Murchison Falls National Park

Size: 3,840km²

Murchison Falls became one of Uganda’s first national parks in 1952. 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. It is Uganda's largest and oldest conservation area, hosting 76 species of mammals and 451 birds.

About Murchison Falls

Murchison Falls was named by Sir Samuel Baker on his exploration of the river Nile. On reaching the falls, he discovered the rapid falls with specticular view and he named it after the President of the England.

The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile, which plunges 45m over the remnant rift valley wall, creating the dramatic Murchison Falls, the center piece of the park and the final event in an 80km stretch of rapids. The mighty cascade drains the last of the river's energy, transforming it into a broad, placid stream that flows quietly across the rift valley floor into Lake Albert. This stretch of river provides one of Uganda's most remarkable wildlife spectacles.
