Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda's largest park and lies 300km northwest of Kampala (around a 6 hour drive)

Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda's largest park and lies 300km northwest of Kampala (around a 6 hour drive). Here, the world's longest river, the Nile (at this point some 50m wide), winds its way through the park before plunging through the 7m wide cleft at the famous Murchison Falls.

Predominantly wooded savannah, the park is home to many of Africa's best-known plains animals including giraffe, lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, hartebeest among others.  The river is well known for its gigantic crocs which are best viewed from the safety of a launch as they sleep morbidly, with their gaping jaws wide open.  Boat trips from the base of the falls are also great for seeing hippo and the varied birdlife.  Nile perch and tiger-fish provide some excitement for keen anglers.

Murchison is a beautiful park with decent animal and birdlife.  There is not a great range of accommodation here but for those keen on seeing the highlights of Uganda, this should definitely be on the list.

Rumour has it that Catherine Ronan used to be a spy. We find this slightly hard to believe as she loves nothing more than to divulge her travel secrets and infect other people with her enthusiasm.
