Paraa Safari Lodge

Paraa Safari Lodge is a beautiful property that overlooks the world's longest river: the mighty Nile. Placed between the river's source at Lake Victoria and its next stop at Lake Albert, Paraa Safari Lodge offers the chance to witness the majesty of the Nile thundering through a gorge in the rock 6 meters wide before plunging some 141ft below to create the mighty Murchison Falls. With the lodge located in the Murchison Falls National Park it is the only place to see all Big 5. The ecosystems here are varied and colorful and lend to an amazing opportunity for bird watchers with over 451 species found in the area.

Review of Paraa Safari Lodge

Anke Korthauer

Staff was nice and the Room as well. Due the Christmas Season the Hotel was fully out booked and very, very loud. I would have preferred a smaller Place with less Tourist Groups.

Review of Paraa Safari Lodge

Robert & Katharine McClenathan

Uninspiring decor, motel-like layout, dated furnishings, and lackluster service meant that the only thing going for this lodge was its location. And I don't want to understate that the location was excellent in that the lodge is on the side of the Nile that permits game drive departures and returns without the limitation of the ferry schedule. This was very important.
