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.
