Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison falls from below

The Murchison Waterfall forms part of the River Nile which winds its way through the African continent all the way north to Egypt. It forms part of the National Park which is the largest conservation area in Uganda. Within the park dozens of species vie for supremacy, with big cats such as leopards and lions chasing even bigger game. Giraffe and elephant can be seen on the banks of the river where the Bunyuro plateau’s thick woodland reaches a steep escarpment, before dropping away 40 metres to the Albertine rift valley below. This is the Nile’s highest waterfall and allows for astounding views of Lake Albert and the savannah and bush which surround it.

Set out for a morning game drive and witness the hippos and crocodiles in the river, then explore the environment and the cultural sites which trace the culture and history of the ancient Bunyuro kingdom. North of the capital Kampala, this stunning National Park does not garner the same attention as those in the South West so prepare to have all the space and peace that you could ever need in one of the most picturesque locations on earth.
