Nile Delta Cruises – Murchison Falls
Nile delta cruises (4-5 hours) from USD55 – per adult, subject to minimum numbers on board.
The Victoria Nile delta, a 20km voyage downstream from Paraa, is home to rare wetland birds including shoebill and papyrus endemic species. Scheduled delta area cruises with a “breakfast on board” option are offered in the mornings (subject to minimum numbers) departing from our jetty at Paraa on the South Bank at 07.00am. We can also tailor make your trip with a private boat and timings to suit.
Birding, transfers, walking up the falls. From USD250 per boat 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 viewing 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 your wishes and we will accommodate you as best we can.
Cruise and Safari
Your park experience can be enhanced by combining river voyages with pre-arranged vehicle collection. Travel by boat to the delta and return to Paraa 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 Paraa by vehicle – either your own or we can arrange one for hire.
Game Drives and Transfers
Our Murchison river safaris base has 4×4 Land Cruisers with game viewing roofhatches available for game drives around the delta area of the park, to the top of Murchison Falls, or for transfers between airstrips and lodges.
