Paraa ferry in Murchison Falls National Park has resumed operations after water levels in River Nile receded.
On Tuesday, water levels on River Nile dangerously rose and submerged the ferry docking point at Paraa Murchison Falls National Park. The flooding made it difficult for vehicles to enter the ferry, witnesses said. “The ferry at Paraa is now operational. We regret the inconveniences caused by the floods that had swept it to the ground,” Mr Bashir Hangi, the Uganda Wildlife Authority spokesperson, told Sunday Monitor yesterday.
The ferry is mainly used by tourists crossing River Nile to view various tourist attractions. River Nile burst its banks, cutting off Pakwach Bridge, the main gateway to West Nile Sub-region. The region is also a gateway to northeastern DRC, South Sudan, and Central African Republic.
