MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK

Uganda's largest National Park

Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest National Park with the Nile River flowing through the middle of the park and the Murchison Falls being its major attraction.

Ranging from dense rainforest to undulating savannah ensures incredible diversity and the prime game-viewing area is the peninsula between the Victoria and the Albert Niles, known as the Buligi Circuit. The forests are home to numerous primates, including Chimpanzees, and near the river you will see buffalo, elephants and Rothschild-Giraffes.

Best time to travel to Murchison Falls National Park

The best time to visit Murchison Falls National Park is during the dry seasons from December to late February and from June to September. This is the time the animals congregate around water, making them easier to observe.

Wildlife

There are plenty of animals to be found here, including the Rothchild’s giraffe. 4 of the Big 5 are present (no rhino) as well as different species of antelope such as kob, oribi, hartebeest, bushbuck and duiker.
