What an amazing place ! Stayed here a few days. Went on a game drive in the giraffe vehicle. Saw loads of wildlife eg elephants, giraffes, lions. Scenery fantastic. Red chilli is budget level as expected but staff were friendly, food was great and the place was clean. Great views from the camp. Sam did fire spinning in the evening...

We stayed here as part of our amazing trip to Uganda. We chose it so we could have quick and easy access to safaris and be inside the Park and close to nature. This is budget accommodation and we weren't expecting luxury but it is clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and anxious to please and gave us...

When we arrived there was a mix up with the group booking we had. It took ages to sort out - apparently they hadn't received payment when the rooms had been booked a month before and money had left our account. The staff were only interested in helping when there was money to be made i.e buying food and drinks...

Dear BX88 I am so sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us in Murchison. As regards your booking, because of so many no-shows, we are unable to confirm bookings without receipt of a 50% deposit into our account. I think payment up-front before a booking is confirmed is fairly standard in most hotels and hostels these...

We arrived and the Person we'd spoken to in kla had not made our booking👎 However,we were given accommodation👍. Website is that there's hot water for showering. Doesn't say one has to pay 3k for it👎.

Dear nabatanzie I am sorry you were disappointed by your experience at Red Chilli in Murchison and that there was a problem with your booking. We are no longer accepting telephone bookings to stop problems such as this one occurring in the future and to enable a clear chain of communication. I am the owner of Red Chilli and I...

The place has a beautiful view upon the nile, the safari tents are confortable with good beds. Maybe power would be nice just to be able to turn on some light at night. Other than that, food is decent and cleanliness of the common bathrooms as well.

Dear Viviane W I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed our Rest Camp at Murchison - particularly our restaurant and the overall cleanliness. The safari tents are equipped with paraffin lights only but there is lighting in all of the bandas and power sockets in the ensuite accommodation. We are looking to providing some solar lights for the...

This somewhat cramped Rest Camp my be okay if you use their Bandas or Safari tents, but definitely not if you come with your own tent, rooftop or not. There is no shade nor any privacy provided. There are much better options for camping just a few Km away, outside the park.

Dear barbaraglobetrotting Thanks very much for the review. I am sorry you found the Rest Camp cramped - we have been extremely busy at the moment but business really does vary throughout the year. The good news is we are taking over some new land from the 1st April 2017, just close by to the ablution block which will allow...

The service at redchilli was terrible, lack of flexibility, poor customer service,terrible treatment of local Ugandans including children, despicable, i guess for the cost, that is what locals should expect, really unfortunate that its the only low cost accommodation in the area, the tents were nice though, generally i was appalled by the whole experience.

I stayed here as part of a stay in Murchison organised by Red Chilli. The camp offers tents and bandas and the comfort level is quite acceptable for a couple of nights in the National Park. Murchison is unforgettable and I can't recommend it highly enough. The camp has a nice bar/restaurant with views of the Nile. Watching the sun...

For the adventure seeker who wants to spend a night close to nature under the open African sky you may choose to use the tent or a Banda. Dont venture too far out at night without light or you stumble upon a hippo or a warthog. A boat ride at 2.00pm is a must taking you to the bottom of...

The Red Chilli is minutes from the ferry across the Nile to the game drives in the Murchison National Park. I stayed in a Banda and loved it, but you should go into this place with the right attitude. It's more like a camping trip than a luxury experience - but it is a great experience! Wart hogs and baboons...

Dear JoyceAna Many thanks for taking the time to provide such helpful, detail feedback for other potential guests at Red Chilli! Sadly we have been having real problems with water of late: because of a lack of water on site we are reliant on Uganda Wildlife Authority to provide water for the camp via their 2 boreholes.
