Murchison falls is a home to different wildlife species; over 76 mammals and 451 bird species including the Buffaloes, Jackson hartebeests, Antelopes, Lions, Kobs, Giraffes, Hyenas, Bushbucks, and Warthogs among others. This makes the park’s landscape so amazing for game viewing/game driving.
Murchison Falls National Park covers an area of 3,840sq km, and country’s oldest and largest national park and hence you are certain to spot and catch some great photos of the legendary big four, leaving out the Rhinos that got extinct by 1983; good news is that they were re-introduced in Ziwa Rhino sanctuary by 2005 which is on your way to Murchison National Park .
There is nothing as thrilling as watching predators such as lions make moves on their prey, it’s an amazing experience since most antelopes are hunted down and killed without noticing. All this is best observed during the dry season where the grass is short so game viewing is at its best. Game drives are an all year round activity though during the rainy season the grass is a bit tall hence give challenge especially during game viewing since some animals might be missed out.
