Perched overlooking the Victoria Nile, a thatch and wood build, the Nile Safari Lodge includes a main lodge and eight bandas. The views of the river, surrounding grasslands and wildlife are stunning.
With communal luxuries such as outdoor wooden verandas with comfortable seating, an infinity pool, a fire pit, intimate dining areas and stylish bars, the main lodge is wonderfully comfortable. Its low-key and environmentally conscious approach to the business of creating a lodge merges seamlessly with the surrounding habitat; a fine example of what can be done by way of on-the-ground sustainable tourism. Thus, the surrounding habitats allow for the natural surroundings to take centre stage.
Food & service
The service at Nile Safari Lodge – from restaurant floor to room care to guide – is friendly and very much hands-on, while both the food and drink are of the highest quality, with chefs catering to all dietary requests and vegetables sourced from the lodge’s garden.
Just as fine, the sleeping rooms at Nile Safari Lodge comprise a mix of luxury bandas, all of which have en-suite facilities with both indoor and outdoor showers, a mini-fridge and a private deck. Beautiful wooden décor and grand double beds are typical. Characterised by creative and purposely simple designs, each has its own unique style, and offers a very private stay. Wi-Fi has also been recently installed across the lodge. An Exclusive Banda is available, and offers a private plunge pool and star bed for guests.
Activities at Nile Safari Lodge include boat trips, treks through rainforests, fishing, bird watching, cultural and historical visits, and wildlife drives through the national park.
