Have lunch at Paraa restaurant then enjoy a boat ride as you sail on the Great Nile River and take photos of animals like hippos, elephants, water bucks, crocodiles as they drink and bathe at the shore.

Expectations

This tour by AA Safaris opens to you the well endowed fauna and flora Murchison Fall National Park has to offer. Seated on Uganda’s largest conservation area is the famous Murchison Falls for which Uganda can boast about being the “Pearl of Africa”. In addition, River Nile, the world’s longest river waters passes through the park dividing it into north and south sectors. A boat ride on the Nile River is a definite activity to take part in. A short hike to the top of the rocks by the falls to take photos of the mighty falls is by far the most breathtaking site of Uganda’s unique natural beauty.
