About Murchison Falls National Park
Murchison Falls National Park at 3840km2 is the largest park in Uganda and is named after the Murchison falls where the mighty river Nile is forced through a narrow gorge of 8m into the ‘Devils 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 4 hours away from Kampala the capital and 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 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.
