MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK is the best and biggest national park in Uganda which was named after the head of the Royal Geographical Society Sir Murchison. The Nile flows through the park on its way to Egypt and the Murchison falls used to be one of Africa's best national park during the late 1960s. This park, also used to contain some of largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa including as many as 15,000 elephants, herds of rhinos, lions, giraffes, Ugandan kobs, cape buffalo, hippos and crocodiles.

On the north bank of Victoria Nile in the area between Paraa and Lake Albert is the area popular with wildlife driving and walking safaris. Some game viewing also takes place on the southern banks of the river Nile. The beautiful walking trails link the base of the falls with the top and offers some of the different scenic points of the Magnificent Murchison Falls. Trips to the Falls are also possible by falt bottomed boat cruises that dock a couple of metres from the raging Cascades.

The falls were once described as the most spectacular thing that happened to the Nile along its 6700km course. Activities at Murchison Falls LAUNCH TRIP The Boat cruise that seats about 40+ people starts from the Paraa and sails all the way towards the base of the falls. The boat operates daily departing at around 9am and 2pm.

The Safari on this River takes approximately three hours. Afternoon trips are more popular as the thirsty wildlife come to the edge of the River, while the predators also utilize this time for hunts at the Water Hole. It may also be possible to disembark from the Launch to take a walk on the trail trail along the edge of the Falls all the way to the top of the falls to be picked up by car an hour later.
