Generally speaking, the best time to visit Murchison Falls is between December and February as this is the dry season when it is much easier to spot wildlife. Just keep in mind that the temperatures can be unbearably hot during this time.

As two of the first Europeans to investigate the falls region, Sir Samuel and Florence Baker named the falls after Roderick Murchison, a former president of the Royal Geographical Society.

Under the Idi Amin dictatorship in the 1970s, the falls’ unofficial name was changed to Kabalega Falls in honor of the king of Bunyoro.

When that regime fell, the falls’ name changed to Murchison
