Game Drive, Boat Cruise and Hiking
You will have breakfast at your leisure before departing for a classic African safari in the park as you drive towards Para Lodge, where you will almost certainly see buffalos, antelopes, and elephants, as well as warthogs. This satisfying game drive takes about 3-6 hours depending on the season and the movement of these animals; it is a beautiful game with a lot to see such as herds of elephants, hippos, buffalos, antelopes like Jackson’s Heartbeats’, Uganda Kobs, Dafforsa Waterbuck, and much more wildlife; on lucky days, see a pride of lions and a solitary leopard.
Taking a boat ride on the Nile allows tourists to float only meters from hundreds of enormous hippos, sunbathing crocodiles, and buffaloes, while elephants linger along the shoreline. This will definitely be one of your tour’s highlights. Arrive at the bottom of the falls and start hiking hearing the powerful force of the water crashing against the rocks in the narrow 7-meter gorge. You will see the rainbow that doesn’t disappear and you’ll be showered by the splashing waters. When you reach the top of the falls, your driver will be waiting for you and you’ll drive back to your lodge.
