"Uganda varies from 600m to above 5100 m above sea level, this varied altitude allows for a huge variety in habitats, and therefore a huge variety of wildlife."

Murchison Falls Holidays

Murchison Falls National Park contains some of Uganda’s most beautiful landscapes. The park is bisected by the Nile River, which at the falls, contracts to a mere 6 metres. The result is waterfalls of astonishing power and one of Uganda’s most spectacular sights.

A boat trip up the Nile to the base of the falls is a wonderful way of seeing the innumerable hippo, some of the largest Nile crocodiles in Africa, elephant and, with luck, leopard or the much sought-after shoebill. 

The park is an important sanctuary for plains game including hartebeest, Uganda kob, and buffalo, and 20 predator species including lion and spotted hyena. The park’s forests support black-and-white colobus, chimpanzees and olive baboons. Over 450 confirmed bird species include specials such the beautiful Ross’s turaco and brown twinspot.

At the Karuma Falls in the eastern part of the park, the Nile cascades over 23 kilometres of rapids. This spectacular site has some of the most exhilarating white water in Africa.
