Murchison Falls

At Murchison Falls, the Nile squeezes through an 8-meter-wide valley before thunderously roaring into the "Devil's Cauldron," where it forms a recognizable rainbow. Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, and a number of British royals were notable park visitors.

A waterfall experience worth trying.

The stunning Murchison Falls, the park’s focal point and the last of an 80-kilometer length of rapids, are created when the Victoria Nile, which cuts through the park, plunges 45 meters over the last wall of the rift valley. The river is reduced to a broad, tranquil stream that silently glides across the rift valley floor into Lake Albert after the powerful cascade expels the last of its force. One of Uganda’s most amazing animal displays may be found along this section of the river. Elephants, giraffes, and buffalo are frequent visitors to the riverbanks, while hippos, Nile crocodiles, and aquatic birds live there permanently.

It is noteworthy that Murchison Falls is home to approximately 144 mammals, 556 bird species, 51 reptiles, and 51 amphibians. The park is stunning all year round thanks to its large population of African elephants. Aerial survey found 1,330 people and an increase of almost 900 people.
