Paraa Safari Lodge


Be African royalty with Paraa Safari Lodge

Fashioning itself as the self-declared ‘Jewel of the Nile’, Paraa Safari Lodge is a veritable Ugandan institution thanks to its inception half a century ago; it has even welcomed the Queen Mother. Located inside Murchison Falls National Park and along the River Nile where ‘The African Queen’ starring Katharine Hepburn was set, guests can return to the era of old-world safari and glamour.

This park is one of Uganda’s oldest protected areas and the surrounding Conservation Area is the country’s largest. Despite being home to the 43m high Murchison Falls, we wouldn’t recommend taking a dip in these waters which happen to be home to the largest crocodile population in the country. Visitors will marvel at the 450 bird species, hippos, lions, sitatungas, elephants, and even leopard.

Accommodation at the lodge comes in several configurations, from their Standard Rooms and Safari Tents to their Suites. The most alluring of all of these, however, is the Queens Cottage where the Queen Mother stayed when visiting the country decades ago. While here, guests can enjoy land and water safaris, chimpanzee trekking, fishing, and bush breakfasts among other activities.



  • Murchison Falls is one of the strongest natural flows of water in the world
  • There are airstrips located nearby the lodge
  • Variety of room options to suit different types of travellers
  • A Ugandan institution that has hosted visitors such as the Queen Mother in what is now called the Queens Cottage
