The park is in northwestern Uganda, spreading inland from the shore of Lake Albert around the Victoria Nile. Together with the adjacent 748 square kilometers (289sqmi) Bugungu Wildlife Reserve and the 720 square kilometers (280sqmi) Karuma Wildlife Reserve, the park forms the Murchison Falls Conservation Area (MFCA).
In the park,four of the“bigﬁve”(Cape buﬀalo, African elephant, lion, and leopard The rwoth’s child giraffe) can be seen, especially in the northern part (above the Nile). Because of excessive hunting and poaching, black rhinoceros became extinct by 1983, but were re-introduced into Uganda in 2005 by Rhino Fund Uganda. White rhinoceros are now being bred again in the 7,000 hectares (27sqmi) Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, which is located 70 kilometers (43mi) south of the park. Their mission is to reintroduce small herds of rhinos (around ﬁve at a time), while retaining a nucleus breeding herd in the sanctuary.

Chimpanzee tracking has become an activity popular with eco-tourists,necessitating behavioral guidelines for visitors in order to avoid un due disturbance of both animals and forest. Trails have been cutcriss-crossing the forest,initially to ease access for research workers and since then used by eco-tourists, forest animals and poachers.
