Murchison River Lodge

With Murchison Falls National Park, the largest National Park the country has to offer, there is a great depth of wildlife and birdlife populating the surrounding area. You can expect giant Nile crocodiles and hippos rising above the water, the Big 5 and 451 bird species to discover.
