Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest conservation area, it covers an area of over 3840sq.km, covered by Borassus palms, Acacia trees, Savanna and Riverine woodland on the northern bank with the southern sector dominated by woodland and forest patches. It is a prime game destination with variety of wildlife especially mammals viewed on safari drives through the northern game circuits and on launch cruises along the majestic Nile. The park is famously known for its dramatic falls where the Nile River squeezes into a 7metre gorge and finally falling off 40meters below the Devil’s Cauldron; this is the highlight of the park.
