Murchison Falls National Park at a Glance!
Plan, Discover and Explore the Hidden Treasures of Murchison Falls National Park
Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s oldest national park and famous for the Big Five Game. Murchison lies just at the shores of Lake Albert, in northwest Uganda where the sweeping Bunyoro escarpment tumbles into vast, palm-dotted savanna. First gazetted as a game reserve in 1926, it is Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area, hosting 76 species of mammals and 451 birds.
Murchison Falls National park is also known for the Murchison Falls, where the Victoria Nile River surges through a narrow gap over a massive drop creating the dramatic and centerpiece experience of the park and the final event in an 80km stretch of rapid falls. 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.
The Park boasts of an enormous wildlife game which includes the elephants and hippos, and there are chimpanzees in the Kaniyo Pabidi mahogany forest not forgetting the big five. Notable visitors who have visited this park in the past include Sir Winston Churchill (who named Uganda “The pearl of Africa”), Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, and several British royals
