Murchison Falls National Park

A+ R A-

Uganda’s largest National Park, at 3840km, Murchison Falls contains many spectacular features, none more than the Victoria Nile that bisects the park east to west, and the spectacular falls along the river that give the park its name.


” The 1951 film “The African Queen” starring Humphrey Bogart was filmed on Lake Albert and the Nile in Murchison Falls National Park “


Highlights of a visit to the park include a launch trip to the bottom of the falls, along the river Nile during which large numbers of hippo and crocodile can be seen as well as elephant, giraffe, buffalo and the other “big game” coming down to drink. Views from the top of the falls are also spectacular and a visit there is “a must” giving the opportunity to get soaked by the spray, or merely witness the rapids leading to the falls and the spectacular scenery beyond them.

During game drives there is the opportunity to view elephant, giraffe, buffalo, a profusion of antelope and for those who are lucky, can see leopard or spotted hyena which represent the parks carnivores. For bird watchers the varying habitant, Particularly around the river and Lake Albert in the west, makes for excellent viewing, with amongst others the opportunity to see the rare shoebill.

The park has had various development projects including improvements in roads, accommodation and infrastructure in general. The park’s airstrip makes it a convenient destination for flying safari.
