Falls National Park
This is the largest park in Uganda. The park is renowned for its
scenic beauty and the spectacular falls. The diversity of the park
attracts carnivores , chimpanzees, Cape buffalo and a lot of plain game. The falls offer a spectacular view from the top where
the River Nile narrows from 50 metres to crash through a 7 metre gorge,
falling 45 metres to the rocks below. The cruise to the base of the
falls is a must, whereby one can see crocodiles, hippos and different species
of birds which cannot be found in other game parks in Uganda. Guided
walking and bird watching safaris are highly recommended.

forest belt and bamboo zone. This terrain makes gorilla treking exciting
