Top of the Falls Murchison Falls National Park
The Top of the Falls in Murchison Falls National Park is among the rare, stunning and magnificent sights and sounds manifested by River Nile that the park is loved for. Walking to the incredible falls is among the major highlights of the park’s many amazing views.
Walking and standing near the Top of the Falls is an experience that brings conformation and nerve pulses to every visitor that goes to the site. You will see whitecaps of water somersault hypnotically into through the seven-meter gorge, pay attention to the water’s wild roar, taste the mist into your face and feel the rock shake underneath your feet. It’s an absolute bodily overwork! In case you miss the trek to the top of the falls, make a stop off at the park’s north bank when enjoying your game drive and stride down a few steps, a few meters to the water rapids.
This hiking adventure is done usually after the boat cruise on River Nile. After a 2-hour cruise, visitors hike to the falls for an awesome glimpse and photo taking.
Murchison Falls National Park has massive landscapes and diverse scenery of the surrounding Conservation Area can be explored on foot. Paths through Rabongo Forests and Kaniyo Pabidi offer sightings of lots of primates and birds, whereas around the Nile-Lake Albert outlet, four or less hours guided wetland walks offer conceivable sightings of the much loved Shoebill especially during the low water levels. Having done an afternoon boat cruise upriver, you may also trek for 45 minutes via the forest to the Top of Murchison Falls for an entirely different familiarity of this splendid cascade.
Other attractions in Murchison Falls National Park include Budongo Forest Reserve and Bugungu Wildlife Reserve. Other are Rabongo and Kaniyo Pabidi Forests and River Nile that runs through Uganda’s biggest park.
