Rather than making the usual journey south-west of Entebbe, head
north-west to the fertile lands of Murchison National Park. Here
you'll find stunning vistas and lush bushland as far as the eye can
A highlight of any trip to Murchison is undeniably the falls
themselves. The narrow seven metre wide canyon sees the mighty Nile
cascade thunderously into the gorge 40 metres below - forming what
is the world's most powerful waterfall. When the waters calm
further downstream, enjoy a boat safari and spot birds and hippos
flocking to the river banks.
A favourite hangout of Winston Churchill and Agatha Christie,
the park has a long history of delighting visitors with its vast
beauty and varied wildlife. With healthy populations of Ugandan
kob, elephant, giraffe, lion and more, game drives here are some of
the best in Uganda.
