I stayed at the Paraa Lodge for two nights as part of a trip to Uganda and Rwanda. The lodge is in a very nice location, across the river, in the north part of the Murchison Falls Park. It can be reached with a small (car also) ferry. Common areas are nice, with an old colonial style, but not of... More

We spent less than 24 hours at the lodge, but it was a good experience. It was a big, old fashioned kind of building and service, but all very well done and up to date. We were in an economy room which was spacious and well appointed, but no AC. A fan over the bed was ok for the night.... More

I immensely enjoyed our stay at Paraa. The staff were very helpful, especially George our driver/guide he was very knowledgeable about the area and the animals. The view is spectacular. Made me really appreciate and proud to be Ugandan! I highly recommend it. Oh and splendid banana pudding! Overall one of my hotels i have stayed at.

We were unsure of which of the many Murchison lodges to stay at but are really glad we chose Paraa lodge for our 2 night stay. It still has echoes of the original lodge that was built here and the views are spectacular. Lovely grounds and pool. Very comfy room with a nice balcony. Check in was not exactly smooth... More

The Paraa Lodge is a very good hotel! I would not consider this a lodge, with that many rooms. To us the food/buffet was a bit of a let-down, and would have preferred a more individual service. However, the food in the buffet was good, the staff accomodating and the rooms are clean and quite nice, especially the deluxe rooms... More

Our trip to Murchison Falls National Park followed a week in another area of northern Uganda and did not disappoint us. Paraa Lodge appears to be undergoing some renovations, but these did not interfere in any way with our stay. We booked a suite and were very happy and comfortable. The view was great and the room had everything we... More

First the good - the lodge is beautiful and filled with the atmosphere of Murchison Falls. We were there on a Saturday and Sunday night. Sunday was peaceful and relaxing. Then the ok- Service tries hard, but patience is required when ordering anything special (white wine vs. red!). On Saturday night, the place was hopping -- loud singing and dancing!... More
