Murchison Falls National Park
The Thunder of the NileThe best experiences are those that need no words. At the top of Murchison Falls in Uganda, even if you wanted to throw words into the misty air, you’d need to be very determined to yell them loud enough for anyone to hear over the roaring of the Nile River as it tumbles through the gorge. Perhaps the most iconic river in all of Africa, in the legends of the most ancient civilizations, the Nile River holds a special mystique at any point in its path. But here at Murchison Falls, you can feel its weight rumbling beneath your feet, feel the spray on your face (make sure you have a lens cap for your camera!), and hear the reverence it demands in the overwhelming thunder.
