About Murchison Falls National Park – “The World’s Strongest Waterfalls”

Murchison Falls National Park is the largest park in Uganda covering an area of 3840km2 and is named after the Murchison falls where the mighty river Nile is forced through a narrow gorge of 8m into the ‘Devil’s Cauldron’ creating an ever-present rainbow. Samuel Baker the explorer considered the Murchison falls as “the most important object of the entire course of the river” named the waterfall in 1864.

The park is only 5 hours’ drive from Kampala the capital of Uganda and with all the attractions is a perfect safari destination for exciting Uganda safari tours. The habitats range from the forest, savanna, riverine woodland, Borassus palms, and several acacia trees. It lies in the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley giving 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 the opportunity to view the Murchison falls from both up as the Nile squeezes through the gorge and from below while on the boat safari on Victoria Nile. The launch trip (boat cruise) on Victoria Nile gives you an opportunity to experience the Nile like the actors of the 1951 film “The African Queen.”
