Paraa Safari Lodge

Location: Murchison Falls National Park

Established in 1954, Paraa Safari Lodge is in Murchison Falls National Park, on the banks of the mighty River Nile. The Lodge offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation and adventure.

There is a choice of fine dining, and the Explorer’s bar is the ideal watering hole after a day of wildlife discovery in Murchison Falls National Park. The luxurious pool overlooks the winding river below.

Set in an area of landscaped gardens, the safari décor of the lodge still reflects the bygone era of early explorers, enshrined with a modern touch.
Enjoy a variety of excursions and activities; from exhilarating Safari drives to boat trips along the River Nile, ending at the foot of Murchison Falls. For the more adventurous, one can trek up to the top of the falls and marvel at the views through the mist. A variety of ecosystems and an impressive 451 species of birds awaits you here…
