Murchison Falls National Park

Size: 3,840km2

Murchison Falls ended up one of Uganda’s first national stops in 1952

At Murchison Falls, the Nile presses through an 8m wide canyon and dives with a loud thunder into the “Fiend’s Cauldron”, making a trademark rainbow

The northern segment of the recreation centre contains savanna and Borassus palms, acacia trees and riverine forest. The south is commanded by forest and woods patches

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

Murchison Falls National Park lies at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, where the broad Bunyoro slope tumbles into immense, palm-spotted savanna. First gazetted as a diversion save in 1926, it is Uganda’s biggest and most established preservation territory, facilitating 76 types of well-evolved creatures and 451 winged animals.

The recreation centre is cut up by the Victoria Nile, which dives 45m over the remainder fracture valley divider, making the emotional Murchison Falls, the focal point of the recreation centre and the last occasion in an 80km stretch of rapids. The compelling course depletes the remainder of the waterway’s vitality, changing it into an expansive, tranquil stream that streams unobtrusively over the break valley floor into Lake Albert. This stretch of stream gives one of Uganda’s most exceptional untamed life scenes. Normal guests to the riverbanks incorporate elephants, giraffes and bison; while hippos, Nile crocodiles and amphibian winged animals are changeless occupants.

Striking guests to the recreation centre incorporate Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway and a few British royals.
