Uganda : Murchison Falls

Murchison Falls National Park is the largest park in Uganda. It has beautiful scenery from the dense rainforest on the hilly ranges in the south-west to the undulating savannah of the north. The Nile River splits the park, and forcing itself through a 7 metre gap, creates the incredible 40 metre Murchison Falls, one of the most dramatic sights in Uganda. The park's forest is home to many primate species, including chimpanzees, and the open river areas attract plains game including antelopes, buffalos, Rothschild giraffes and elephants.

A highlight of any safari here is a boat-trip on the Nile, where you'll see hippos in their hundreds and crocodiles basking in the sunshine. The main focus, however, is the birds which include the tiny Malachite Kingfisher, Carmine Bee-Eater, African Fish Eagle, Saddlebill Stork and the rare Shoebill Stork.
