Set against the striking backdrop of Lake Kyaninga and the legendary Mountains of the Moon, Kyaninga Lodge is the epitome of luxury, romance and style in the wild heart of Africa. The lodge’s nine cottages are built on platforms, which are set apart to offer privacy and tranquillity. Each spacious cottage is beautifully appointed with a choice of twin or double beds made up with Egyptian cotton bedlinen and soft feather pillows. Cottages boast stylishly rustic furniture, a private deck and an elegant bathroom with a marble countertop basin, a claw-footed freestanding bath, and a glass-walled shower. Once inside, the lodge offers comfortable seating areas around an arresting double-sided, open fireplace, and two raised galleries boast intimate spaces for those wishing to absorb the evocative landscape in a more private setting.
Delicious meals, using locally sourced ingredients, are served in the main building.
Relax at the sparkling swimming pool, which overlooks the lake, providing the perfect spot to soak up the surrounding natural beauty. If you are both looking for a little more adventure you can follow the steps down from the pool to the remarkably blue waters of the lake surrounded by primeval forest. Enjoy a Crater Rim Walk with good chances of seeing vervet monkeys, black and white colobus monkeys and a wide array of birds. Go on a stunning Forest Walk, a must for nature lovers and an engaging Village and Cultural Walk through the surrounding villages providing insight into daily life in rural Uganda. Strap on your walking shoes for a Great Rift Valley Walk taking you down to the very edge of the escarpment. Visit Queen Elizabeth National Park, take a romantic boat trip up the Kazinga Channel and stroll through the magically biodiverse Tooro Botanical Gardens.
