  • Very nice game drive potential, especially if you catch the early ferry across! We were on the second with our own 4x4 and it was a great start. The Waterfalls were quite nice to visit, but the drive over there was the least fun all day..
  • If you ever find yourself in Uganda, this is a must place to visit. The river cruise is one of those that you have to do. The amount of animals you’d see on this little boat ride rivals to most safari drives. And the falls itself is magnificent! the amount of water that pours thru it is incredible! But seeing a wild elephant drinking by the river up close from the river was just the mind blown moment and the highlight of the whole trip.
