Murchison Falls
Protected Area covers a range of over 4500 km². The wandering herds of elephants and towering Borassus Palms make it a stunning landscape.
Visit the Top of Murchison Falls where the Nile is forced through a narrow gap in the rock before plunging 43 metres below. The steep but short walk to the bottom of the Falls is highly recommended.
No visit to Murchison is complete without the (three hour) boat trip to the bottom of the Falls, where you will see huge Nile crocodiles, hippos and 100s of birds, including brightly-coloured Bee-eaters, Spoonbills and, occasionally, the rare Shoebill.
