What our visitors say about our Murchison Lodge:
”We had a great stay at this lodge. Staff was doing the best stay for us. Second day they fixed dinner outside in the dark with fire. They also made fish that evening as we wanted. Thank you so much. Had my best experience when elefant walked outside our cottage so near.”
“Comfortable rustic lodging with excellent food: I spent two nights here on a tour of Murchison Falls NP organised by Journeys Uganda. The accommodation was spaceous, clean and very comfortable. The excellent hot water shower after long days in the park was most welcome. The three course evening meals and packed lunches provided were filling and tasty and they even had a reliable wifi connection to the outside world in the restaurant (not rooms).
My only regret was not being able to spend some more time relaxing and enjoying the spectacular view over the papyrus swamp from the verandah due to the full schedule of game and birding safaris in the park. Highly recommended for those who want to have a more genuine experience of the country than provided in the starred tourist resorts.”
“Wonderful lodge right on the Albert Nile: We stayed at the Hornbill Bush lodge for a weekend whilst visiting Murchison. The staff here could not have been nicer. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and functional. The food is also very good quality. They even packed us a nice lunch for our safari. The location is great….right on the edge of the Albert Nile wetland..great for a sundowner. If you are after good quality at a fair price….you can’t do much better. We will be back.”
Murchison Falls National Park is the largest National Park in Uganda and it is the Giraffe paradise of Uganda. The park gets its name after the Murchison Falls that are within it. Here the Nile is pushed through a 7 m gap down a 43 m fall. A visit to the top of the falls is an impressive experience, where you hear, see and feel the power of the water.
The top activity in Murchison Falls National Park is game-drives on the savannah to search for lion, leopard, hyenas, giraffes, elephants and more. While driving along the game-drive tracks you are also likely to see interesting animals like the Abessinian Ground Hornbill. Another highlight to a visit in Murchison Falls National Park is the boat-cruise on the mighty river Nile all the way up to the bottom of the falls. During the boat-cruise you can expect to see hippos, crocodiles and buffaloes enjoying the water. As mentioned above it is well worth a visit to go to the top of the falls to experience the power of the water.
Hornbill Bush Lodge is located just a 5 min drive from Tangi gate to Murchison Falls NP, so the perfect Murchison accommodation option for exploring the park.

SAFARIS with Murchison Falls National Park
We are happy to arrange for your activates in Murchison Falls NP. Buy a full safari package or hire a car for game-drives. Murchison Falls National Park is a popular destination for short safaris in Uganda as it offers you great game-viewing opportunities. It is possible to do a 2-day safari to Murchison Falls National Park from Kampala, but to get the most out of your journey we would recommend a 3-days safari. If you include a stop at Ziwa rhino sanctuary along the way you get the chance to tick off all the “Big 5” (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino).
Murchison Falls National Park also fits well in to itineraries for longer safaris in Uganda. An itinerary outline can have it at the start of a safari heading southwards, to start off with some great wildlife viewing moments. For the ones wishing to journey to farthest north and see Kidepo it offers a nice break to the journey with interesting activities.
