From the vantage point of the lodge bar and restaurant you are treated to panoramic views of the park and the infamous River Nile as it flows downstream between papyrus islands and pods of hippos.

Beneath the large thatched roof is an open-sided restaurant. There is also a bar and terrace here. You can enjoy breathtaking views of the River Nile from this point.  From this wonderful vantage point you’ll see elephants, hippo and water buck. This is as they wade through the water to graze on the islands opposite.

Vervet monkeys pass through Murchison River Lodge most days. Smooth river stones decorate the floor areas and curved walls. This leads to the cooling effect beneath the grass roof.
