The park is a home to more than 75 mammal species and on a game drive, chances are that you spot 80% of the wildlife here. The elephants, waterbucks, warthogs, hyenas, buffaloes, oribis, bushbucks, lions, leopards and many other species are some of the guaranteed glances.

After lunch, cool off the warmth from the heavy lunch on a sensational boat cruise along Africa’s longest river, the Nile River. Have amazing views of the waterfalls, and banks evaded by numerous crocodiles, hippos and several sea bird species.

An eventual hike to top of the falls soon exposes you to the thunderous roar of the waters of Murchison falls; where it squeezes itself to penetrate through a less than 8m gorge; forming a rapid drop of spray marked by a trade mark rain bow as it plunges 43m.

This is below to what is known as the Devil’s Cauldron. Retire from this rather sensational 3 hour activity for relaxation, dinner and overnight at the lodge.
