Depart for Murchison fall national park, Murchison Falls National Park has 76 mammal species and 451 bird species. The River Nile runs through the park and attracts Nile crocodile, hippo and the rare semi-aquatic Sitatunga antelope. Lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and Rothschild’s giraffes are just a few of the big Five mammals you may see.
Overnight at Paraa Lodge (FB)

The lodge is located on the Northern part of the river. As such, you can get up early and be virtually alone with lions for long while before tourists waiting for the ferry to pick them from the southern bank. Without it, they can't cross over due to the massive water volume of the river.

After the morning game drive, you will have boat cruises on a 24kilometer stretch of river Nile that dissects that park into two major territories, North and South. Stretches of white water rapids dot the river beautiful. They are created as a result of the resistance that the river encounters as it forces its way downstream. The shoreline is alive with lots of lush vegetation that provides lions a perfect place to camouflage as they wait to ambush prey.
