DAY 1 | BOAT RIDE & GAME DRIVE | MEAL PLAN: HB
Considering the park is located just a three hours’ drive from Kampala, the departure time can be much later or 7 AM. Upon arrival, you will have a safari drive in the park as you go to the jetty where you will take a boat. In addition to the beautiful scenery, and simple pleasure attached to being out on the water, the boat trip reliably produces good sightings for hippo, crocodile, buffalo, waterbuck and bushbuck and it’s also worth looking for the three species of resident otter.
An Option in the morning is to visit the mashy mabamba swamps to see the elusive shoebill stork and later proceed to the designated national park.
We will have another short game drive as we head to your accommodation.
