Murchison Falls National Park is the largest national park in Uganda and is the main national park used for many traditional safaris, where volunteers are looking to spot the Big 5 (elephant, lions, leopards, giraffes and water buffalo). Renowned for its rough roads, the beauty of the park and abundance of wildlife certainly offset the hardships safari goers have to endure while traveling to Murchison Falls.
