Hire a car and explore Murchison River lodge

Follow this rough dirt road for some 1 ½ kilometres and then you reach Murchison River Lodge: www.murchisonriverlodge.com. If you continue on this road for some minutes, you reach the lovely Nile Safari Lodge (upmarket) and, yes, they have a great swimming pool. For both lodges you can avoid entering the national park, and therefore avoid paying park entrance fees, by taking the much longer, but very picturesque route via the Albert shoreline and Bulisa town.
