Murchison Falls National Park

Uganda’s largest national park nearly 4000 square meters takes its name from a narrow descending gap along River Nile. This where the river thunders out to drop nearly 50m, making it the strongest waterfall in Africa and dividing the park in half on its way to the Mediterranean Sea

The sound it makes is deafening with endless sprays of water sting at the face even as your head gets pounded with the rhythm. It is easy to become emotional at the falls as the spectacle of glorious tribute to the forces of nature or perhaps Kabelaga’s anger against the British colonialists.

Murchison Falls Wildlife

Arguably one of the best and exciting destinations in East Africa, Murchison Falls gives the visitor an opportunity to engage in a number of activities including wildlife viewing, boat safaris and many more.

Birding in Murchison

Wildlife viewing

Searching for the big five, it is at Murchison that you are assured of meeting a lot of wildlife in their natural habitat including the African Buffalo as one of the most social animals of the plain, the giant African Elephants and the tall giraffes, the exorbitant hippopotamus, the cheerful antelopes, kobs, impalas, waterbucks and the mighty lions.
Most visitors will secretly wish to see lions hunting but it is a very rare privilege since lions like to laze about during the day and prefer hunting at night and very early in the morning. Visitors can also watch butterflies emerge from their chrysalises, dry their wings and prepare for their very first flight. Enjoy a game drive, birding and primates’ view along Budongo Forest.

Boat Safaris

Enjoy a boat ride to the bottom of the falls and this has rendered these boat safaris an essential on safari to Murchison Falls National Park to view the Mighty Murchison Falls. This is a wonderful way to see hippos, buffaloes and crocodiles at their ease along the banks of the River Nile.
