I stayed here as part of the 2 night tour from RC Kampala. The park is fantastic and the setting here is amazing.
The game drives were fun as was the Nile cruise with lots of sightings including a male lion standing on a termite mound! It was fun watching the baboons play around the cars as we waited for the ferry, but felt bad for the family that didn't roll up their windows.
The camp was great! The staff were super friendly and patiently took orders of the large groups. I liked the fire pit overlooking the river valley. The food was good and was brought out in pretty good time.
I stayed in one of the tents which was fun, but it got a lil hot. Also the zipper was hard to zip and unzip as part of it was broken off. The bathrooms could use a bit more cleaning and some hooks or benches to sit on.
The hippo in camp was interesting to see. People enjoyed checking it out, but I took off once people were beaming their torches on her and using the flash on their cameras. I'd suggest a lil more of a how-to-deal-with-the-hippo from the staff tho.
Overall, I loved the whole experience here. Very well organized and as a solo traveler Red Chili made getting to Murchison easy, fun and a great way to meet other travelers.
