About Murchison Falls National Park
Murchison Falls National Park covers an area of 3840 km2. This is is the largest of Uganda National Parks. It is named after the Murchison falls falls.
At the falls the mighty river Nile is forced through a narrow gorge of 8 m. It then drops down into the ‘Devils Cauldron’ creating an ever-present rainbow.
This is what Samuel Baker the explorer said about the Murchison falls:
“the most important object of the entire course of the river”
He named the waterfall in 1864 after the then char of the Royal Wildlife Society.
The park is only 5 hours away from Kampala the capital. With all the attractions is a destination for a weekend gate-away. The habitats range from forest, savanna, riverine woodland, borassus palms, and several acacia trees.
Murchison Falls National Park lies in the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley. This gives it great views of the plains and forested areas and the Victoria Nile that pours into Lake Albert. The Albert Nile Corridor is Uganda’s lowest area at 612m at the Delta.
You have opportunity to view the falls from both up as the Nile squeezes through the gorge. Also, from below while on the boat safari on Victoria Nile.
