Tourist, travellers and professional photographers agree; this place is quite easily the most striking place and hugely popular in Uganda. Perhaps the largest of all national parks, Murchison Falls National Park is endowed with the mighty River Nile that cuts through it with breath taking scenes.

The Nile plunges through a narrow gorge at high speed forming magnificent waterfalls (the Murchison falls) about 45m high before converting into an easy-flowing river whose banks are thronged with crocodiles, hippos, water bucks and buffaloes. The vegetation is the savannah, purely untouched river line forest and woodlands. Believe you, me, the scenery here is unrivalled.

The park has got such a collection of wildlife; you will catch a glimpse of elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, chimpanzees and many bird species including the rare shoebill.

To get the most out of your visit to this park, you will need some bit of inside knowledge;
