After an early morning breakfast, we shall head out to Kasenyi plains in search of game and depending on nature’s will, we shall see the Savanna elephant (the biggest land mammal), herds of buffaloes, Uganda Kob, Defassa Waterbuck, Nile Bushbuck, Common Warthog, Giant Forest Hog as well as big cats like the Leopard and Lion not forgetting the laughing Hyenas which dominate the wild songs especially in the nights. We shall crown our game drive with a visit to the salt lake which has a community craft market for shopping.
We shall head back to the lodge for relaxation before lunch and then head to the Kazinga channel jetty for a lifetime experience on this natural water body. The afternoon boat cruise will expose us to several other goodies like the fishing village, thousands of Hippos, crocodiles, Monitor lizard and an assorted list of water birds. Other big mammals come to the channel for drinking and bathing in the hot hours of this Equator centered park. Some of the birds expected include; lack-headed Gonolek, Martial Eagle, White-backed, Hooded and Lappet-faced Vultures, African Fish Eagle, Water Thick-knee, African Skimmer and Spoonbill, Hamerkop, Pied and Malachite Kingfishers, Wattled, Senegal and Spur-winged Lapwings, Red-necked Francolin and Lesser Flamingos among many others.
