Recommended Accommodation, Hotels, Lodges, Campsites in and near Murchison Falls National Park
Moderate and Up-Market Lodging Accommodations we recommend based on the feedback of our Clients at Murchison Falls National Park
Paraa Safari Lodge is situated on the bank of the the Nile River opposite the launch jetty. Architecturally, the lodge falls in the category of a 'hotel in bush' type of lodges - a double storey monolith that in most repects wouldn't look out of place on a beach or in a city - but the extensive use of natural materials and African interior decor give it a definite organic feel. The large and luxurious decorated rooms all have private balconies facing the river, walk-in mosquito netting and a specious bath or shower.
The three-course meals cost about $15 and have a strong international flavour, plus a daily choice for vegeteraians, and there is also a good, inexpensive snack menu for a casual passer-by.
The grounds are dominated by a curvaceous swimming pool, reportedly the largest in the country, and offer a good view of the Nile.
Logistically, it is the most conveniently located of the upmarket lodges for game drives in the north and the launch trip to the base of Murchison Falls.
The rooms are big and beautiful, and bathroom amenities are great, lobby/lounge is large with a marvelous welcoming atmosphere. The front desk folks make you feel immediately welcome. You have to have experienced \the roads and dust in Uganda to know how appreciated that is!!
e lodge is located on a slightly elevated point alongside the Nile and affords a great view of the river. Accommodation is either in tents or rooms, we stayed in the rooms and they were fairly well laid out.
If you don't have a laptop for lobby wifi, there are three desktop computers that anyone can use, right off the lobby.
The food was delicious at dinner and
breakfast. Meals are delightfully served - a
breakfast with countless of choices - eggs
prepared just to your liking, freshly baked
goods - Lunch on the verandah in a relaxing
atmosphere - served by attentive staff and
dinner as the African night sets - You have
had a long day and now a time to recount the
happenings of the day, the things along the
drive, the wildlife encountered, the top of
the falls, the boat ride up the River Nile.
The chief chef checks diners to make sure
all guests are happy. The candlelit terrrace
at dinner is beautiful.
