Went on the boat to see falls. Its a great experience. There is a guide and you can buy few cold drinks if needed. The boat does not come very close to the falls.

Murchison was definitely on our list when we planned our trip to Uganda. The country itself is so green and beautiful that, I think, it is one of those highly under rated places on the planet. The pitfall being, we have to pay for every...More

Hi, we're planning on visiting in September as budget travellers with our own vehicle. I think Red Chilli looks the best option for budget accommodation, but how would we go about organising passes and joining a safari/hike/boat trip? Any options for the financially challenged? Thanks in advance for any assistance!
