Sambiya River Lodge
is located in the Murchison Falls
area of western Uganda
This lodge is situated about 20 minutes by road south from both the falls themselves and the main pontoon crossing to the main game areas to the north of the Victoria Nile.
It is a relatively large place, with 26 stone and thatch rooms and a further 10 low cost bandas, supported by large public areas and a large swimming pool.
Activities in this area include boat trips on the Victoria Nile, a walk to the top of the falls, game-viewing on the northern side of the river and the possibility of chimp tracking and birding in the forests to the south.
Sambiya River Lodge is a relatively pleasant facility by local standards, but one which attracts a relatively mixed bag of guest reviews. Perhaps a reasonable back up if other higher rated lodges in the area are full.
