We stayed at safari tent for two nights on 26th and 27th June. The tent was comfortable, ensuite bathroom, running hot water supplied by solar heaters. The entire facility is very well managed. The staff are courteous and the food is good. I highly recommend this place for Murchison NP safari. Wifi and charging facilities available at the pool and... More

Beautiful location, views and room. The food is absolutely to die for and service is outstanding. Pool area nice to relax around in but beware of the monkeys. At night you sometimes hear the hippos. Just a warning that drink prices are a little more expensive than other places and they charge in American dollar.

Stunning location, fab views, great service, perfect for our kids aged 11,9 and 7. Food was great and they have thoughtfully included the options of early breakfasts, packed lunches and early dinners for kids if required. Great mid range accommodation. We just loved our stay. Highly recommend.

Love this Lodge. Great facilities... excellent location for basing yourself to explore the national park. Comfortable rooms, good food, wifi and pool..... love the art work too! We had tents by the river... very comfortable. Enjoyed the food and were sent off with a great picnic. Lodge is popular and great value.

We recently stayed here for 2 nights on a trip with Prime Safaris. This place is lovely with beautiful views and very close to the park. It has excellent food. The only con was that the tents are made of plastic and never cooled down at night which made it uncomfortable to sleep. Fans would be a pleasant addition. Otherwise-... More

Murchison River Lodge has what it takes to relax after a game drive or boat trip. Tented huts are comfortable and have all that you need. Restaurant is a good place to sit down for a beer without great view on the Nile and barking hippo's in the distance (or close to the tent) and food is very nice. Staff... More

We went camping for 3 nights in this lodge just outside the park. The setting is amazing, you camp a few hundred meters from the main lodge on a separate grass area, overlook the Nile. We chose "full board" camping, where we used the campsite and our own tent, but had the food at the lodge. I love it when... More

As an old Africa hand (brought up in Tanzania), I had high expectations of the Lodge. I'm pleased to say they were completely realised. I felt very much at home there with the bush location by the Nile, great accommodation and central facilities' building styles, friendly staff, simple but excellent food and the great chats with the managers Chris and...

We had the best time ever staying at Murchison River Lodge and cannot recommend more highly. Perfectly positioned on the Victoria Nile next to Murchison Falls National Park, we stayed in a lovely thatched safari tent, having fun each night listening out for the hippos down on the banks. A comfy big bed and great shower, the accommodation was perfect... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. We were in one of the tented lodges which was compact but very nice.The shower was good with lots of hot water. The bed was covered with a net to keep the bugs out and we also had a few creatures like geckos and frog to look after the bugs. The food was very good... More
