Enjoy boat rides, game drives to see four of the big five, nature walks, sport fishing, birding, chimpanzee trekking, in Murchison falls national park, the oldest and largest national park in Uganda.

 

Murchison Falls National Park lies at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, where the sweeping Bunyoro escarpment tumbles into vast, palm-dotted savanna. It is Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area, hosting 76 species of mammals and 451 birds.

Murchison Falls National Park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which plunges 45m over the remnant 8 meter wide rift valley wall, creating the dramatic Murchison Falls, the centerpiece of the park and the final event in an 80km stretch of rapids. The mighty cascade drains the last of the river's energy, transforming it into a broad, placid stream that flows quietly across the rift valley floor into Lake Albert. This stretch of river provides one of Uganda's most remarkable wildlife spectacles. Regular visitors to the Nile riverbanks include elephants, giraffes and buffaloes; while hippos, Nile crocodiles and aquatic birds are permanent residents.
