Ndali Lodge

Location
Kibale Forest, Uganda

Ndali Lodge in Kibale Forest is one of the most exciting accommodations we offer... anywhere! The setting is one of the most dramatic in Africa: the lodge is perched on the rim of an extinct volcano that has filled with water to become scenic Lake Nyinambuga – 250 acres in size and 430 feet deep.

The main thatched lodge has a spacious sitting room, reception area and dining room flanked by eight cottages providing luxurious accommodation for 16 guests. The west-facing cottages have a panoramic view of the rainforest-draped 'Mountains of the Moon.' Cottages are built of local stone and thatch, and the interiors are imaginatively and comfortably furnished using local natural materials. Each cottage, large enough to accommodate a family, has en suite facilities with bath, shower, toilet and wash basin, plus a private veranda, ideal for watching the sun set behind the Rwenzori Mountains, the snowcapped peaks of which are easily visible on a clear day.

At night the dining room is lit exclusively with candles – the lodge has no electricity or generators to alter the tranquil atmosphere, though there is solar lighting in the cottages. The sitting room, reception and dining room open onto Lake Nyinambuga and are connected by open-air passageways. Breakfast is served on the veranda overlooking the lake, and guests enjoy freshly squeezed passion fruit juice (from Ndali's vines when in season) and homemade bread with wild honey to complement a full English breakfast.

Ishasha Wilderness Camp

Location
Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Ishasha Wilderness Camp enjoys an isolated setting in the remote southern Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park on the Ntungwe River. The region is famed for its tree-climbing lions, which can sometimes be spotted resting in the branches of the large fig trees in the area. Ten spacious framed canvas tents are situated in the wooded area beside the river, each comfortably furnished with large mosquito-netted beds and an en suite bathroom and dressing area with hot and cold running water, hot ‘bush-style' showers, and an eco-friendly flush toilet. A central lounge, dining and bar area under cool thatch provides a comfortable environment for meals and relaxing during the day. A shaded area beside the river offers al fresco dining and an evening fireplace for guests to relax with sundowners and share their day’s experiences. The camp is designed to be as low-impact as possible, with carefully limited usage of water, power and other resources. Solar power is used for lighting, with power outlets limited to a central area that has been allocated for recharging cameras and other small electronic devices. Wireless Internet access is available.

Mweya Lodge

Location
Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Mweya Lodge enjoys an unsurpassed location, perched atop a peninsula jutting into the Kazinga Channel, the meandering waterway at the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Every room overlooks the channel, which boasts the world’s largest concentration of hippos. Guests also enjoy magnificent views of Lakes George and Edward, not to mention wild forest hogs grazing just outside the windows and an abundance of colorful local birds. In the distance rise the volcanoes of the Rwenzori Range, the famed “Mountains of the Moon."

Though Mweya is a larger lodge than we typically use on our safaris, its outstanding location directly on the Kazinga Channel makes it a most gratifying stay. The lodge's 54 en suite rooms have a host of amenities for guests' comfort. Lodge interiors feature a dramatic high-ceilinged lobby and incorporate thatch, stucco and terracotta tile. Guests may enjoy drinks amid the classic safari ambience of the Tembo Bar, and meals in the formal dining room or on the veranda, with views that will surely distract from dinner! Enjoy a swim in the infinity pool as you identify animals cooling off in the channel below. A health club and spa offer a range of facilities, including sauna, steam bath and relaxing treatments.

Mahogany Springs Lodge

Location
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda

Mahogany Springs Lodge enjoys one of the finest locations in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Seven large thatched cottages overlook the clear waters of the Munyanga River and face the dense jungles of the national park that’s home to half the world’s endangered mountain gorillas. The lodge combines privacy, serenity, scenery and exceptional comfort to create a gorilla and birding safari base that has few peers. Every room at Mahogany Springs is a spacious suite, with large double doors and windows that bring the outdoors in. Each suite has a balcony overlooking the verdant valley. Suites have hardwood floors, minimalist wood beds with crisp white linens, writing desks and bathrooms with terra cotta mosaic-tiled showers. The main building features high ceilings under thatch and wrap-around terraces that survey the panorama of river and forest. Enjoy a glass of wine at the impressive wooden bar, or relax in front of the double-sided fireplace with a book or board game from the library.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Location
Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge, situated at the base of the Virunga mountain range, is ideally located just 15 minutes from Volcanoes National Park headquarters where all gorilla treks commence. The lodge is set amid lush vegetation and built using local natural materials. Surrounded by gardens and within full view of a nearby volcano summit and the hills of Musanze, the lodge offers simple yet comfortable accommodations in 30 individual cottages constructed of brick and tile. Cottages are spacious and modestly but adequately furnished; each has an en suite bathroom with shower. Due to the altitude it can sometimes be quite cold, and while there is no heating system, each cottage has a fireplace to take the edge off the evening chill (wood and charcoal provided on request). The lodge has electricity and hot water supplied by a generator that runs sporadically throughout the day. The main area has a basic bar and restaurant.
