Chobe Safari Lodge–Murchison Falls Park– 5-Star Luxury in African Bush
The Gem on the River Nile – The Luxury Chobe Safari Lodge – Uganda
The Luxury Chobe Safari Lodge, a 5-Star resort on the ancient River Nile in Murchison Falls Park, is one of the closest Luxury Wildlife Lodges to Kampala and Entebbe. Chobe Safari Lodge is one of those right lodging choices for a Safari that includes Murchison Falls National Park.
Chobe Safari Lodge was a “Must Visit Destination Lodges” in the 1950s and 1960s when tourists flocked for the wildlife and the fishing in the River Nile. Then came Uganda’s Turbulent Days, including when harsh winds blew across the country during which the Lodge was abandoned.
Better days came in 1986 under the Leadership of President Museveni. Eventually, Chobe Safari Lodge rose like a Phoenix from the ashes and once again became a “Gem on the Nile.” The Lodge, with its one-of-a-kind panoramic views of the Nile and the sounds of rushing water from the rapids, is the setting of your adventure in this undiscovered portion of Murchison National Park.
The Luxury Chobe Safari Lodge has magnificent and sweeping views, three-tier Infinity Swimming, its Spa, Gym, Restaurant, and Bar,36 elegant guest rooms, 21 luxury tents, four suites, a Presidential cottage, and the Florence Baker Family Cottage offers something to most anyone.
Chobe Safari Lodge became the Lodge of Choice in Uganda for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on a Recording Safari with their daughter, friends, and business associates.
The Lodge is the choice of Presidents, but more importantly, it wins hands down with kids on a Family Safari. They think Chobe Safari is the most “Kid-Friendly Lodge in Uganda.
Chobe Safari Lodge offers a unique opportunity to sample the wildlife, birds, flora, and fauna, all in an area of the park that has yet to be discovered. This Murchison Falls National Park area is ideal for fishing and will revive. This is one of the best Nile Perch Fishing destinations in Africa near Karuma Falls.
The location of the Lodge is one of the reasons that we often choose the Lodge for our Clients. From here, it is a short drive to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and a shorter drive-time to Kampala and Entebbe.
We suggest combining a stay at Chobe Safari Lodge with time at Paraaa Safari Lodge, the sister Lodge below Murchison Falls on the Albert Nile, a great combination.
While staying at Chobe Safari Lodge, you never know who you will meet; President Museveni might stop by at your table while you have Lunch.
