What an amazing place!!! Wow! Could not ask for better service from the food to the room and the safari tour guide - all staff were helpful and friendly. The scenery is beautiful! Only stayed one night but would recommend staying two (or more). Saw lots of wildlife on the safari and boat cruise. Make sure you have a camera...

Great boat rides too for sites and sounds of different bird species, hippopotamus, crocodiles, water bug and more! Well Chobe set high expectations for Paraa. It felt like I was comparing the Serena and Grand Imperial and cancelled my plans to spend the night after the lengthy beautiful game drive and nasty UWA officials at the gates. Paraa's food and...

The Paraa has wonderful views over nile and is in a perfect position to explore Murchison. The staff and fantastic and the food is good, the only thing that lets it down is the rooms which are well overdue a refurbishment. It is a real shame as the hotel could be stunning, but is really just average.

We were in a standard room in front of the swimming pool. Cleaned, comfortable bed and nice bathroom. It is a very good starting...

We arrived at Paraa Lodge with 50 mins to spare before we had to jump on the Falls Cruise. The lady at reception was friendly and helpful and pointed us straight out to the 'snack' bar at the swimming pool. The bar tender promised we would have our lunch in 15 minutes and he did not disappoint. My mum had...

Fancy place to stay. Good location near the Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda. Comfortable place. Well prepared and good variety of food. Can stroll down for a photo session. Swimming pool available but may feel a bit cold in some weather.

The accommodation is beautiful, the staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds surrounding the lodge were also stunning, so much wildlife on your door step. The food was very good as was the cleanliness. I have no complaints what so ever and would highly recommend Paraa Safari Lodge
