Paraa Safari Lodge is a beautiful luxury 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 guests 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 colourful and lend to an amazing opportunity for bird watchers with over 451 species found in the area.
The lodge itself is well-appointed with a total of 54 warm and inviting rooms. Guests have a choice of standard single, double or twin room, suites or a cottage. All accommodation is comfortably furnished and provides guests with an en-suite bathroom and a charming balcony to take in the view. Standard rooms possess traditional safari colours and tiled floors, with fans to stay cool and views over the lodge pool. The cottage is spacious, holds wonderful vistas and elegant decor while the suites provide more space than standard rooms and large panoramic windows.
In the lodge's main area guests can expect delicious cuisine from the Captain's Table restaurant, with an array of international and local fare on offer. In room dining is an option should guests wish for a greater level of privacy.
Paraa Safari Lodge is anything from 6 - 8 hour's drive from Entebbe / Kampala depending on departure point and road conditions.
Game drives, birding, bush breakfasts, fishing, boat trips to the delta, nature walks, and visits to Murchison Falls.
Read what our previous clients thought of Paraa Safari Lodge
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.
Just lovely - would not change a thing about Paraa.
