Paraa Safari Lodge was established in 1954 and is located within the Murchison Falls National Park. Perfectly situated in the north-western region of Uganda overlooking one of nature’s best-kept secrets, the River Nile. The river journeys from its source at Lake Victoria to join Lake Albert – here it is suddenly channelled into a gorge only six meters wide and cascades 43 meters below.
The earth literally trembles at Murchison Falls - one of the world's most powerful flows of natural water. Paraa Safari Lodge offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation and adventure. Each of the rooms is a haven of style and serenity, complete with a balcony and private bathroom.
The lodge is set in an area of landscaped gardens, the lodge recreates a mood that has become associated with famous explorers of East Africa. Paraa Safari Lodge offers a choice of fine dining throughout one’s stay, and the Explorer’s bar is the ideal watering hole after a day of wildlife discovery in Murchison Falls National Park.
The cuisine is a culinary adventure! Select items from a mouth-watering menu of local and international specialities produced by experienced chefs. The Captain’s Table restaurant is located on the upper floor of the main area. Guests have the choice to eat inside or outside on the balcony, which boasts a sweeping view of the natural surrounds.

Spanning an impressive 350,000 hectares, it will come as no surprise that Murchison Falls National Park is Uganda’s largest wildlife reserve – but that’s not all this veritable Eden has to offer. Four of the Big 5 roam about and sip at the edge of the Victoria Nile whose waters eventually burst through a narrow rock face in a potent torrent and drop down a steep cliff before reaching the bottom in a frothy fury. Welcome to Murchison Falls!
Along with Bugungu Wildlife Reserve and Karuma Wildlife Reserve, the park forms part of the greater Murchison Falls Conservation Area in north-west Uganda. Often known as the Kabalega Falls (after a great Bunyoro chief), delta cruises along papyrus-lined waterways are the highlight of the trip. Whether seen from the top of the falls or the Devil’s Cauldron, its intimidating base, Murchison Falls promises striking vistas from whichever vantage point.
The park’s 450 species of birdlife and plethora of wildlife (including the country’s largest population of crocodile) can be spotted on hikes, cruises along the Victoria Nile, and game drives. Visitors can also enjoy cultural encounters with the local community and sports fishing. Accommodation options in the park include campsites, lodges, hotels, and guesthouses.
