Nile Safari Camp
Why we like it
- Situated on the banks of the River Nile between Murchison Falls and Lake Albert
- The camp offers all the home comforts expected in this rustic African location
- Activities include bird watching, nature walks, game drive and boat trips
- Comfortable and simply designed rooms with a private outside area
- Facilities include an outdoor pool and a campfire in the evening perfect places for relaxing in the African bush
- A visit to the local Mubaku village gives an insight into the local way of life
As night falls watch as the fireflies dance over the River Nile and listen to the nocturnal wildlife begin their day, a truly magical place.
This is the second trip we have done with A&K. (The first was in 1999.) We were very impressed with A&K on the first trip. We were even more impressed with A&K on the second trip. Consequently, we are already considering a third trip with A&K – to Egypt in March 2014.
