Very comfortable lodge in Murchison Falls NP. Access by ferry with limited space. Need to book if in own 4x4. Only runs every 2 hours during daylight. Nice view across the countryside. Buffet style food but plenty of choice and good. Caters for large parties. Has Wi-Fi (which I hate to see at camps/parks as they should be peaceful and... More

This is a good place to stay as well as convenient to take a boat ride to Murchison Falls. I certainly didn't expect a lovely pool and swim up bar overlooking the Nile River. Our room was nicely situated with a partial view of the freeform pool and the hotel staff chasing away the baboons who were trying to visit... More

I was on a mission trip to Uganda with One City Ministries. We ended our journey by staying at this beautiful and magical lodge. When I first walked in I was greeted with overwhelming hospitality. The ride was hot and dusty. We were given cold soothing rags to wipe down while we waited to be checked in along with a... More

Think of great location for lodges. Paraa Lodge near Murchison Falls, Uganda is absolutely the best location for game viewing, etc. Reviewing the 14 day itinerary design by Gorilla Trek Africa , I questioned this particular lodge. After my stay there, I could see why this lodge was chosen. It had everything, plus game viewing very close to the lodge.... More

On our way through Uganda we slept here for two nights. You cannot ask for more!. The rooms are excellent and the food outstanding! It is situated in the Murchison Falls National Park which is at the moment one of the best parks I have been to. Lots of animals, lovey bush area. I believe the Total petroleum company of... More

The Lodge is located on a hill overlooking the Nile - it has a lovely pool and the breakfast and buffet dinner were excellent. The bedrooms are beginning to show their age and need refreshing but the staff were very helpful and courteous. The boat trip to Murchison Falls itself launches just down the hill from the Lodge and is... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Paraa Safari Lodge, but it was not in anyway luxurious compared to other places we stayed in Uganda. The room was comfortable, and had A/C which I was very happy for. At breakfast I heard others complaining they did have a/c or theirs did not work, and they slept poorly. The beds were comfortable,... More

Great trip with large family group and short notice booking. After 'Murchison River Lodge' totally blundered our booking, we called Paraa and crossed the river. Good food, nice staff, beautiful pool, all happy.

Paara lodge had the best food of the entire 2.5 week holiday in Uganda. Every evening was a great mix of Western, Ugandan and Indian food - a great selection for everyone! The waiting staff were excellent, the food was exquisite, though the front desk staff were average at best. We had an issue when we first arrived as the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Established in 1954, Paraa Safari Lodge is located in northwest Uganda in Murchison Falls National Park overlooking one of nature's best kept secrets, the River Nile. Paraa Safari Lodge offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation and adventure. Each of the rooms is a haven of style and serenity, complete with balcony and private bathroom. The safari decor of the lodges still reflects the bygone era of early explorers, enshrined with a modern touch. The luxurious pool overlooks the winding River Nile below, which was the setting for the classic Hollywood move, The African Queen". ... more   less
