Visitors to Murchison Falls National Park could take advantage of the beautiful wildlife drives and boat rides to the falls’ base and delta. It may take 2 to 4 days to tour Murchison Falls National Park.

Following breakfast, you will take the boat to the northern portion of Murchison Falls National Park for an early morning wildlife drive. This northern section of Murchison Falls National Park, known as Paraa, is teeming with wildlife, including lions, buffaloes, elephants, numerous antelopes, leopards, and much more. The delta region is also home to a large number of aquatic creatures, including hippos, crocodiles, and the endangered shoebill population. At Murchison Falls National Park, nature provides such that wild animals feed and roam organically; seeing any animal will rely on your luck of the day.

Following that, you will travel back to your accommodation for lunch before embarking on an afternoon boat tour to the foot of the falls. This boat tour to the foot of the falls is regarded as the pinnacle of all activities at Murchison Falls National Park since it allows visitors to witness a variety of water and land creatures. Expect to encounter buffalo, elephants, crocodiles, and a variety of water birds as you sail upstream to the base of the falls, where water squeezes itself into a tiny valley before exploding as it goes down the falls. Return to the lodge to stay overnight.
