Ferry across the Nile
After an early breakfast, you begin your safari. Cross the Nile with the ferry at 7 am and make a game drive up to the Albert Delta Point. Be alert for lion, leopard, reedbuck, elephant, giraffe, buffalo, hartebeest, oribi, and Uganda kob. Special birds to look out for here include Shoebill, Northern Carmine Bee-Eater, Abyssinian Roller, Ground Hornbill, Red-throated Bee-eaters, Goliath Heron, Saddle-billed Stork, White-Browed Sparrow Weaver, Silver bird, Buff-bellied Warbler, Fulvous Whistling-Duck, Senegal Thick-knee, Osprey, Water Thick-knee, Black-headed Lapwing, Long-toed Lapwing, Little Bittern, Red-necked Falcon, Blue-breasted Bee-eater, Hauglin’s Francolin, Black Billed Wood-Dove, Namaqua Dove, Vinaceous Dove and Grosbeak Weaver, Bar-breasted Firefinch, Red-winged Grey Warbler, Spotted Morning Thrush, White Rumped Seed Eater, Red-throated Bee-eater, Beautiful Sunbird, Speckle-fronted and Golden-backed Weavers, and White-rumped Canary. In the afternoon, a boat trip on the Nile takes you to the roaring waters at the base of the Murchison Falls, where you have the biggest concentration of the greatest hippos and crocodile on the river. Some of the crocs may exceed 20 feet in length. Scattered among the hippos and crocs, you will find birds such as the Yellow-Billed Stork, Egyptian Plover, Red-chested Bee-Eater, White-faced and Fulvous Whistling Duck, Rock Pratincole, Wire-tailed Swallow, and Goliath and Purple Heron.
Again, you will have the opportunity of accompanying Paul on a night game drive.
