Boat trip adventures in Murchison falls, The cruise on the Nile River from the jetty Murchison Falls National Park has been the Park’s most popular attraction since the 1950s. These are scheduled trips every afternoon departing by 2.30pm as well as in the mornings at 08.30am and 11.00am when demand requires. Pickups and drop offs by boat from the North bank at Paraa as well as lodges along the Southern banks of the Nile river can be pre-arranged. We also organise a special Waterfall Sundowner Trip with drinks and snacks included which departs at 3.30pm every afternoon (subject to minimum numbers) and private trips on an exclusive basis.
Private Waterfall Cruises
Pick up point and timings to suit your excursion, subject to trip duration and boat capacity / type. This is an excellent opportunity for viewing the large resident populations of hippos and crocodiles, as well as other wildlife and extensive bird life, including a wide range of water birds, and a huge colony of cliff-nesting red throated Bee-eaters, along the way.
Bird watching, transfers, walking up the falls. Subject to trip duration and boat capacity / type. We can offer you a private boat on the river exclusively for activities and timings to suit you. Perhaps some fishing combined with bird watching or simply taking in the beauty and views from the boat as you search for the animals en-route. Your guide can show you special places for a stop off and walk or moor up for a while and enjoy your sundowners. Just tell us know your wishes and we will accommodate you as best we can.
Cruise and Safari
Your National Park experience can be enhanced by combining River voyages with pre-arranged vehicle collection. Travel by boat to the delta point and return to your lodge with a game drive through the game-rich Buligi area. Or leave your boat in Fajao Gorge and climb to the Top of the Falls for the view down into the thunderous chasm, before returning to your lodge by vehicle.
The Victoria Nile delta, a 20km voyage downstream from Paraa, is home to rare wetland bird species including a rear Shoebill stork and Papyrus endemic species.
