These waterfalls are a 'must see'. The power and force of them is indescribable, words like awesome simply don't dothem justice.. If you stand at the viewing platform high ABOVE the falls you feel as though you are having a hot shower!

A trip with wild Trekkers safaris never goes wrong. Affordable prices and best experience whilst in Uganda.

Questions & Answers
Having just returned home from Murchision Falls and the full on Safari staying outside the park, I am still suffering from an infestation of Teetse Flies in and outside of the park on the road to the Falls is worst..with flies filling our Safari Van and biting us through our clothes, and socks..I do react to bug bites but this was crazy bad, huge swellings and pain and itching for days..the biggest was a leg blown up to twice its size and pus coming out of the injection hole..antibiotics needed and had to cancel the game drives for fear of more bites that could be quite serious..Did anyone else have this serious problem ..sadly our driver did not alert us to not wear blue or black and also to close the windows as we entered Teetse Country. Why when he could have helped protect us did he hold back even when we were bitten no recommendatons for further protection. Very disappointed in this expensive mistake as all costs were already paid..

I don't know the exact size but its the biggest national park in Uganda. you can't access it by train but by road and chartered flights to pakuba air strip. let me know if you need any help including planning tour for you.
