Boating on the Nile River

Cruise Africa’s mightiest river in Murchison Falls National Park

The essence of boating on the Nile River

Take to the waves on an exciting boating adventure that will delight you with spectacular landscapes and lots of animal life. Marvel at the scenic Fajao Gorge as you travel upstream towards Murchison Falls.

Watch with bated breath as gigantic crocodiles slip beneath the waves and families of hippo grunt and jostle. Alternatively, explore the Victoria Nile Delta, where early morning travellers are greeted with the magical sight of the mists rising over tranquil waters. Keep an eye out for rare birds, including the shoebill and papyrus gonoleks.

Quite sublime, with numerous endemic mammal species to be seen, the Delta boasts Rothschild’s giraffe and elephant, and in the shady afternoon the muddy riverbanks are swamped with attentive elephants. The Red-throated bee-eater a local endemic to Murchison Falls National Park also nests on the riverbank.

Murchison Falls National Park is split into two by the Nile River, the water flows all-year-round surging into Lake Albert and then coursing its way to the South Sudan. This is a magnificent boat safari, where you have a fantastic expanse of wildlife both lining the riverbanks, and immersed in the water near the shore.

Keep your camera handy to snap the spectacular wildlife amidst the stunning lush scenery.
