Why We Like This Lodge

Eco-conscious: Nile Safari Lodge makes good use of its natural surroundings. Water from the Nile River is filtered into drinking water. Safari luxuries like private fridges are solar-powered, and the lodge was built using local wood and craftsmanship.

Minimally intrusive design: elegantly crafted with local stones, eucalyptus wood, grass-thatched roofs and an open-plan layout, this lodge seamlessly blends in with the scenery, without compromising comfort or aesthetics. 

Superb location: situated within floating distance of Murchison Falls, Nile Safari Lodge is the perfect luxury base to explore the park.

Family run: If you are looking for accommodation with a personal touch and great attention to the little details, you don't need to look much further than Nile Safari Lodge.

Private plunge pool and seating area with a wonderful view.


Scattered between tall trees and thick shrub, Nile Safari Lodge offers guests a secluded sanctuary. Eight en-suite thatched-roof bandas - each with a spacious seating area, day bed, and indoor and outdoor showers - provides guests with complete privacy and comfort, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the exquisite view of the Nile from your private viewing deck.

Ideal for families and larger groups, the family villa accommodates eight people with a living room, private swimming pool, lunch service and spectacular views of the Shoebill Peninsula.

Enjoy a romantic evening under the stars. If you opt for an exclusive banda, you can enjoy the private plunge pool - a perfect choice for honeymooners and couples.

Six deluxe bandas, with an open-plan seating area and private deck.


Guests have the choice of dining in the restaurant, on the terrace or underneath the shaded pergola.

For those wanting a more intimate experience, a candlelit dinner on your private deck can be arranged for you.

The lodge restaurant provides delicious international dishes with a safari twist, and fresh-baked bread and pastries every day. 

Spend the hot afternoons unwinding with a cooling swim in the infinity pool, or lounge on the sunbeds with an ice-cold cocktail from the bar. 

Wi-Fi and hot water are all powered by solar.

Nile River Lodge is superbly located to explore everything Murchison Falls National Park has to offer.

Starting with an early morning wake-up call, head out on to a game drive before enjoying a picnic under the shade of an acacia tree - safaris in Murchison are the quintessential Africa experience. 

For nature lovers, a short hike to the top of Murchison Falls, and a river cruise down the Nile is a fantastic way to experience the serenity and untamed beauty of the park. 

Next, head into the Budongo Forest Reserve and trek through the thick forest undergrowth in search of chimps in their natural habitat.

Evening bike safaris are another popular activity around the lodge.
