 kyaninga lodge

Kyaninga Lodge (Luxury)

Set against a stunning backdrop of Lake Kyaninga and the legendary Mountains of the Moon beyond, Kyaninga Lodge is the spectacular result of one man’s vision and six years of unwavering commitment to creating an experience of Africa’s beauty unlike anything else. When Englishman Steve Williams first saw the lake on his way to visit the gorillas, there was nothing there aside from un-spoilt natural beauty and breathtaking vistas. There aren’t many people who could stand on the rim of an ancient crater lake thousands of miles from home, and have the vision to imagine building a luxury lodge entirely out of timber on that very spot.
Exceptional design and sheer scale of the main lodge is immediately apparent from the moment one crests the hill and Kyaninga Lodge comes into view. Once inside, the lodge offers comfortable seating areas set around an imposing double-sided open fireplace where one can enjoy a cozy evening over a good book, a board game or a drink from the bar. The main building also houses the restaurant, where delicious meals compete with stunning views on both sides. Two raised galleries offer intimate spaces for those wishing to absorb the panorama in a more private setting. On the lake side, the main lodge leads to two decks furnished with comfortable loungers, while steps hewn from local volcanic rock lead down to the swimming pool and on to two lawned terraces overlooking the deep blue water and primeval forest of Lake Kyaninga itself. For those not quite wishing to really get away from it all, wireless Internet access is provided throughout the main lodge building.

Ndali Lodge (Luxury)

Owner run, located in western Uganda, in Bunyaruguru, near Fort Portal, overlooking Lake Nyinambuga, Ndali Lodge is a well managed luxury lodge.
Built on land originally owned by tea farmer Trevor Price, and developed by his son in the 1990s, Ndali Lodge is now run by Aubrey Price, whose attention to detail, care for the land and ability to create a relaxed and real Ugandan country experience is remarked upon time and again in guest feedback.
A thatch, wood and stone build, Aubrey's father, Mark is credited with Ndali Lodge's design, and with the fact that it is built from locally sourced and found materials. Consisting of a main lodge and 8 sleeping cottages, it is situated on the rim of an extinct volcano. The main lodge includes a reception, lounge, dining area, bar and verandah. Marked by polished floors, white walls, exposed beams, lightweight seating, well chosen local artifacts, and lit at night by candles or hurricane lamps, the main lodge's interiors are welcoming, intimate and relaxing. The food - buffet, picnic or dining - is first class, and evening meals take place around a communal table. The service, and the company of the lodge's owners, is equally good.
With accommodation for up to 16, the 8 cottages are spacious, airy stone and thatch builds, which, if need be, are large enough to accommodate families. Each en-suite room possesses a double or twin bed, plenty of changing room, a seating area and private verandah. The bathroom includes a flush toilet, basin, shower and stand-alone bath. Tasteful, restrained, the cottage's interior designs are a beautiful mix of reclaimed woods - four poster beds, tables - and locally made materials.
Activities at Ndali Lodge include farm tours, trips to Muhoma waterfall, boat trips, lake swimming, chimpanzee tracking in Kibale Forest National Park (45 minutes away) and excursions into the Bigodi wetlands.
