What Our Clients Say

  • 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  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 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.

  • 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  We absolutely loved our time at Pakuba Safari Lodge. The amenities were great and the staff was even better! We were in Uganda for 16 days and this was some of the best food we had the whole time! We hope to come back with friends and family.

  • 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  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  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!
