You can't beat the combination of being close to nature 24/7 but having all the home comforts of a hotel. So, Nile Safari Lodge ticked all these boxes.
We were greeted with a cold towel and a refreshing juice on check-in and treated like kings from then on. Our lodge was sat on the edge of the Nile and from the balcony we could see hippos floating by and monkeys playing on our roof and in the trees. However, the highlight was watching around 70 elephants feeding on the opposite bank while we sipped our sundowners.
The private outdoor shower attached to the room was a treat - one day we had a monkey peeping over to see what was going on!
This lodge was recommended to us by a family member who works for the parent company, Geolodges. There were plenty of other touches which made our stay, including tea and coffee brought to our lodge along with the wake-up calls and hot towels being brought to us after a long safari. I'd highly recommend it for those planning a safari in Uganda.

The lodge is around six hours from Kampala so it's probably best to hire a driver to get there.
