Murchison Falls National Park
Murchison Falls National Park sits on the shore of Lake Albert, in northwest Uganda.
It’s known for Murchison Falls, where the Victoria Nile River surges through a narrow gap over a massive drop. Park wildlife includes elephants and hippos, and there are chimpanzees in the Kaniyo Pabidi Mahogany Forest. The Lake Albert Delta is home to rare shoebill storks. There are game fish in the cascades of Karuma Falls.
This park offers a diverse selection of activities to visitors. Most popular, is the return boat trip that follows the Nile from Paraa to the base of Murchison Falls. This is closely followed in, by a morning game drive on the Buligi Circuit, chimpanzee tracking or forest birding at Kaniyo Pabidi, the spectacular Top of the Falls viewpoint and associated Honeymoon Track on the south side of the river.
