It's has a fabulous setting and room is lovely with a nice balcony. Shower place is little congested and has no hand shower or a tap. I loved their pool set up. They don't have much choice in the menu card but buffet was good. We were able to get good vegetarian food mix of continental, Indian and African cuisine....

This is an upscale hotel that spares non of the amenities of Western travel - except no wifi in the rooms. It's comical to see 15 people huddled in the lobby around their phones, where the only wifi is, while there are warthogs just outside the door eating. Neither notices the other. Rooms are clean, comfortable, A/C works fine, mosquito...

Overlooking the Nile River is awe-inspiring. Staff graciousness is stellar. Dining options are extensive. Room is lovely. BUT. . . a swim-up bar in Uganda? Everyone on their iPhones? Leave that for Cancun travelers! Paraa Lodge was our final stay during a two-week Ugandan trek and possibly designed for re-entry to the Western world. Just not ready. Thoroughly enjoyed our...

A very nice place, with confort and easy access to the most importants activities in Murchison Falls National Park. A friendly place along the great Nile river just a few km from the lovely falls, game drives, delta nile and lake Albert. The staff is friendly and attent to clients... You shall try.

Lovely lodge just over the Nile, the right side for game safaris. Large, comfortable rooms. Service in restaurant very slow, so leave plenty of time. We traveled with Churchill safaris, who were an excellent company. Lovely pool at the lodge.

We were greeted at checkin with cold, wet cloths to wipe away the heat and dirt. This was followed by fresh mango juice. What a wonderful welcome! The lodge is over 50 years old but well maintained. The rooms are air conditioned but ours wasn't on, which left us sweltering for an hour before it was cool. Unfortunately, the dining...

I am writing in response to the review entitled “Too Bad”. We analyse any issues of dissatisfaction with our food seriously as this gives us a good understanding of areas that need improvement and this review raises a few points. Firstly we did not have a buffet on Saturday the 7th March, it was a set menu. The guests ordered...
