The Lodge

Where luxury meets wilderness

ABOUT THE LODGE

Kigambira Safari Lodge in Lak Mburo National Park is a luxury eco-lodge built in the Southern part of Uganda’s smallest park. Nestled between Lake Kigambira and the Rubanga Forest, the location provides the ideal base for the adventurous traveller with a range of activities from game drives & boat trips on Lake Mburo, to exhilarating hikes through the low canopied forest or the looping trail around Lake Kigambira.

With 20% of the park featuring wetlands, this is an ornithologist’s paradise. Lake Mburo is home to over 350 species of birdlife, including the rare Shoebill, Red-Faced Barbet and African Finfoot among others. With its varied habitat, the park is home to approximately 68 mammal species – Oribi, Impala, Buffalo, Waterbuck, huge herds of Zebra, and even the elusive Leopard and Lion.

Kigambira Safari Lodge provides the perfect stopover for guests travelling onwards to Bwindi or Queen Elizabeth National Park, and guests can choose an activity-packed stay, or simply unwind by the pool and enjoy the unparalleled views of the lake.

With views over the lake, the swimming pool is the ideal spot to enjoy a lazy afternoon with a book and cocktail or to cool down on a hot day.

Our gift shop gives you the perfect opportunity to buy locally crafted souvenirs and mementoes for your loved ones. All products are fair trade, ethically sourced, and support various community-based initiatives.

As we are an Eco Lodge, the shop also stocks various eco-friendly items, including the toiletries available in all rooms. What better way to end your stay than by reducing the carbon footprint and contributing to a cleaner, greener Uganda,
