Mihingo Lodge is a peaceful and exclusive retreat adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park featuring 10 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 an en-suite bathroom with stunning views, including hot and cold running water, showers, and flush toilets. 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.
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 the waterhole 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 and klipspringer, and if you are lucky you will also see oribi, reedbuck, leopard, and crocodiles.
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.
