Paraa Lodge is one of the bigger lodges in Uganda, but it has the advantage of being in the best location in Murchison Falls Park.  It is located near most of the Game Drive Tracks which are on the Paraa Lodge side of the Nile, the ferry crossing and where board the boat for your boat safari up the River Nile.

Paraa Lodge has a great swimming pool that even has a bar on one end so that you do not have to get out of the water when you order a drink.

 Day 2: Early morning breakfast (or game drive first) and off you are for another game drive across the savannah, along Lake Albert Delta, abundant wildlife as you move slowly as the sun rises.

Welcome to Africa.  What you are sensing and feeling, seeing around you cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world, this is Murchison Falls with its birds, lions, leopards, elephants, hippos, buffaloes, warthogs, giraffes, humorous appearing warthogs. This is Africa and you are on safari in the heart of it – Uganda.

After lunch it is one of the highlights of your Murchison Falls Park Safari, the boat safari trip up the Nile River.  Slowly moving along the river bank viewing crocodiles, an abundance of hippos, elephants, buffaloes, antelopes, lots of birds including the fish eagle, storks and so much more.

The boat moves gently up the river and stay on the left hand side so that you see most of the animals who come to the river.  Herds of Elephants cooling off, Hippopotamus frolicking, crocodiles just dozing in the African sun.

Then there are the Murchison Falls which are an awesome display of the power of nature.  The river is 50 meters above the falls, moves down through a 6 meter gorge and falls down 43 meters, the sound is deafening and the sight makes one realize how forceful nature can be.  The water at the bottom of the falls is churning, any vegetation is literally is munched by the force of the water resulting in large sheets of foam, not from pollution but from the power of the river.

Close by there is a bank on the river filled with Nile crocodiles basking in the afternoon sun, just down from there you c an see a group of hippos frolicking in the water of the Nile.  There are literally thousands of hippopotamus to be found here, birds in abundance.
