Top Descriptions

This is one of the best opportunities in the country for a riverside safari. Deep in the heart of QENP, you’ll see hippos, crocodiles, waterbuck, elephants and more all close up on this boat cruise. Bring a camera along, because you’ll surely be wanting to snap away. Just don’t get too close to the edge of the boat!

Top Tips

Sit on the left side of the boat for the best viewing conditions – or stand upstairs on the viewing platform.
The UWA boats might not be as comfortable as those of the Mweya Safari Lodge, but they do at least include an onboard toilet. However, we did experience some questionable levels of professionalism from the staff of the UWA (in the sense that they reversed into a herd of hippo simply to aggravate them into action).
You might want to bring another layer, especially if the clouds roll in, as it can be quite a bit chillier on the water than in Mweya.
