Before you enter the park, make your way to the top of the falls to see the full splendour of the Nile!

Day 2: Morning Game Drive – Afternoon Boat Cruise to the Falls.

You might spot some of the big five; elephants, lions, buffaloes, and giraffes as well as warthogs, bush backs, water bucks, heart-beasts, and many other animals. After breakfast, lunch, and refreshments, head back to the resort to get ready for a boat ride upstream to the base of the falls on the calm Victoria Nile. Along the way, you may witness water bucks, crocodiles, hippos, and a variety of birds, including egrets, pelicans, kingfishers, weaver birds, and herons.
