Red Chilli Rest Camp

Hostel in Murchison Falls National Park

With good tours and buoyant staff, this is the most popular budget option in Murchison. Basic bandas (thatched-roofed huts) are good value though not exactly grime-free, while safari tents get the job done. The restaurant-bar is set under a thatched roof with good river views and a roaring evening fire. Meals, all extra, are good value. Book well in advance.

Hippos regularly graze here at night, so bring a torch and give them a very wide berth.
