Set in the northwest of Uganda in Murchison Falls National Park, Nile Safari Lodge has a lovely setting on the river Nile, downstream from the famous Falls.
There are 6 wooden cabins and 4 tents covered with thatch. All the rooms have a river view from their verandah. The rooms have twin beds and en-suite bathrooms with flush loo and an outside bucket shower. Tents 1-4 have solar power and the rest run on power from a generator. Rooms 7 and 8 are family cabins.
There is a nice swimming pool. It is quite a walk from the main building, but has a good view over the Nile and is a pleasant place to while away an afternoon.
Most of the staff are local and it is a friendly place. The food is good.
This is our favourite lodge in the park.
This is a Ugandan-owned lodge which uses solar power, and, unusually provides 'crocodile guards' for the water collection areas for local people.
