Murchison falls national park
Murchison Falls National Park
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. 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 became one of Uganda’s first national parks in 1952
This park is home to the famous Murchison falls long recognized as the most powerful water falls in the world where the rushing waters of the Nile squeezes through an 8m wide gorge and plunges with a thunderous roar into the “Devil’s Cauldron”, creating a trademark rainbow. The 1951 film “The African Queen” starring Humphrey Bogart was filmed on Lake Albert and the Nile in Murchison Falls National Park.
Here Visitors can enjoy several activities.
-Launch cruise to the bottom of the Falls
-Chimp tracking in Budongo Forest
