Driving through Murchison Falls National Park was the most amazing experience! The scenery is beautiful and we saw wild elephants, giraffes, many varieties of birds, deer and other animals. Beautiful place to watch a sunset or sunrise as well. A must see!

The falls are beautiful and plenty of wildlife to see on foot. Giraffes, hippos water buffalo etc, you will be in the company of an armed ranger so no worries.
