The Murchinson Falls National Park is one of the most iconic national park in Uganda. Situated in north-western Uganda, the Murchinson Falls National Park spreads from the shores of Lake Albert, around the Victoria Nile, up to the Karuma Falls. Going to the Murchinson Falls National Park will make adventurers watching an impressive and diverse wildlife in the "Pearl of Africa" aka Uganda. It's composed by: elephants, giraffes, hippopotanuses, Ugandan kobs, the shoebill, saddlebill heron, goliath herons, pied kingfishers, malachite kingfishers, baboons, pata monkeys, white-faced whistling ducks, Nile crocodiles and many more.

The Murchinson Falls National Park is Uganda's largest national park. It measures approximately 3,893 km2. The park is bisected by the Victoria Nile from east to west for a distance of about 115 km. The park is the location of the Murchison Falls, where the waters of the Nile flow through a narrow gorge only 7 m wide before plunging 43 m. 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.
