The river divides the park between a Northern and Southern section as it makes its way through multiple rapids and waterfalls to Lake Albert.

Also, giraffes, lions, antelope, waterbucks, buffaloes, hippos and crocodiles can all be spotted. Game drives take place on the tracks in the northern section which you reach by taking a ferry across the river. This park guarantees adventure!
