What Our Clients Say

  • 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  The lodge offered our group of 21 people a sundown experience overlooking grey Nile river with food and wine. The food and wine never arrived and the lodge refused to refund the money because their person bringing the food couldn’t find the group. It is cannot be our fault the person they sent doesn’t know the park.

  • 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  We stayed at this lodge for two nights, while visiting Murchison Falls NP. The staff was exceptionally accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and the food was good. Though this lodge can accommodate lots of people, it never felt crowded or was noisy. The location was excellent for game drives.
    Note: after dinner is served, you go to your room and stay there, as there may be wild animals walking around at night. (Part of the thrill of staying there.)

  • star rating  Gorgeous accomodation, in the middle of nature, we had fun going around in the garden and discovering every little or big creature and every new kind of tree or plant.
    The rooms are wide and confortable, but the best thing surely was the food.
    The staff was very good and helpful and made us feel like family.

  • 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  A place right out of a movie! - I took team of 30 people to Africa (in late 2021 to Uganda) for medical and care outreach and always end with a 2 day safari. This place was so nice, the staff so willing to serve, the facilities outstanding, and the food delicious that I'm taking another group this June 24!

  • star rating  Enjoyed our two nights at Pakuba Lodge immensely. We had room 7A and loved the spacious layout and AC. The breakfast and dinner buffets were great, and we enjoyed the beef plated lunch and beef wraps packed lunch we had to go. The seating areas facing the Nile were perfect for a drink at sunset. The craft shop on premises was also nice! The bathroom could use more light over the mirror.

  • star rating  First, this review is based on our stay from almost a year ago, but the pandemic kept me from doing too many reviews, and I am now trying to catch up. This was our first lodge that we stay at during our safari in Uganda. It was also the only lodge with air conditioning in the room. I was fine without A/C, but my wife enjoys her sleep better in a cooler room, so she really enjoyed these nights.

    The rooms were very comfortable, and the lodge itself was clean and cozy. We spent time after our safari in the pool, and it was great soaking while looking over the Nile. Also, you will see a variety of wildlife everyday while staying there.

    The staff was very friendly and professional. We were very impressed with the service provided by Junior in the dining room. We hope he doing well and is still enjoying his job at the lodge.

  • star rating  We enjoyed our 2-night stay at Pakuba Safari Lodge. As we drove in, I couldn’t help but notice the amazing location. On the banks of the River Nile, in Uganda’s largest national park (Murchison Falls), with abundant wildlife at your doorstep! We didn’t have to travel for a game drive – we were there! Our accommodations were spacious, clean, and comfortable. And after a long, hot day, it was a real delight to enter an air-conditioned room. Very friendly service by the staff. Our room attendant checked on us several times to see if we needed anything. All meals are buffet-style (made-to-order eggs at breakfast) and we didn’t go hungry. There is a lovely pool with patio, perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset. We had a small patio outside our room too. The downside: wi-fi is available only in the reception area, and there is no daytime electricity (always available in the main areas but remember to pack a portable charger power bank too). Our travel agent indicated this was a ‘moderate’ priced property, and I think it provides good value.
