Getting to Murchison Falls from Kampala

By Road


From Kampala, it takes approximately 4-6 hours (305 km) to drive to Murchison Falls National Park headquarters at Paraa (85km from Masidi). 

Inspire African Safaris offers different tour packages such as Gorilla & Chimpanzee Tracking, nature walk etc

The most direct route to Murchison National Park from Kampala is through the southern gates (Kichumbanyobo and Masindi South Gate).: BBC

Alternatively, the northern gates (Purongo or Takigate-Packwach) are also a great option, although longer in distance, they take you straight to the most interesting sections of the park. 

It is possible to fly to the park by chartered aircraft or the daily scheduled flight from Kajjansi Airfield near Kampala.

The flight is just under one hour.

The most convenient airfield to arrive at is Pakuba because of its proximity to the park headquarters and the main accommodations.

Alternatively, you can fly to Chobe or Bugundu.
