Mweya Safari Lodge
The Lodge is located on a peninsula in the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park overlooking the Kazinga Channel offering great views of the waterway and its associated wildlife. With 32 standard rooms, 12 deluxe rooms, 2 suites, 2 Family Cottages, 2 Luxury Tents, 2 Standard Tents, Presidential Cottage and Queens Cottage, the property is large and feels more like a hotel than an intimate lodge. However, that means there are many creature comforts provided such as an infinity swimming pool and restaurant with large outside deck, both having great views of the channel and national park beyond. The lodge’s pontoon is the starting point for most of the channel cruises.
Enjoy a cocktail in the infinity swimming pool or at the Tembo bar while you train your binoculars across the channel to identify the different wild animals cooling off in the waters below.
Just 100 metres from the lodge gate, the Uganda wildlife Authority Information Centre contains some excellent exhibits describing the national park and the Great Rift Valley environment.
A stunning infinity pool, restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, Tembo bar, sauna, laundry service, air conditioning, business centre, fitness centre, gift shop, conference facilities, information centre.
