Murchison falls National Park

Did you Know this? Murchison falls National Park is Uganda’s largest Savannah Park and one of the most visited in Africa. The Park straddles to cover approximately 3,893 square kilometres (1,503 sq mi) Occupying Four districts of Uganda that is Buliisa, Nwoya, Kiryandongo, and Masindi districts.

Murchison falls National Park is bisected by the Victoria Nile river from east to west travelling to cover a distance of about 115 kilometres (71 mi). This forms a high resource for a water catchment area that feeds the game in the savannah.

It’s in Murchison falls National Park that we find the most loved waterfalls, the Murchison falls that is a thriller to an eye sight, gushing its waters through a squeezed narrow gorge only 7 metres (23 ft) wide before plunging 43 metres (141 ft) to feed the game.

Also in the park, adjacent to the Masindi-Gulu Highway, are the Karuma Falls, the location of the 600 megawatt Karuma Power Station, which will be Uganda’s largest power station when it comes online circa 2018
