GeoLodges Nile Safari Lodge
Location: Bordering Murchison Falls National Park
Set amid papyrus forests on the banks of the River Nile, Nile Safari Lodge offers luxurious accommodation in Uganda’s largest national park. The wooden chalets and luxury tents all have private balconies suspended over the mighty river, maximizing stunning views and giving a true feeling of wild Africa. Weaver nests occupy overhanging trees, vervet monkeys leap from branch to roof, and hippos snort with contentment.
Nile Safari Lodge brings you closer to nature without damaging the environment, allowing our guests to co-exist peacefully with the region´s natural inhabitants, without air conditioning or barriers to wildlife. The secluded pool offers the best reprieve from the equatorial sun after a day of activities. At dusk, we invite you to enjoy our open fireplace – perfect for stargazing, bird watching, and enjoying a chilled sundowner.
We hope to instill a love and enthusiasm for this exceptionally beautiful area which will stay with you forever!
