The day starts during peak wildlife activity periods, when both predators & prey are commonly seen foraging, exploring, and interacting with each other on the vast expanses of the National Park. With the use of binoculars, we can unobtrusively observe authentic Uganda wild behaviours that unfold before us.  Your professional Msafiri tours guide and ranger is there to interpret the events taking place, and share their in-depth knowledge of these intimate experiences.

One of the park’s most unique features, is the afternoon boat safari, as we continue our journey through the entirety of the safari.  Following our late-afternoon/evening game drive, we’ll return to our accommodations for another nourishing dinner and a comfortable night’s rest.
