Chimpanzee Trekking

Kaniyo Pabidi forest (8 kms from Kicumbanyobo Gate on Masindi Paraa road or 56kms from Paraa Safari Lodge) a beautiful natural forest dominated by giant mahogany and ironwood trees. Chimpanzees  tracked from Kaniyo Pabidi tourism site, run by the Jane Goodall Institute. Bird-life here is abundant including; the Chocolate-Backed Kingfisher, the White-thighed Hornbill; and Puvel’s Illaposis, which is found nowhere else in East Africa.

Rabongo Forest is an island of tropical river forest set in a sea of grassland in the south-east of the conservation area, 1 1/2 hours’ drive from the lodge. The forest can be explored on foot in search of primates such as Black-white Colobus, red tailed monkeys, baboons and occasionally chimpanzees.

Game Drive

The most rewarding times for game drives are the early mornings and late afternoon/early evening. A drive through the scenic Buligi area west of Paraa to the Delta Point (where the Victoria Nile passes through the Northern tip of Lake Albert to become the Albert Nile), takes around three hours. Expect to see elephant, buffalo, giraffe, Jackson’s hartebeest and oribi. With luck, lion and perhaps even a leopard may be sighted.

Morning game drives start at 7am. Breakfast can be taken beforehand at 6.30am or later at around 10am. Evening game drives start at 4pm. With prior notice, the lodge will book a UWA ranger guide to accompany you and help spot game.

Nature Walk

The wilds of Murchison Falls Conservation Area  explored on foot as well as by vehicle. A trail from the lodge winds down to the river, passing gullies and low hills. Animals, birds and plants closely and quietly observed. Nature walks are also available at Rabongo Forest, the Top of the fall and in Kaniyo Pabidi forest. WA ranger guides  hired for these nature walks.

Boat to the Delta

Another interesting but more placid activity is the boat trip through the extensive papyrus delta through which the Victoria Nile flows into Lake Albert. Here again there are plenty of animals and birds to see with an excellent chance of seeing the rare Shoebill. This trip takes four to five hours. The lodge can assist with booking seats on the boat.
