Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison Falls National Park
Murchison Falls is 300km from Kampala and an estimated drive time of between 5 – 6 hours. Murchison Falls covers over 3,840km2 making it the largest conservation area in Uganda. The park lies at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, where the sweeping Bunyoro escarpment tumbles into vast, palm-dotted savanna grasslands.

Experience Uganda’s wilderness at its very best in Murchison Falls. Set in the western part of Uganda, the park is formed of two contrasting vegetation types, with a lush green tropical forest on the southern end of the river Nile and seas of endless savannah on the other. The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which plunges 45m over the remnant rift valley wall, creating the dramatic powerful Murchison Falls, the centrepiece of the park and the final event in an 80km stretch of rapids.

The park is home to lions, elephants, antelope, olive baboons, buffaloes, patas monkey, oribi, leopards, chimpanzees, hyaenas and water bucks, over 451 bird species and various aquatic mammals like the Nile crocodiles, hippopotamus, residing in the banks of the river Nile.

Enjoy game drives, chimpanzee treks through the forests, nature walks to the top of the falls, and fishing for Nile Perches that weigh up to 100kg. Also enjoy birding with the opportunity to see some of the Albertine endemics and the remarkable shoebill and take a boat ride along the banks of the Nile to the roaring falls.
