You will watch nature unfold before your eyes, watching the birds, lions, leopards, elephants, hippos, buffaloes, warthogs, and giraffes among others prepare for another beautiful day in their natural habitat.

After lunch prepare yourselves for the rewarding launch cruise up the river Nile taking you straight up to the centerpiece and main attraction of the park “the Murchison Falls” an awesome display of the power of nature.

As the boat sails gently up the river along the riverbank, you will be able to see crocodiles, an abundance of hippos, herds of elephants, buffaloes, antelopes, lots of birds including the fish eagle, storks and so much more. On your journey downriver enjoy the Nile as you take another look at the beautiful scenery around you.

Prepare for a hike to the Top of the Falls (approx. 1 hour). It is a strenuous hike but worth it. See where the world’s longest river explodes violently through a narrow gorge in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 43m below.

Your driver/guide will be waiting for you to bring you back to the lodge.
