Distance from Kampala: 301km, approximately 5hrs, and 40mins.

Situated on the southern bank of the River Nile in Uganda’s largest National Park, offers comfortable and relaxing mid-range accommodation. En suite thatched cottages and thatched safari tents. If you prefer to pitch your own tent, covered areas for self-catering in the campsite are available including a fire pit, excellent showers, and toilet facilities.

From the vantage point of the lodge bar, restaurant, and swimming pool, you are treated to panoramic views of the park and the River Nile as it flows downstream between papyrus islands and schools of hippos. Although completely off-grid, the concept and design of Murchison River Lodge encourage gentle engagement with nature without compromising on comfort.

Distance from Kampala; 296km, approximately 4hrs& 55mins.

This is located within the park on the southern bank of the River Nile, 500m from the ferry crossing point, boat cruises to the Delta, and bottom of the falls. At the camp, you can view some game like the warthogs and hippos.

It is commonly referred to as the "financial plan" camp as it caters for budget travelers.  It is the only low to mid-budget accommodation in the park - furnished safari tents and bands with public or private bathrooms. It also includes camping facilities with modern showers and toilets, and a cooking area and security lighting. The camp provides an authentic safari experience at a really great price!


There is a fully stocked bar & restaurant below an open thatched roof with spectacular views of the Nile. A BBQ area too, for self-catering guests, and an evening campfire.

With absolutely no wifi, guests are charmingly forced to sit around the fire and chat about your safari instead!
