Paraa Safari Lodge is a solid choice for an accommodation at Murchison Falls National Park. It is an older property but it is also a comfortable place to stay.
Beautiful view overlooking the Nile River
Nice pool with a swim-up bar (overlooking the Nile River)
Decent selection of Ugandan, Indian, and British cuisine at the buffet restaurant
Very inexpensive (and quick) laundry service
WiFi (not turned on until 8am, which is noticed when one has an early morning safari departure)
Not all of the rooms have air conditioning (ceiling fans were adequate, though)
Not all of the rooms have televisions
Service in the restaurant could have been better. My friends and I ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter forgot about us. When we got his attention, it appeared that he did not know how to open a bottle of wine.
