Murhiston Falls is one of Uganda’s first national parks established in the latter half of the 20th century. The park lays in the northern part of the Albertine Rift Valley which hosted the set of Humphrey Bogart’s famous film; “African Queen”.
Here, one of the world’s longest rivers – the Nile – gushes through a six metre-wide gap through the Rift Valley escarpment and over 40 metres in height to form the Murchison Falls.
Mobile camping on the Nile river delta banks upstream of Lake Albert is something truly magnificent. Coupled with fishing for Nile Perch – one of the largest fresh water game fish in the world with records of over 100 kilograms having been caught.
Mobile camping within the thundering Murchison Falls National Park is a brilliant experience where boating and fishing are at hand daily. The experience of an encounter with our closest relatives, the Chimpanzees and the endangered Mountain Gorillas are what really make Uganda worthy of a visit in my opinion.
