Home to Murchison Falls, the most powerful waterfall in the world, Murchison Falls National Park is found in Northwestern Uganda in East Africa, along the shores of Lake Albert. It spans over 3,893 square kilometers, encompassing Victoria Nile River in its fold, with Karuma Falls to the North. Locally known as Kabalega Falls, Murchison Falls attains its grandiose global status from the astonishing surging and funneling of the Victoria Nile River into a narrow 7meter-wide channel, and pouring over the 43ft. high cliff into the rocks below.
The constriction of many waters into a narrow flow leads to a massive pressure buildup, as an equivalent of 300 cubic meters of water is forced through a gorge less than 23 ft. wide every second. Victoria Nile River Flows through Karuma Falls first, continuing into a less chaotic runoff. But as it collects into the narrow mouth of Murchison Falls, the waters howl and roar as they plummet into the dreaded Devil’s Cauldron.
