Thunderous, explosive and completely spectacular, Murchison Falls is the world’s most powerful waterfall. Formed as the mighty Nile squeezes through a seven-metre gap in the Albertine Rift Escarpment, the body of roaring water is mind-blowing from all angles. Take a boat to the base and watch the water crashing down as animals drink, apparently nonplussed on the banks, or hike to the top for the angel’s view. The park itself is Uganda’s oldest and largest conservation area and leopard, lion, buffalo and elephant can all be found as well as the elusive shoebill.
