The Murchison Falls Conservation Area is made up of Murchison Falls National Park, Karuma Falls Wildlife Reserves, and Bugungu.
As the name suggests, there is plenty of water here. The waters of the Nile River make a splendid home for hippopotamus, crocodiles, waterbucks, and the buffaloes that come to drink. Between the mature woodlands, the lush river forests and the grasslands, the vegetation supports a lot of animals. These animals are birds, chimpanzees, Uganda kobz, elephants, hartebeests, oribis and the carnivores that prey on them.
Famous visitors to Murchinson include Winston Churchill, the Prince of Wales, Humphrey Borgart, Ernst Hemmingway and Queen Mother in 1959.
Murchinsoin is home to Budongo forest which is the biggest Mahogany Forest in East Africa. It also hosts the biggest Chimpanzee colony that you will get anywhere in Uganda. The Karuma falls also offer breathtaking sights for visitors.
