If your vacation period is nearing, you might be interested in visiting the Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda, Africa. You can perfectly hope for a relaxing experience in this part of the vast forestry of Africa. The whole park is halved with the Victoria Nile River, running for the first 40 meters in a bulleting speed and then ending into the grand Murchison Falls, the central attraction of this park. Aligned on both sides of the river is a thick group of trees and other shrubs and plants.

Of course, a National Park wouldn’t be complete without the varying animals living in its sheltering arms. Included among the animals living in this vast wet land are 450 species of birds and 76 kinds of mammals, such as elephants, giraffes, hippopotamuses, warthog and the Uganda kobo. Also, the river hosts the largest number of wild crocodiles and other reptile species, making this forest a good source of curiosity and interest. The good part here is you can actually see these animals roam around the forest.

Also, if you visit the Murchison Falls National Park, you can be on the same list of personalities who have also enjoyed the company of the Uganda animals. The members include Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, and Ernest Hemmingway. Movies requiring forest backgrounds have also been filmed here, like the famous African Queen.
