The lodge is also located on the great North-South elephant corridor that brought the Luo ethnic group, the missionaries and the early explorers in their quest for the source of the Nile and it’s also located at Wang lee, the point where the two feuding Luo legendary brothers, Gipir and Labongo separated to form the two tribes of the present day Alur to the west of the Nile and the Acholi to the east and a third brother Kumarac proceeded south to form the Luo Babito.
The location was carefully selected to be within 5 minutes – drive from Murchison Falls National Park, the largest national park in Uganda that gives ample opportunity for easy access to early morning and afternoon game viewing at the time providing the opportunity to allow for tourists to get back for lunch and have some rest.
