After an early breakfast, leave for Murchison Falls National Park (the northern sector) with lunch along the way.

The falls are the centrepiece of the park and final event in an 80 km stretch of rapids. The mighty cascade drains the last of the river’s energy, transforming it into a broad, placid stream that flows quietly across the Rift Valley floor into Lake Albert. There are a lot of animals to see on your way to the hotel, such as elephants, giraffes and buffaloes. Hippos, Nile crocodiles and aquatic birds are permanent residents here.
