Getting to Murchison Falls National Park

12 reviews

Getting to Murchison Falls from Entebbe or Kampala

If you are landing at Uganda's international airport in Entebbe and looking to drive to Murchison Falls, you are looking at about five hours of driving time under normal conditions. Those who do opt to drive often combine a the trip with a visit to the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, which is about an hour outside of the park. 

For those on a tighter time budget, there are direct flights to Pakuba (Murchison Falls) from Entebbe that currently fly three times per week. A more expensive option is to do a charter flight, which allows you to fly any day you wish, but is also more expensive.
