After an early morning cup of African Coffee, you will go for a morning game drive. Here you will have a chance of spotting Elephants, Lions, Cape buffaloes, Rothschild’s giraffes, hartebeest, Waterbucks, Oribi, Bushbuck, Bohor reedbuck, hyenas and a leopard if you are lucky. Return to the lodge for breakfast and lunch.
Afternoon boat cruise upstream the calm Victoria Nile to the bottom of the falls stopping just tens of meters from the “Devil’s Cauldron”. En-route, marvel at the toothsome hippos, crocodiles and over this 17km stretch you may see elephants, waterbucks, Uganda Kobs and crocodiles. This is also a zone of many bird species like Goliath heron, Egyptian goose, pelican bee-eater, kingfisher, hornbill, cormorant and the rare shoebill stork. There you leave the boat and start your – quite heavy – hike to the Top of the Falls (approx. 1 hour).
See where the world’s longest river explodes violently through a narrow cleft in the Rift Valley escarpment to plunge into a frothing pool 43m below.
