Suggested activity at Paraa Safari Lodge

As Murchison Falls is the main attraction of the national park, there are several ways to travel to, and to view the falls:

Launch trips on the Nile

A highlight of any visit to the Murchison Falls Conservation Area is the launch trip to view the magnificent Murchison Falls.

Trips normally depart at 9.00 am and 2.00 pm. Hippos and crocodiles are abundant and you will see plenty of game and birdlife. The voyage takes about three hours.

Hike to the top of the Falls

Guests who enjoy rigorous exercise may disembark from the launch in the Fajao gorge for the 45-60 minute climb to the Top of the Falls.

One can then walk back to the boat (by prior arrangement) or be collected by a vehicle at the top. A UW A ranger guide is required for this activity.

Drive to the Falls

The most rewarding times for game drives are the early morning and late afternoon/early evening.

A drive through the scenic Buligi area west of Paraa to the Delta Point (where the Victoria Nile passes through the northern tip of Lake Albert to become the Albert Nile) takes around three hours. Expect to see elephant, buffalo, giraffe, Jackson’s hartebeest, and oribi.

With luck, lion and perhaps even a leopard may be sighted.

Morning game drives start at 7 am.

Breakfast can be taken beforehand at 6.30 am or afterward at around 10 am. Evening game drives start at 4 pm. With prior notice, the lodge will book a UWA ranger guide to accompany you and help spot the game.
