Situated in the North west of Uganda , it is our biggest National Park bisected by the mighty River Nile. Visit to the top of the falls, game drives to view giraffes, elephants, lions, and buffaloes, a magical launch cruise on the Nile are but a few of the activities you can do. For the ardent anglers, catching an 80kg Nile Perch is the norm rather than the exception.
Murchison Falls National Park is situated 305km from Kampala in the west of Uganda. It is about 4.5 hours from Kampala.
The Park comprises of itself, Bugungu and Karuma Wildlife reserves. This is where the Nile explodes through a narrow gorge and cascades down to become a placid river whose banks are thronged with hippos and crocodiles, waterbucks and buffaloes. The vegetation is characterized by savannah, riverside forest and woodland. Wildlife includes lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, hartebeests, oribis, Uganda kobs, Chimpanzees, and many bird species including the rare shoebill stork.
