Mweya Safari Lodge is located in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, on a peninsula and has the added benefit of being surrounded by the breathtaking Rwenzori Mountains. Offering opulent lodgings, cuisine and services, this establishment straddles the best of both worlds by offering a wilderness experience with all the bells and whistles of a luxury hotel.
Mweya Safari Lodge offers a variety of suite types allowing guests to determine the level of luxury they need.Choose from standard en-suite single, double and twin rooms (with views of Lake George and Lake Edward as well as the mountains); deluxe rooms (which are more spacious and include air-conditioning as well as a living room);four luxury cottages (Queens, Presidential, Rwenzori and Royal).
These cottages also boast glamorous en-suite master bedrooms, en-suite twin bedrooms, a kitchenette and dining room. The four new tents have ceiling fans, showers, dressing tables, work desks, and wonderful deck terraces, with lounger chairs, to marvel at the stunning views of the Kazinga channel where forest hogs graze the grass outside and hippo also make an odd appearance.
In the culinary department, the wide range of cuisines on offer is nothing short of impressive, and includes Continental, Indian and international dishes to please every palate. And as far as activities go, the lodge caters for adventure-seekers as well as those who just want to relax in this pristine wilderness. Guided game drives are extremely popular, while luxury boating trips on the Kazinga Channel afford guests the chance to spot some of the 612 different species of birds that can be seen here. Of course, a hike to see the chimpanzees in the breathtaking Kyambura gorge is a must. The gorge – a formation of the natural rift in the earth – is the result of ancient movements of tectonic plates and has subsequently transformed into a natural forest where hippos, monkeys, chimpanzees, elephants and buffalos are very much at home.
From soothing massages at the Health Club to adrenalin-fuelled outings watching some of Africa’s most fascinating creatures, Mweya Safari Lodge caters for every need
