Sambiya River Lodge Cottages and Budget Bandas

Sambiya River Lodge is in the Heart of the Park, only a 20 minute drive to the Top of the Falls or the Parra ferry. Visitors use it as a base to explore the unique Murchison Falls National Park: cruise the River Nile; go on fishing safaris; trek chimpanzees; go on birding, photographic and/or walking safaris; view the dramatic waterfalls of the Nile which plunge 45 metres through a narrow 6 metre canyon of boulders.

The open fronted eco-friendly Lodge, constructed with local materials in an Africana design, blends in with the lush environment and allows panoramic vistas as well as game and bird viewing along the Sambiya River and the adjacent flood plain. The surrounding leopard country is a mixture of savannah plain and riverine forest that supports a variety of wildlife, untouched by mass tourism. It is the perfect location for those who want to experience the unique ambiance of Africa.

The twenty-one thatched roofed cottages include either one or two bedrooms with twin or double beds. Each of the 28 bedrooms has its own ceiling fan, mosquito nets over beds, private bathroom facilities (hot water provided by solar panels), as well as a verandah from which guests can relax and enjoy the tranquility of Africa. The Lodge also offers 13 budget bandas, some self-contained and others with shared shower and toilet facilities. 

Sambiya River Lodge’s unique charm is not only in it’s setting, but in its friendly service and good food offered to her guests. Clients can relax around the “Fishermen’s Bar”.

-A resident ranger guide offers walking safaris around the 35 hector property.

-A swimming pool offers a break from hot African days.

-A gift shop and secure parking are additional facilities.

-Weather permitting, UTL reception can be obtained for mobile phones on the main lodge verandah.
