About

#5 of 15 Specialty lodging in Murchison Falls National Park
Travelers' Choice
Nile Safari Lodge has an iconic reputation due to its unique location in one of the most beautiful settings in Africa. It is here that the mighty River Nile takes centre stage. The lodge allows unhindered views of wild Africa at its most magnificent. Built on an elevated rise on the banks of the River Nile, Nile Safari Lodge surrounds you with the Africa as you always dreamed of. Herds of elephant, hippopotamus, crocodile and other large mammals are regularly sighted from the lodge, as the Nile flows majestically by. The lodge is also famous for its bird life, and is one of the few places from which the elusive shoebill stork can be spotted. While Murchison Falls National Park provides you with exciting animal and nature encounters, Nile Safari Lodge extends this experience with down to earth hospitality. Under new ownership of NOVAM Ltd, as of January 1st 2018

The Nile safari lodge is a very special treat for a couple’s getaway. We were spoiled from the room with an unique view on the Nile to the food. The astonishing woody setting of the restaurant and the bar next to an infinity pool that seems to cascade in the river makes the common place highly pleasant. We loved having a last glass of wine, after a fresh and delicate meal, next to the log fire. Our spacious and elegant room gave us the impression to stay in paradise. We also appreciated the fact that everything is sustainable from the straw we used to sip our cocktails to the cosmetic products available in our bathroom. Here, no detail is left to chance. Plus, all staff are more than willing to help with anything you might need. In terms of activities, the game drive and the balloon ride over the Murchison National Park were the highlights of our trip. They also go above and beyond expectations, we saw the big five and many more animals. During our stay, we also got the chance to see the most powerful waterfall in the world by boat and by walking. Overall, our five days stay has raised our expectations of future destinations. To the greatest extent possible, we will definitely come back again as this experience was unforgettable.

We loved everything about our 4-day stay at Nile Safari Lodge. Like all of the rooms, our room overlooked the Nile just a few feet from the river. The lodge and bandas are lovely. The location is convenient to all of the major sights,e.g., the falls, the river cruises and the game drives. There is a lot of wildlife in the park. We saw 3 leapards on our first day. The food was outstanding. Since all activities are outside and we interacted with only a few people, the covid risk is minimal.

This is the best place I've ever had the pleasure of staying during my 50 years on this Earth. It is gorgeous. The rooms are visually stunning with amazing Nile River views. A shy hippo kept camp below our balcony in the river below, grunting quietly below every night as we took evening coffee outside. The showers were amazing, indoor and out! The bed was huge and so comfortable. But the shining star of this place is the staff....My family and I felt like celebrities while there....passion fruit waiting for us each time we came back from a safari drive, impeccable table service, 4 course dinners that were amazing. They built nightly camp fires for us, set us up in a different part of the lodge for dinner every night so we could experience the entire property. Every need or want we had was met before we even had to ask. Great with covid procedures too. I am still thinking about this place 2 weeks after we've been back in the US. Being treated like queens and kings will do that to you. Would love to go back, if just for this lodge!

Beautiful lodge on the Nile. Out back patio was literally 10 meters from the water's edge with a plunge pool and an outdoor sleeping area (in addition to a king size bed inside the room). Dining area was next to a very nice pool and an even better view of the Nile. Food and service were both excellent.
