The best time for the flight is always early morning hours where you can spot the animals such as lions, herds of buffaloes, antelopes, hippos, elephants among others moving down the stream and as well going for their hunt and as well where they are likely to spend their day. This moment is filled with exhilaration. Across the parks where the exercise takes place, travelers commence the experience at an early hour, starting at 6:30 am for a one-hour adventure.
