Life is indeed an adventure. That’s the feel that Murchison falls gives. Literally on the edge and loving it. First gazetted as a game reserve in 1926. Uganda’s largest and oldest conservation area covers 3,842km and hosts 451 birds and 76 species of mammals which include elephants, giraffes and buffaloes; while hippos, Nile crocodiles and aquatic birds are permanent residents on the banks as the park is bisected by the Victoria Nile. Squeezing through an 8m wide gorge, it plunges with a thunderous roar. The dramatic falls are really something to look at. The northern section of the park presents savannah and borassus palms, Acacia trees and riverine woodland. No wonder the film African Queen Starring Humphrey Bogart was filmed here in 1951. The real adventure venue, centred in the Western part of Uganda, Masindi. No doubt this is a place every one ought to see.
