PARAA VEHICLE FERRY OUT OF SERVICE – UGANDA SAFARI NEWS
The Uganda safari destination of Murchison Falls National Park is bisected by world’s longest river – River Nile as it makes its way from Lake Victoria to Mediterranean Sea leading to formation of the southern and northern sections of the park. These two sections have varied ecosystem where the south is marked by dense thicket and a bit forested compared to the open savannah grass land that shapes the northern section dotted with scattered borassus palms.
Due to this environment setting, a range of wild life have found its way in the northern section including buffaloes, Uganda Kobs, elephants, Jacksons hartebeest, lions, giraffe among other wildlife which in turn makes the are ideal for game viewing by travellers undertaking a safari tour in Uganda.
The Paraa vehicle ferry has for long provided an easy transfer from the south to the north and vice versa for both passengers and safari vehicles. The ferry has been operating at scheduled time table that commences on 7 am in the morning and continues at various intervals till evening. Thus, it not good news to hear that the Paraa vehicle ferry is going to be out of service for a couple of days from 10th – 16th November 2014 for repairing which would definitely cause inconveniences in the transfer of travellers on Uganda safari tours.
The move implies the change of routes where the connection to the northern sector would be through Wankwar gate and if one has booked accommodation in the south, he / she leaves the vehicle at Paraa and for a boat taxi to cross to south. However after repairing the ferry, the connection will resume in its most perfect way and Uganda wildlife safaris in Murchison Falls National Park will continue to thrive.
