The Jewel of the Nile is not a movie from the past but a present reality along the historic River Nile – the real Jewel of the Nile is a  Lodge called Paraa Safari Lodge which offers comfort, relaxation with rooms that have a view of the Nile, the second floor rooms affording the best views where you can see wildlife and birds right from your room.

There are various choices of rooms, the standard ones, luxury suites, and the secluded and exclusive “Queen’s Cottage” closer to the River Nile. There are also the upmarket tented cottages that you can choose from, and even there is the Standard Tent – nothing standard about it. And the deluxe Tents, all with bath.

Paraa Lodge can best be described as a Hotel in the Bush with a total 54 rooms, plus tents, however, one still feels like he is there all alone as one spends a night or two at Paraa Safari Lodge, it being the most affordable up-market Lodge in Murchison Falls Park.

The décor of the lodge will take you back to Ernest Hemingway and even the movie “The African Queen which was filmed nearby on the Nile. The Lodge has lovely African touches to it, and you will find it takes you back to another era of discoverers, adventure-seeking westerners that traveled to Murchison Falls and up or down on the River Nile.

What sets Paraa Safari Lodge apart from other lodges is one thing “Location.”  Paraa Safari Lodge is located on the side of the River Nile where you find most of the wildlife in Murchison Falls National Park.  Staying at Paraa Lodge means that you can have an early breakfast and go on a Game Drive by 7 am or go on a dawn game drive and return for breakfast afterward.

If you stay in a lodge across the river you cannot reach the game drives until around 7:30 am since the first ferry across the Nile does not cross until 7 am and it takes another 20 minutes to reach game tracks.  When it comes to choosing the Boat Ride up the River Nile, you can easily do so from Paraa lodge since you embark on a boat just below the lodge.

 Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner all are a delight at Paraa Safari Lodge and there is nothing like sitting on the veranda of the restaurant, a plate of food, a glass of refreshment and good company overlooking the Nile and the vast expanse of the park – times of refreshing in the African Wild at Paraa Safari Lodge.  Paraa Lodge even offers a privately catered Bush Breakfast for clients staying at Paraa Lodge at an extra cost.
