Experience Highlights

  • Duration: 3 hours

An afternoon boat trip on the Nile gives you the opportunity to explore the park from a different perspective. Stirring upstream towards the falls, you search for the animals and birds that inhabit this lush riverine area. You might encounter large pods of Hippo and huge Nile Crocodiles basking along the riverbanks. Elephant are frequently observed playing in the water, often within a few metres of the boat. Defassa waterbuck, Warthog, Bushbuck, and Cape buffalo frequent this area. Troops of Olive baboons and Black and White Colobus monkeys also inhabit the riverine woods. In sight of the falls, you have the opportunity to depart the boat at the base of the falls to begin a hike to the top of the falls (approx. 90min walk). This is a breath-taking natural spectacle.
