You probably don’t believe in love at first sight, but i can bet that will start to change the minute you set foot the Kyaninga Lodge. It has views of Mountain Rwenzori you’ll instantly fall in love with. However, its claim to fame are views of Kyaninga Crater, a breathtaking lake with crystal clear water.
Words cant describe it well. For that, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

Every year, over 5,000 people from different corners of the earth travel to Uganda to spend at least one day in this lodge. One of the key reasons is its views. The property is sold out for much of the year, its that good.For almost every turn, there is something astonishing. This includes views of Africa’s oldest park, and Uganda’s smallest, Virunga and Mghahinga respectively, as found in Congo and Uganda respectively. Yes, from this lodge, you get to see a highlight of the best that these two countries have. You also get to feel the relaxing breeze of Lake Mutanda, one of Uganda’s most scenic crater lakes. If you love swimming, don’t hesitate to take a dive in it. It is free of Bilharzia.
In my opinion, Chameleon is the most colourful lodge in within easy reach from both Mghahinga and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Its decor and architectural style of its chalets are themed along a unique Euro-African style

One of the major reasons why people travel is to free their mind of stress, and this place delivers at every level in this regard thanks to its( views. it )is hard to trade for anything under the sun. I am talking about three things. 1. Views of the source of the world’s longest river. 2. Views of Africa’s biggest freshwater lake, Victoria. 3. Views of one of Uganda’s oldest and most welcoming kingdoms, Busoga. The lodge sits at the spot where John Speke stood in… before declaring Jinja as the source of the Nile. According to history. At the time, the area was still in the wildest state and water used to jet off the ground like a geyser before starting 6,670 km kilometer journey to the Mediterranean sea. Sadly, the construction of Owen falls dam few kilometers to its downstream has now submerged the river. As such, you can no longer its powerfulness until you take a boat ride over its source. If you are not that daring though, you can just sit back at the lodge and relax as the Nile’s breeze fills you with pristine freshness.

About/Profile

God didn’t rush when it came to creating views the the elevated rock atop which this lodge sits. He took things nice and slow, offering attention to detail when creating the different features around it. The result of this dedication is  an elevation that offers an electrifying view. Regardless of the time you visit this lodge, you are almost guaranteed of seeing all the cats to which Kidepo National Park is home; lions, leopards, cheetahs…. This is partly because they have all species of foods predators can ever dream of. Over 100 kobs, 200 toppi…..
Kidepo is found at within walking distance from Uganda’s borders with Kenya and Sudan. The park prides its self in having the biggest population of the buffaloes in East Africa, over 10,000. Watching them traffic from one side of the park to the other is like watching a migration of sorts. Full story coming up in the January-February edition of this blog.

Rwakobo Rock Lodge-Lake Mburo N/P

About/Profile

When humans are overwhelmed by something exceptionally good/extra ordinary, two things could happen.1. Their jaws could drop in awe, probably in disbelief. 2.Their hands could instantly reach out for their cameras/phones to capture the moment. Whenever I visit this family run Eco-friendly lodge, I lose count of the number of people who do both, probably because I equally get carried away by its views. I am talking about unobstructed views  of a majestic Lake Mburo National Park and its healthy concentration of herbivores, especially zebras, toppi, buffaloes, warthogs, impalas, bush-bucks….the list goes on. What more would one ask for?
Planing Basics
Rwakobo’s reception can comfortably accommodate 50 guests. It has eight cottages with a bed capacity of 16 guests.
