A haven of comfort and serenity, Tilenga Safari Lodge is set on the northern park boundaries of Murchison Falls National Park. It is located in one of the most breathtaking parts of Uganda just 1.7km away from Tangi gate on the main Karuma-Pakwach road. One has to watch out for its signpost a few kilometers before the Pakwach Bridge to not miss the magnificence of a place that looks out on the majestic Albert Nile.
Tilenga Safari Lodge features 13 elegant guest cottages, 2 luxury tents. The River Nile and the park are the main focus from an architect’s perspective, and so all the cottages and luxury tents have balconies and terraces facing the magnificent sweeping views.
The choice of accommodation at the lodge varies.

Bar and Restaurant
Our rooftop terrace is the perfect spot for your sundowner drink. After enjoying the breathtaking views of the Albert Nile, guests descend towards our restaurant where a fine 4-course dinner awaits you.
We are proud to only serve you the best. We bake our own bread and as fresh supplies are hard to find in the area, we bring most of our goods from Kampala. We have started our own vegetable garden and have planted plenty of fruit trees going from citrus, mango and pawpaw to jackfruit, passion and avocado trees.
Although we have several solar fridges and freezers we have a limited stock and therefore do not work a la carte but have a fixed menu instead. We kindly ask you to let us know in time if you have any dietary requirement so that we can cater for your request.
Our breakfast, lunch and dinner have flexible times. We will adapt to your time schedule; nothing too early, nothing too late!
Treat your self to the mouth-watering menu of local and international specialties produced by our experienced Chefs. Barbecues and traditional dancers make dining outdoors at Tilenga Safari Lodge an unforgettable experience.
Dining in our restaurant is a unique experience where modern interior décor blends with the safari feel.
For those who like dining out doors, the terrace is a scenic setting with spectacular panoramic views across the River Nile. After dining, the bar is right next door to the restaurant and is the perfect setting for a nightcap or aperitif!
The Bar is located in the central part of the lodge. The bar is the perfect meeting point after a long day on safari, or before and after dining.
There is ample space for you to relax and unwind – with a bit of support from our fully stocked bar! The furniture and interior reflects a unique fusion of modern and ‘Safari’ style décor.
