A lovely place to stay when visiting Murchison Falls National Park. It is a short drive from both the Falls and the ferry crossing to the delta area for the best wildlife.

Our room was spacious with a large comfortable bed and nice en suite facilities. You have to be escorted to and from the room as hippos wander around the grounds and we were lucky enough to watch one feeding just feet away from our deck. It is wonderfully peaceful and the only sound you are likely to hear is the hippos munching away.

The food was excellent and presented with great care. You can see that they pay attention to the small details. The restaurant offers views onto the Nile and gardens and offers a nice area to relax.

Thanks for a very pleasant stay.

We arrived late to the lodge and left early...so not a long experience to review. Overall a good place to stay. The dinner and service were very good, as was our early breakfast and box lunch. The room was nice...sparsely furnished but perfectly fine. As with other reviews, I'd agree that fans would be a good addition due to the hot temps. Would have made for a better nights sleep. The setting is lovely and the overall experience is good. I stayed at many similar lodges in Uganda during the trip and this one was a bit below the quality of the others but still a good experience.

This lodge is in a lovely setting on the banks of the Nile, with wonderful views of the river. We were the only guests and had excellent and very attentive service, and the food was fine. The rooms are spacious and water in the showers is hot (which was not the case in many lodges). I would not agree with some of the criticisms in recent reviews. We had comfortable chairs on our balcony, and although wi-fi is only available in the restaurant area, this is the case with all the lodges, it was good wi-fi. The bed was comfortable, and although the room was very hot the day we arrived as it was 40C, fortunately a thunderstorm that night lowered the temperature. However, as it does get very hot in this area the absence of fans could be a real problem.

Kabalega Wilderness Lodge is a nice place. It has great potential to be way better than what is presently on offer and that is why I scored it average. While rooms are spacious, the lack of fans made it not a very pleasant experience indoors, especially with the average temperature in Uganda. That is a major thing the management should look into - put fans in those rooms and your ratings will shoot up. There were a few other shortcomings like USB sockets not working in some room and Wi-Fi only accessible at the restaurants and not in the rooms. Also, ice was not available...

Staff were friendly and helpful - especially the cute young lady, Enid. We stayed two nights and I wouldn't say we missed much - except Enid's charm. All in all not a bad place and I believe major changes would have taken place in a couple of months.

On arrival at the lodge did our group find the reception, part of the main building also housing the bar, lounge and dining, prepared for us. Rooms were swiftly allocated and then a briefing given about the do's and don'ts especially walking after dark to and from the rooms. Hippos and other game wander through the open lodge compound after dark so having the night guards escort one to and from dinner is absolutely a must.
Sensibly did Enid, who briefed us and later served our dinner, also ask for any food allergies and preferences which resulted in two vegetarian meals being ordered.
The rooms were large with a canvas front and net 'windows' in the direction of the river but at half past six in the evening the room was simply too hot even when keeping the main door open. The lack of a fan in the room proved a challenge throughout my stay, for others in my group too and the mattress and pillows were too warm for comfort.
Other than that were the rooms and bathrooms functional and fully furnished. While the USB charging port did not work and could not be made to work during my two nights stay - the inverter had a problem - was a conventional socket absent resulting in having to charge batteries at the reception / bar area.
Notably was there no light over the main bathroom mirror but strangely behind it over the extra large twin bath tub, a nice touch but who wants a hot bath in that heat, unless it were to be a cold bath to cool down.
During the first night both taps, hot and cold, brought out steaming hot water but that was fixed by one of the staff the next day. Don't ask where I got the water from to rinse my hair after suddenly the water turned way too hot from the shower head to tolerate.
Being near the river, and having a pump to supply water to the lodge, I would personally water the grass in the immediate surrounding area of the main building to enhance the appearance, instead of letting the grass wither and make way for dust.
The food was a pleasant surprise, as was the service for lunch and dinner both days and Enid made friends with us all. The bar was poorly stocked with no soda water and very limited soft drink choices.
If only a little thought and hospitality experience could be injected into the Kabalega Wilderness Lodge, it would be a good middle priced option where to stay, just outside the main park boundary.
Finally there was free WiFi in the main building area of the lodge but not in any of the cottages.
Fix those few issues mentioned and I would come back for another stay and raise the ranking from average to good.
