Nile while taking in sights of elephants and other creatures quenching their thirst by the riverbank, as well as local wildlife including hippos, crocodiles and other reptiles, as well as waterfowl and other wildlife. After taking pictures at the location where you can clearly see the roaring waterfalls, you will draw to the spot where the falls squeeze through a 7-meter-deep valley to the Nile. Return to the lodge for dinner and a night after your day of activities.
