It’s then over the river, being sure to dodge the baboons basking in the sun by the road and drive along the northern border of the park to reach Tangi gate. Here you’ll enter the park for an afternoon game driving to track down lions, game herds, giraffes and elephants as well as a vast variety of bird life. After your game drive you’ll return to camp to watch the sunset over the River Nile. Be sure to watch out for more elephants near your camp as they head down to the waters edge in the early evening!

Later on, return back to the lodge for lunch and some relaxation for probably a short time. After, set out for the afternoon Boat Ride on the Victoria Nile which is the high spot of any Murchison Falls Safari where lots of animals can be spotted at a close encounter.
During this amazing experience, there’re higher chances of spotting lots of hippos, Nile crocodiles, Elephants, Buffaloes, and many other animals that come to drink water, refresh and cool themselves off the scorching sun while other animals are grazing on the fresh grass along the river banks.
Day 3 – Morning drive through the park and back to Kampala/Entebbe
Early morning after breakfast, visit the top of the falls to see how the Nile forces its way through a 7 m gorge creating a breath taking water falls.
