Chobe Safari LogeLodge
Located in the Murchison Falls National Park, this Five Star lodge is undoubtedly the gem in Uganda's crown of tourism destinations. The breath taking panoramic views, coupled with the sounds of the River Nile's magnificent rapids, sets the scene for an adventure that will impress even the most discerning of visitors
About an hour from the Forest, the small, bustling, town of Fort Portal offers a great place to stay if you want to explore the foothills of the northern Rwenzori Mountains and the Semliki Valley as well as Kibale Forest. Kyaninga Lodge is an unforgettable story as well as an amazing place to stay. Luxury cabins constructed from massive eucalyptus logs, built by self-taught builders, line the rim of the Kyaninga Crater looking down into the 220 metre lake below. .
Kyambura Gorge Lodge
The ridge at Queen Elizabeth National Park leads round to Kyambura Gorge, a natural rent in the otherwise flat plains, cut by water and thickly forested. The elegant Kyambura Gorge Lodge is the closest property to the Gorge and so is perfectly located to provide a luxurious base for chimp trekking, plus game drives and boat safaris in the heart of the Park.
Mihingo Lodge is a beautiful luxury lodge set in a private 97ha reserve bordering the park. Like Rwakobo, it has been built sympathetically into an extensive rocky outcrop - home to leopards as well as visitors. The 12 tented rooms have been designed and built with great attention to detail, making sure they complement the local environment. An hour or two in the infinity pool is one of the most relaxing experiences in Uganda. Mihingo also operate the high quality horse safaris available in the Park.
Apoka Lodge is the only accommodation (excluding the campsite and basic UWA resthouse) in the Park. It is a luxury lodge perfectly located on a low rise in the middle of the plains. Wildlife abounds, whether it be zebra or buffalo just outside your room when the grass is high, or lion lazing by the pool in the hot, dry months. 10 spacious bandas made from wood, canvas and thatch provide the accommodation. The dining room and bar is a magnificent, thatch-roofed, raised platform, perfect for wildlife viewing. There is also a high observation tower, which also doubles as an unforgettable private breakfast spot.
The Rift Valley Escarpment extends to the south east of the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Here, on a ridge rising dramatically above the plains, 16km from the Katunguru Gate of the Park, you will find a number of other small lodges all situated to take advantage of the views and the wonderful sunsets. Katara Lodge is one of our favourites here. The lodge has a charming, cabin-esque aesthetic as it's built from locally sourced materials. The views from the lodge are extraordinary and its a great base for exploring Queen Elizabeth National Park.
Bakers Lodge The south bank of the Nile has an increasing number of small and high quality options. Bakers Lodge is closest to the ferry point and to the shoreline. Opened in 2015, the rooms are generously proportioned, a charming combination of canvas and thatch built out from a communal dining room. Just up the hill, their neighbours, Twiga Safari Lodge provides a contemporary take on a tented camp, combining canvas with solid construction. The recently renovated Nile Safari Lodge has the best views enjoyed from 8 beautifully designed modern thatched bandas.
