What Our Clients Say

  • star rating  Amazing first-class service in a rustic setting. Rooms were very spacious, with hot water and AC. The food at all the meals was delicious. They do shut the electricity to the rooms during the day from 8am until 6pm, but that wasn’t a problem for us since we were out on game drives and Nile River boat cruises. Highly recommended.

  • star rating  The location cant be faulted, and the staff was kind, but it was a not a place I took much pleasure staying at.

    The buildings reminded me of baracks from the outside, even though inside they were nice enough and with a/c.

    Our room was sort of dark, and there was no electricity until close to darkness.

    In spite of the location next to the Nile, there was no view from the room or the dining area.

    Nice view from front yard and reception area.

    I read so many nice things about the food, and the chicken the first night was really good, otherwise I thought it standard.

    We had lunch there one of the days and must have come too late, there was not much to choose from, and what there was had gotten quite cold.

  • star rating  Stayed in Pakuba for 3 days with friends for a short safari. Had an amazing stay with welcoming staff, who were always there to assist. Particularly Ambrose who always greeted us with smile and went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. Chef always provided a Great variety of food and took pride too. The WiFi is only available in the reception but to be fair, there are far better things to see and do, than scroll on the phone!

  • star rating  So many positive things to say about this lodge. I am recommending to everyone I speak to about my trip. In fact, I cannot wait to save up some funds to stay at this lovely place again. The staff took good care of us, and made things happen with ease. The hard working staff went above and beyond to make every moment special. The scenery was gorgeous. I was so comfortable, that I would have been happy to spend all day on the lodge property. But, I did not travel to Africa to sit around. 🙂 

    The people are amazing: hard working, soft spoken, and very proud of their heritage.

    The wildlife was obviously fantastic, but the employees of the lodge also made it extra special. In addition to the hospitality staff, I was equally impressed with the trekkers, rangers, guides and porters that dedicate their lives to protecting their local wildlife!

    Thank you PAKUBA SAFARI LODGE for the trip of a lifetime. I appreciate everything that you do. When I go back to Africa, I want to stay here again.

  • star rating  The lodge is located right inside the Murchison Falls National Park and on the banks of the Nile.

    As such it is surrounded by wildlife and there were Waterbuck wandering around the hotel grounds whilst we were there. It's also perfectly situated for taking an early morning safari drive out into the magnificent Murchison Falls National Park.

    The rooms are extremely large, clean and well equipped. A slight issue was that the electronics in our room were a bit temperamental; it was initially impossible to get some of the lights to turn on but one of that staff helped us with that.

    Food was tasty and plentiful and the staff were excellent.

  • star rating  We spent 3 night at this lodge. Very pleasant experience. Rooms are very clean. We had electricity every night from 6:30 Pm to 7:30 Am which was good for charging the phones. During the day, internet and electricity is available at lobby
    There was hot water available for shower all the time.
    The staff were super friendly and caring. They treat you like their own family. They try to know all guests and their needs and do their best to accommodate for those needs.
    2 times our safari took longer that expected and they kept food warm after the serving time just for us which was very nice. The location of this lodge is very nice and unique. It has nice outside fire pit that you can enjoy. The pool has Nile river view. Overall it exceeded our expectations and we had super fun time there. I highly recommend this place.

  • star rating  We spent to nights at the Pakuba. This is a large lodge with several smaller cozy places to relax. We had a double room and it was quite spacious and had great water pressure. The lobby had wireless internet access. The pool was excellent and had beverage service and numerous lounges. There are excellent views of the Nile and lots of wildlife can be spotted while entering and exiting the lodge. Sunsets are amazing. Meals are buffet style but cater to many different common diet concerns and breakfast has eggs made to order if desired. My only down side is that their drinks, from water, to beer to wine are overly expensive.

  • star rating  Pakuba Safari Lodge is a hidden gem. The lodge is beautifully located right in the middle of the Park and you are surrounded by an abundance of game. What stood out for us was the customer service from the team, Patrick, Godfrey, Ambrose, Silver the Ranger and others as well as the food!

    I travelled with my family and we will certainly plan a trip back to Pakuba!

  • star rating  We had such a wonderful stay at Pakuba. The lodge and rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is accommodating and personable. The food was fantastic!

    The pool was a clean and cool retreat after a fun hot Safari.

    3 baboons had a tussle right before us near the pool. The old baboon protected his territory and sat on top of the dirt mound after with his chest puffed out! Animals are amazing. We enjoyed the warthog visits on the lodge porch.

    Respect the animals, they are wild and dangerous. Keep your distance and watch them just do their thing.

    We are headed back in July 2022 with different friends.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
