Murchison Falls National Park (Uganda): Paraa ferry to temporarily close for maintenance!

According to East Africa specialist Wolfgang H. Thome, the Paraa Ferry in the Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda will be grounded for 12 days effective 08 May 2017 at 09:30 for general maintenance work. During this time, a technical team from the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) will service the ramps, pontoons, passenger decks, enginee and the transmission systems. UWA plans to resume operations on 20 May 2017 with a crossing at 17.00, but it is advised to check their website or else check the notices filed on their Facebook page.

Murchison Falls National Park is located in north western Uganda at the northern end of the Albertine Rift Valley about 300km by road northwest of the country's capital Kampala. The National Park spreads inland from the shore of Lake Albert around the Victoria Nile and covers 3,480km². Murchison Falls National Park is the largest and oldest conservation area in Uganda, hosting 76 species of mammals and 451 species of birds.
