The park sits in the Northeastern region of Uganda on the edge of the rift valley, dissected the Victoria Nile on its way to Egypt. Apart from the stunning landscapes, Murchison Falls National Park presents a wealth of savannah wildlife and exciting Uganda safari adventures that range from game drives to Nile River cruises, birding expeditions and authentic cultural encounters.

How to get to Murchison Falls NP
Murchison Falls National Park is one of the most accessible reserves in Uganda, both by road and by air. Public transportation is simple to navigate, although travellers prefer private road trips. Unfortunately, the park does not connect well with other attractions except Kibale Forest in the south and Kidepo Valley in the far northeastern part of Uganda.
By Air: Entebbe to Pakuba Airfield (19 km from the park) by chartered or scheduled small aircraft. Other airfields in Murchison Falls Park include Chobe Airfield to the east, and Bugungu Airfield near Murchison Falls, to the south.
By Road: You can reach the park through the Chobe, Wankwar, Mubako and Tangi gates north of the park via Kampala-Pakwach Road, which crosses the Nile at Karuma Falls Bridge northeastern corner of the park. The park is 260 km/161 mi from Kampala.
If you take the route via Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, approach Paraa from Masindi town, about a 4-hour drive (305km) from Kampala. The main route from Masindi enters the Conservation Area through Kichumbanyobo Gate and passes through Kaniyo Pabidi Forest to Paraa (85km).
