Red Chilli Rest Camp is superbly located to explore Murchison. This budget Uganda safari lodge in Murchison Falls offers affordable accommodation. Red Chilli Rest Camp is located in the southern bank of the River Nile. This is in the heart of the Murchison Falls National Park.
Red Chilli Rest Camp
The hottest place to chill in Murchison! Red Chilli is superbly located to explore the largest National Park in Uganda. Situated in the heart of the park at Paraa, the camp is just 500m from the ferry, where all vehicles cross for Nile Delta game drives and from where boats depart for Falls & Delta trips. Sometimes you don’t even have to leave the camp for game viewing though – hippo and warthog are regular visitors to the camp too!
This Murchison Falls camp offers the only low to mid budget accommodation in the park, in furnished safari tents and bandas (small individual houses) with public or private bathrooms, as well as the only camping facilities with modern showers, toilets, cooking area and security lighting.
This is not a posh lodge with three course meals and all the trimmings but they do provide an authentic safari experience…and at a really great price!
