Murchison River Lodge

Tented camp on the banks of the world famous River Nile
Murchison Falls National ParkUganda· 12 Rooms · ££

Eco-friendly, rustic bush camp in a beautiful location

A well-laid out camp offering privacy, comfort and the occasional hippo neighbour!

This small, no-frills, family-run lodge at the South Bank of the Nile offers comfortable mid-range accommodation designed to cater for a variety of guests. Due to the Murchison Falls National Park closing at 19h00 and the last river ferry crossing also being at that time, guests should ensure they arrive in time.

Accommodation includes four spacious and comfortable, open-plan, thatched cottages, each with four beds, en-suite bathrooms and a wide veranda overlooking the bush. The en-suite safari tents are in the bush, with three near the riverbank. All have twin beds. Note that there are no fans or air-conditioning. There are five camping tents around a large campsite area at the back of the property with communal facilities including a swimming pool.

River views from the large thatched roof the restaurant, bar and terrace are exceptional. Guests are invited to relax in hammocks, or on sofas around picnic tables in the bar and terrace area. Solar power is used throughout the property. Each evening, an outside fire is lit (with BBQs held on many nights), and guests can enjoy sundowners.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
