Why We Like This Lodge
- Uninterrupted Views: open plan architecture ensures guests have magnificent views of the Nile, whether they are in bed watching the sunrise over the waters or in the restaurant, enjoying a meal, the exquisite scenery can be taken in from anywhere in the lodge.
- Dramatic Style: unafraid to be bold, striking colours blended with traditional materials and African artefacts make up the unique decor of this lodge, perfect for those who want something a little different.
- Seclusion: nestled between tall trees each cabin or cottage is perfectly situated to ensure your privacy, enabling you to completely unwind, with nothing but bush sounds to break the silence.
- Giving Back: they donate 20% of their profits to charities such as the Jane Goodall Institute, which conserve Uganda's chimpanzees.
Kabalega Wilderness Lodge has a variety of accommodations on offer. If you are looking to splurge there are four deluxe cottages, with the best views of the Nile, private veranda and en-suite bathroom.
However, if you are looking for an authentic safari experience at a smaller price, there are slightly cheaper cabins, which are less spacious but still include a private veranda, fantastic views and en-suite facilities.
Kabalega also offers two budget rooms in the main building which are basic, but allow you to enjoy everything else the lodge has to offer.
The lodge has electricity and hot water available 24 hours a day. Laundry and turn down services, mosquito nets, and Wi-Fi.
Perched on the highest point of the riverbank, the thatched-roof bar and restaurant has a wonderful view and serves a blend of international and safari cuisine.
For breakfast, guests can sit on the river deck and observe the elephants who have come for an early morning drink or swim in the Nile River.
There are plenty of excursions for guests to choose from, all easily accessed from Kabalega Wilderness Lodge, due to its proximity to the Murchison Falls National Park's centre.
An early morning game drive or a boat cruise down the Nile are always a great option for wildlife viewing.
However, if you wish to do something a little more unusual, you can go fishing for Nile perch, hike to the top of the falls, or spend the day trekking in the Budongo Forest Reserve to see the chimpanzees.
