Arrive at Pakuba Lodge for lunch.
Pakuba Lodge – Moderately Priced
Pakuba Lodge is a popular destination for wildlife enthusiasts in Murchison Falls National Park. It is located on the east bank of the Albert Nile and is isolated from other lodge locations. From your balcony, you can witness various wildlife, including giraffes, Uganda kobs, leopards, and other animals that often roam around the lodge area.
Your room at Pakuba Lodge is spacious and equipped with air conditioning. You can choose between a king-size bed or twin beds. All rooms have private bathrooms. The lodge offers delicious meals served in a dining area, and there’s even a swimming pool where you can relax and unwind after the drive from Kampala or Entebbe.
The main highlight of Pakuba Lodge is its proximity to wildlife. It is the closest lodge to the Buligi circuit, and it only takes 45 minutes to reach the starting point of the Boat Cruise. According to the Bradt Guide to Uganda, while there may be more stylish and upscale options in Murchison Falls, Pakuba Lodge provides excellent value and lets you be right in the heart of the wildlife action.
Afternoon Boat Cruise on the Nile:
One of the most exciting highlights of your safari is the boat cruise, which is not just any boat cruise—it takes place on the historic Nile River. During the cruise, you can witness various wildlife, including pods of hippos, sun-basking Nile crocodiles, monitor lizards, herds of elephants, groups of buffaloes, and many water birds.
Many visitors consider this boat cruise the best wildlife experience in Uganda. It offers many wildlife sightings, from Paraa to the bottom of the falls. Even former President Idi Amin used to navigate this section of the Nile on his boat.
The boat cruise holds historical significance as well. Sir Samuel and Lady Florence Baker, the first Westerners to witness the world’s most powerful waterfall, had their boat capsized by a hippo as they approached the falls. The location was also featured in filming the movie “African Queen,” starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in 1951.
Upon reaching the bottom of the falls, you can either stay on the boat for the return trip or hike to the top. The choice is yours to make.
Top of the Falls Hike:
Above the falls, you see how wide they are, and on the descent down the Western Rift escarpments. It pours through a six-meter-wide cauldron. You will be amazed by the sights, sounds, and mist.
Near here, Ernest Hemingway crash-landed in 1954 and was given up as dead, only to be rescued by a tourist boat launch.
A few years back, someone came up with the idea of building a dam. However, there was such an uproar from conservationists and the tourism industry that it quietly faded away.
Your driver-guide will meet you here and return to the Pakuba Safar Lodge, where you can relax and chill out before dinner.
