The Murchison River Lodge positioned on the southern bank of the famous Nile River presents itself as a perfect midrange accommodation facility that travelers on safaris in Uganda can rest for overnight while visiting the park.
Surrounded by a dense savannah thicket overlooking the Nile River as it
approaches the delta, the Murchison River Lodge features accommodation
in a range of categories that caters for varying preferences of
travelers on Uganda safaris.
The top on the list of the accommodation options are the Thatched
Cottages that count to four in number presenting a spacious, comfortable
and attractive furnishing that make each cottage unique. The Thatched
Cottages feature an open plan that has a double bed up stairs fixed on a

to enjoy the views of the wilderness. The families can utilize these

hot water and the children’s stair gate are provided in the thatched

Another accommodation option is Thatched
Safari Tent where tents are placed on the ground with a thatch roof and
overlook the Nile. They are furnished featuring safari table and chairs
