'Endangered' Murchison falls national park attracts most tourists

By View Uganda

The Uganda Wild Life Authority-UWA recently revealed that Murchison Falls National Park recorded the largest number of visitors. They noted that the park, which is home to Murchison Falls National Park received a whole 104,000 tourists in the year 2018-2019. It was closely followed by Queen Elizabeth National Park with over 84,000.

Besides the thunderous attraction of its waterfalls and variety of wildlife roaming freely, Murchison falls National Park’s cultural set up makes it stand out. Combining Banyoro, Alur, Acholi and some Langi, its human populace is quite interesting.

However, according to Uganda Wildlife Authority, foreign tourists seeking national parks alone could go up to 300,000, a number of whom have recently mostly been seeking out Murchison Falls. UWA agrees that generally though, parks reported an increase in the number of visitors compared to other tourist destinations. Sadly, not only is the debate to turn the water falls into a hudro power generating spot, parts of the park is going to be drilled for oil.
