Family owned Murchison River Lodge offers comfortable mid-range accommodation for families, couples, groups and individuals. The lodge has been thoughtfully created to give every guest, no matter their budget or itinerary, a place where they can relax by the River Nile.

The main lodge area comprises a bar and restaurant and sits on a raised bank providing unrivalled panoramic views of the magical River Nile and Murchison Falls National Park. Our thatched cottages and shaded campsite are all positioned within the bush, yet some of our thatched safari tents are located towards the water where the sound of hippos is as regular as your heart beat.

We encourage the philosophy ‘think global, act local’ which is reflected in the number of staff employed from the local area who run the various lodge departments. Almost all of them had never worked in the hotel sector before, but with encouragement and enthusiasm we have a proud team of young men and women who, with the support of our managers, will make sure your stay at Murchison River Lodge is a great one.

Of course we do not wish anyone to be disappointed, so please be aware that mobile phone networks can be erratic.  We also do not have credit card facilities, air conditioning and due to our remote location there is no a la carte menu. However if you appreciate solar power, nature at its best, home cooked meals, our pool lounge for wifi, a friendly face and a welcoming environment for anyone travelling with children, then please contact us for more information.
