Nile Safari Lodge in Murchison falls national park is a wholly owned family lodge, started in 2017 with a long-term dream of creating and offering a unique experience to the Pearl of Africa. To share the beauty of the region we grew up in and hold very close to our hearts. Our purpose and drive is to offer experiences and memories that enables our guests to “Escape the ordinary”.
Our lodge is designed to be minimally intrusive, with sweeping views of the surrounding landscapes, as well as total exclusivity. Our furniture and fittings have been carefully selected to blend the boundaries between inside and outside, creating a seamless integration with nature while upholding the comfort, aesthetics and durability. We pay very close attention to every small detail while trying to be one with the environment. As a family we care about the footprints we will leave on this earth and therefore we hold this project close to our hearts to conserve and preserve the natural environment and the beauty that comes along with it.
The Lodge was constructed using local materials with cultural knowledge of craftsmanship working with wood, grass and stone from the region. Our eucalyptus poles structure is a largely ‘wall-less’ arrangement, with the main building featuring an ornamental ‘diamond grid’ that efficiently stiffens the roof in what is a non-hierarchical structural system. There is no mechanical cooling anywhere throughout the lodge and the entire facility is powered by photo-voltaic panels. Guests are provided with all amenities of a luxury lodge including private fridges and wireless internet throughout, all powered by the sun. Water is pumped from the river, filtered to drinking water quality using a UV filtration system and then heated by the sun for showers and bathtubs.
