The park’s name comes from the mighty Murchison Falls, which are formed when the Victoria Nile powerfully forces its way through a narrow cleft before plunging 43 meters below with a thunderous roar. While visiting the most visited destination, you will be able to see wildlife such as elephants, lions, and buffaloes, among other species.

The 766-square-kilometre park is mostly made up of evergreen rain forest, with elevations ranging from 1100 to 1600 meters.

The chances of seeing these lions are about 70%, though they can be difficult to spot at times (especially when they’re hunting for prey in the grassland). I hope you get a chance to see them; the sight will be breathtaking!

The length of time it takes and the terrain vary depending on the movements of these massive primates. Once you’ve found a gorilla family, you’ll have an hour to spend with them. Spending time with these gentle and endangered giants is an amazing, exciting experience that should be savoured for a long time. Get back to your lodging. After lunch, check out and make your way to Lake Bunyonyi by taxi.With its 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water, Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush green terraced hills that reach a height of (2,200 -2,478) that make it magical and you could admire them all day.
