Murchison Half-Day Falls Tour

Tour Details

Take a half-day trip to the top of the falls on the south bank of the River Nile.  A ranger will guide you around the various stunning view points of the thunderous Murchison Falls and also its sister falls, Uhuru, which was created in 1962 when the river burst its banks. Timing is flexible so why not take along some refreshing drinks in our cool box and a packed breakfast/lunch or sundowners from Red Chilli?!  Enjoy the fresh air and scenery from our specially adapted open air game-drive vehicle.  This trip can also be extended to a full-day to include a game drive on the honeymoon track, which starts just before you reach the falls and from which it’s quite possible to find lion, as well as many other mammal species.  Please note that this excursion involves some hiking and a basic level of fitness is required, as well as sensible shoes.
