Nestled on the edge of an extinct volcano crater lake at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains lies Kyaninga Lodge. You can experience the beauty and romance of this unexplored region, while staying in the height of luxury and elegance. Nine exclusive cottages made from hand carved logs, superb dining, and a wealth of adventures await.
The top attraction is the Chimpanzee Safari in Kibale National Park. Deep in the evergreen rainforest of Kibale, you will come face to face with man's closest living relative. The forest is frequently used by documentary film-makers, including the great Sir David Attenborough. With the highest density of chimpanzees in the world, and with 13 other rare primates, the enormous Kibale Forest is a world treasure.
When not meeting the chimps, head out to the terrace and relax on loungers around the pool while enjoying the view of Lake Kyaninga. The more adventurous can walk down to Lake Kyaninga itself. With its blue water and ‘land that time forgot’ rainforest, it offers a unique opportunity to experience a wilderness rarely encountered in real life.
Kyaninga Lodge’s beautiful gardens are the creation of London-based landscape designer Imogen Jenkins. The gardens provide a stunning setting for relaxation, reflection, and space for games. There is even a lawn tennis court for you to enjoy.
The finest 3 course cuisine awaits you in the evening. The menu is based on classical European cuisine and tweaked to make use of local ingredients, many of which are hand picked from Kyaninga Lodge’s own kitchen garden or the neighbouring markets. After dinner, head through to the lounge where you can relax by the fire with a drink from the fully stocked bar.
Set apart and raised on platforms, the 9 cottages offer you privacy and tranquillity. Each spacious cottage comes with a choice of twin or double beds made up with the softest bed linen and feather pillows. An indoor seating area leads out to a private deck where you can enjoy morning tea or coffee with views over the lake and the Rwenzori Mountains. The en-suite bathrooms boast marble countertop basins set atop crafted Elgon olive pedestals, claw footed freestanding baths, and glass-walled showers. With modern solar power, you will always have hot water and electrical charging points.
You will feel a thousand miles away from the bustle of daily life, and you are - yet with wireless internet access in the Main Lodge, you can still share your adventures with friends and family back home.
