Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison Falls National Park

Game drives, boat ride
(6.5 hours from Kampala)

This is the largest Park in Uganda and named after the spectacular, thunderous and powerful Falls. This is the spot where the 50metre wide river Nile (the World’s longest River 4.000kms) squeezes into a 7-meter rocky gap and dropping 43 meters.

Below the falls are good pools for spot fishing and up to 100 Kgs Nile perch has been caught during the past fishing expeditions. The other wildlife in the Park include the huge Nile Crocodiles, Rothschild’s giraffes, and the Jackson’s Hartebeest.

The boat ride to the delta is the best way to look for the rear Shoebill and other shore birds. The game drives in the grassland Savannah on the Northern side of the Park is the best to look for the many species of Mammals and birds the Park offers.
