In the afternoon head out on the Victoria Nile for a boat ride. This is the biggest highlight during a Murchison Falls Safari as you will get a chance to spot lots of animals close. Expect to view lots of hippos, Nile crocodiles, elephants, buffalos, and lots of other animals that come to drink water, refresh and cool off the scorching sun and other to eat the fresh grass along the river banks.
The Nile is also a birds' heaven with species such as dwarf kingfisher, pied kingfisher, malachite kingfisher, skimmers, storks, Goliath heron, white-thighed hornbill and great blue turaco are some of the species among them.
