Murchison Falls

Kabalega Falls, also known as Murchison Falls, waterfall in Uganda, in east central Africa, on the Nile River. At the falls the waters of the Victoria Nile are forced through a narrow gap in the rock about 6 m (about 20 ft) wide. The river drops 122 m (400 ft) in three separate cascades and flows westward into Lake Albert.
