Uganda's Murchison Falls: The Most Powerful Waterfall

Uganda’s Murchison Falls: The Most Powerful Waterfall

Murchison Falls, also known as Kabalega Falls, is a waterfall between Lake Kyoga and Lake Albert on the White Nile River in Uganda. At the top of Murchison Falls, the Nile forces its way through a gap in the rocks, only 7 metres (23 ft) wide, and tumbles 43 metres (141 ft), before flowing westward into Lake Albert. The outlet of Lake Victoria sends around 300 cubic meters per second (11,000 ft³/s) of water over the falls, squeezed into a gorge less than ten metres (30 ft) wide. This spectacular display of nature's drama makes the Murchison falls the most powerful waterfall in the world. Read on!
