Murchison falls national park

Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda's largest national park. It measures approximately 3,840 square kilometers (1,480 sq mi). Together with the adjacent Bugungu Wildlife Reserve and the Karuma Wildlife Reserve, the park is part of the 5,308 square kilometers (2,049 sq mi).The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile from east to west for a distance of about 115 kilometers (71 mi). The park is the location of the famous Murchison Falls, where the waters of the majestic Nile River squeeze through a narrow gorge, only 7 metres (23 ft) wide, before plunging 43 metres (141 ft) below. Also in the park, adjacent to the Masindi-Gulu Highway, are the Karuma Falls, the proposed location of the 700 MW Karuma Power Station, Uganda's largest hydropower station, expected to come online sometime around 2016.

Murchison is Uganda's only National Park which has all "big five". Buffalos, elephants, lions, leopards are best to be seen in the northern part (above the Nile). Rhinos were sadly extinguished but are now being bred again in the rhino sanctuary south of the park; 40 to 50 Rhinos are planned to be released into the wild in approx. 30 years (by 2040). Uganda's largest national park protects a chunk of untamed African savannah bisected by the mighty river Nile

Uganda

About a third of Uganda is covered with rivers, lakes, and swamps, including the famous Lake Victoria and Murchison Falls. The Nile River of Murchison Falls National Park provides a spectacular sight as it forces itself through a narrow gap in the rocks and drops 140 feet in three cascades. In addition to wildlife, the Murchison Falls reserve protects clean water and draws tourists that bring in much needed revenue..
