Mihingo Lodge


Mihingo Lodge is a peaceful and exclusive retreat adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park . The main dining area is a large thatched structure built of rocks, the wood of dead weathered olive trees found on the land, and native grasses. Below the dining area, an infinity swimming pool stretches out from the rocks and seems to disappear into the vast landscape beyond.


From the dining and pool area, guests can enjoy the view of a westward oriented valley and its stunning evening sunsets over Lake Mburo National Park . Animals gathering in the valley provide guests with fantastic game viewing opportunities or a chance to relax and watch wildlife at water hole below the pool.


Lake Mburo is home to many different animal species, including zebra, eland, and impala, who are not found in most other National Parks in Uganda . Additionally Lake Mburo has big numbers of waterbuck, topi, buffalo, hippo, duiker, bushbuck, klipspringer and if you are lucky you will see oribi, reedbuck, leopard and crocodiles.


Mihingo Lodge


Mihingo Lodge features ten rooms which are built on wooden platforms with stilts, covered by a thatched roof. Suspended under the thatched roof is a spacious and comfortable tent equipped with en-suite bathrooms with stunning views, including hot and cold running water, showers, and flush loos.


Each luxury tented room is nestled on a private piece of the lodge's property, enabling guests to enjoy the tranquil environment in complete seclusion. Placed in varied settings, some rooms are situated in a forest, some with a lake view, and some on rocky outcrops.


Activities at Mihingo Lodge


Aside from lounging by the pool, enjoying the sounds of nature, or watching nearby wildlife, guests can also avail themselves of the numerous activities offered by Lake Mburo National Park and Mihingo Lodge. Diversions include boat trips on Lake Mburo , savannah walks, game drives in Lake Mburo National Park , and horse back safaris.


Eco-Friendly


In appreciation of its fragile surroundings, Mihingo Lodge is an environmentally friendly accommodation. The buildings are constructed in such a way as to melt into the rocky outcrops and savannah landscape around them. Electricity, hot water, and water pumps are powered by solar energy and there is a natural water catchment system to take advantage of the rains.


Lake Mburo National Park

It contains an extensive area of wetland and also harbours several species of mammals and birds found nowhere else in Uganda . Its sculptured landscape, with rolling hills and idyllic lake shores has a varied mosaic of habitats; forest galleries, seasonal and permanent swamps, and rich acacia-woodland, and grassy valleys which all support a wealth of wildlife.

At 260 km2, Lake Mburo National Park is small in comparison with many other East African parks, but with its mosaic of habitats - dry hillsides, rocky outcrops, bushy thickets, open and wooded savannas, forest, lakes and swamps - are home to a surprising diversity of plants and animals.
