Traditional, simple and luxurious safari accommodation
The lodge is surprisingly secluded and being just 20km downstream from Murchison Falls, means it is an ideal base for exploring the National Park and visits to Murchison Falls itself.
Accommodation & Facilities
There is a choice of wooden chalet or luxury tent, both are comfortable and airy and have been thoughtfully placed to maximise your views. All of the guest accommodation is en-suite with a private balcony hovering over the River Nile, the perfect spot to enjoy a hot drink in the morning, or a sundowner after a day exploring.
The central area is thatched and cleverly integrated into the trees and rocks. There is a restaurant, bar and comfortable lounge area all with fantastic vantage points over the surrounding area. The central campfire is the perfect place for star gazing, dancing and sharing your adventures.
All meals are delicious and enhanced by the relaxed atmosphere, hearty English and continental breakfasts are served as well as some great Ugandan cuisine. Eat wherever takes your fancy, by the pool, in the restaurant, on your private deck or ask for a bush meal – always in specially chosen locations.
Boat trips to the bottom of Murchison Falls are an absolute must while you are here, as is a drive to the top. There are wildlife drives on the northern banks of the Nile where you can find giraffes, warthogs, elephants and buffalo, as well as a variety of antelope, leopards and lions.
Other activities include walking trails, sport fishing and village walks.
Nile Safari Lodge is made from locally sourced materials and employs local staff. The emphasis here is to enjoy the wildlife and nature naturally, with little or no impact on the environment.
