, and hundreds of species of birds (including migratory birds). If you’re lucky, you might even spot the elusive shoebill. You can also explore the beautiful savannah, hike through the lush forests, and witness the magnificent falls. If you have only two

days to spare, Murchison Falls National Park is the perfect destination for your African Safari adventure.

Sir Samuel Baker named the Falls after Sir Roderick Murchison, who was the president of the Royal Geographical Society. The surrounding Murchison Falls National Park was also named after the falls. Although the falls are commonly known as Murchison Falls, they were once called “Kabarega Falls” during the regime of former Uganda president Idi Amin in the 1970s. However, after his downfall in 1979, the name was reverted to Murchison Falls, although it is still occasionally referred to as Kabarega Falls.
