Nile Safari Lodge

Nile Safari Lodge

Become a part of nature at the exotic Nile Safari Lodge in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda’s largest national park. On the southern banks of the Nile River, the lodge is partially hidden by the rich papyrus forest that surrounds it. Expansive decks open to views of the Nile, and at the water’s edge, giant crocodiles soak up the sun while hippos play nearby.

Wildlife sightings continue from each guest’s private balcony overlooking the river. Five wooden chalets and five luxury tents provide rest at the end of each day’s adventure. Spacious rooms feature en-suite bathrooms, comfortable beds, and an open, airy feel. An attentive staff member can even arrive each morning to serve early morning tea and coffee.

The main lodge area offers breathtaking views from a large deck shaded by giant fig trees. A restaurant and bar/lounge area provide exceptional food and beverage services throughout the day. The large swimming pool provides relief from the sun’s heat, and the open fire provides a perfect place to gather at day’s end and enjoy a sundowner, conversing, bird-watching, and stargazing.

Wildlife abounds, unimpeded by humans, and flourishes in its natural habitat. Nearby Murchison Falls offers exceptional wildlife viewing, particularly of hippo, crocodile, elephant, antelope, and a variety of birdlife. Game drives in the heart of Murchison Falls National Park often successfully track giraffe, buffalo, elephant, warthog, leopard, and lion.

Guests should plan a boat launch trip to the bottom of Murchison Falls. This half-day trip provides opportunities to see a variety of animal and bird species. During a drive to the top of Murchison Falls, guests thrill to see the almost permanent rainbow due to the powerful explosion of the Nile River through a small ravine. Walking trails provide the best chance to discover hundreds of native bird species with the lodge’s certified resident bird expert. Other popular activities include sport fishing for the elusive Nile perch, visits to Mubaku village, and African bush dining with traditional Ugandan cuisine.
