3 days Murchison Falls National Park

Murchison Falls National Park is Ugandan’s largest national park, 3,840 square kilometers (1,480 square miles) and famous for the flow of the Victoria Nile River through a narrow gorge only 7 meters (23 feet) wide creating a spectacular and powerful rush of white water 43 meters (141 feet) over the falls. The Victoria Nile flows east to west for 115 kilometers (71 miles); no wonder the park is home to the largest number of crocodiles in Uganda. Abundant species of wildlife and birds populate the park; and a very special sighting is the rare shoe-billed stork.
