Day 2: Morning Game Drive in Northern Murchison, Afternoon Nile boat Safari & Hike to The Top of The Falls

Morning game drive starts between 6 am – 7 am depending on where you slept. The game drive is carried out in the open Savannah landscapes of northern Murchison where a range of grazers are visibly seen spread across.

These include the Oribis, Hartebeests, Kobs, and Defassa water-bucks, Topis, Buffaloes, Elephants and Rothschild Giraffes.

The carnivores like Lions, Leopard, and Spotted Hyenas among others thrive in the thicket patches. The game drive lasts 3 – 4 hours, relax and enjoy lunch.

At 2 pm, the Nile River cruise/ boat safari departs Paraa jetty heading to the bottom of the falls. It’s very historical to cruise on the world’s longest River with likely sights of Hippos, Nile crocodiles, birds like Kingfishers, Shoe-bill stork, and wild game on the river banks.

You are welcomed by the fascinating natural landmark – the greatest to ever happen on the River Nile course.

Murchison Falls, the entire Nile River squeezes itself to pass through a less than 7m ravine before falling 43m below generating a marvelous plume of spray and an iconic thunderous roar while the trademark rainbow taps in from the sky. Meet the driver guide at the top of the falls and transfer to the lodge for relaxation.
