Murchison Falls National Park”Buffalo, Elephant and Giraffe among others can be spotted here”

urlAt 3840sq km, Murchison National park is comparable is size to Kenya’s Maasai Mara game Reserve and is Uganda’s Largest National Park.
The river Nile runs through it dividing it into 2, one half being dense forest and the other plains and Savannah. The forest is occupied by yet again, primates. Such include the Chimpanzee and other monkeys as well.
One can take boat trips up and down the river to catch site of the many Hippos that laze along the river banks. The boat trip was a highlight of this park when tourism in Uganda was at its peak in the 60s and 70s.
Buffalo, Elephant and Giraffe among others can be spotted here. The main attraction is the birds in the park. From the tiny little malachite Kingfisher to the Fish Eagle, Muchison is rich in bird life.
The Saddle Billed Stork and the Whale Headed stork which is found virtually nowhere else in East Africa can be sighted here. Visitors to the park are slowly trickling back in and once word gets around, the boats will again be busy with curious tourists just like in the 60s.
