I had a wonderful experience of the Murchison Falls when I stayed at Paraa Safari Lodge. The hotel has very good rooms, excellent food and the staff are always helpful. I plan to visit this place many times to come..

We have been coming to Paraa lodge after a medical mission trip in the north for many years. We always make arrangements ahead of time. This year they said they did not get the reservations because I did not pay first. I have never sent payment in advance because of concerns with security. However they were very nice and Jennifer...

I wanted to visit Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda for birding and after seeing positive reviews, I ended up staying at the Paraa Safari lodge. I loved it! The rooms were nice and I have a room overlooking the Nile. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on- they should sell those beds to...

There are really too many good things to say about the Paraa lodge. The food and staff may be the best two things. Both are outstanding! Only reason I didn't rate it higher is the incredibly high price. If you can afford it, it is well worth the stay!

I have been to Paraa twice and love it. The rooms are lovely, the food is great, the River trip is my favorite. Heartily recommend it. We took two game drives with an experienced guide and saw a full array of animals despite the brevity of our stay (two nights). I think that two nights is all you need to...

Location, location, location. This place is one of only two places in the northern part of the park where there are large animals. This means you don't have to cross the river (9 USD each way) to do the rides early in the morning (first crossing is at 6am, last at 7 pm every 2 hours more or less). This...

We arrive just to reach dinner, and in the Landcruiser at 06.00 next morning, so it was to much pay for a good night sleep.

I loved Murchison Falls National Park and this was the perfect place to stay. Great food, friendly staff, very good rooms and perfect location. I hope I get the chance to return here for longer than the two nights I stayed on this occasion. Perfect.
