Why Northern Uganda tourist attractions
Murchison Falls National Park as part of the Northern Uganda tourist attractions is the largest conservation area where so many tourist activities can be enjoyed.

A boat cruise to the base of Victoria falls where water squeezes itself into a narrow gorge to explode into what has been termed as the strongest and powerful waterfalls on the planet earth. You can’t get this experience anywhere apart from Murchison Falls National Park. On this same boat cruise, you get a chance of seeing many animals such as hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes, elephants and so much more. You then have a boat cruise to the delta where wildlife experience is stunning. You may encounter several animals such as elephants, buffaloes and hippos crossing while the delta area is also popular with the rare shoebill stock. In Murchison Falls National Park, you get a chance of trekking habituated chimpanzees in Budongo Forest at Kaniyo Pabidi. Budongo forest has the highest number of chimpanzees in Uganda and while at Murchison Falls National Park, one can trek chimps at slightly lower costs compared to Kibale Forest National Park.
Kidepo Valley National Park is among northern Uganda tourist attractions that are worth visiting. Located in north eastern Uganda, Kidepo National Park has been rated as one of the best places to go for a game drive. No other place that you can see many animals than Kidepo.
