    We have come many times to MRL and it has always been great! It is very family orientated, staff is friendly, food is consistently good, the pool house is nice to take a break and the lodge is well taken care of. review

Murchison River Lodge impact highlights

Sustainable conservation combined with the empowerment of the local community is something Murchison River Lodge has, in recent years, spent time focusing on. They offer staff training programs, host a women’s group, work closely with the Ugandan Wildlife Authority and the Ugandan Conservation Foundation and promote local businesses. Never has it been more important to be aware of our impact on the world than now.
