overview

Murchison Falls National Park is one of the most spectacular conservation areas in Uganda, located in the northern part of the country. The park covers an area of 3,840 square kilometers and is named after the Murchison Falls, which is the most powerful waterfall on the Nile River.

The park is home to a wide range of wildlife, including elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, hippos, and crocodiles. The park is also home to several primate species, including chimpanzees, baboons, and colobus monkeys. The park is a birdwatcher's paradise, with over 450 bird species recorded, including the rare shoebill stork.

One of the most popular activities in Murchison Falls National Park is the boat cruise on the Nile River, which offers visitors the chance to see a wide range of wildlife along the riverbanks. The highlight of the cruise is the Murchison Falls, where the Nile River is forced through a narrow gorge before plunging over 40 meters to the rocks below, creating a spectacular display of mist and spray.

Visitors to Murchison Falls National Park can also take part in game drives, guided nature walks, and chimpanzee trekking expeditions. The park has several well-maintained trails that offer visitors the chance to explore the park's diverse landscapes, including savannas, forests, and wetlands.
