Mihingo Lodge overview

Mihingo Lodge is a peaceful and luxurious retreat adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park. Situated on over 200 privately owned acres, it has 10 luxury tented rooms built on raised wooden platforms covered by thatched roofs. all with en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, shower and flush toilet. Each room is named after an animal or natural feature and is secluded from the others. They are arranged in various locations including the forest, by the lake and on rock outcrops.

The main dining area is a large thatched structure built from rocks, wood and native grasses. Adjoining this room there's a lovely circular lounge, while the lounge on the upper floor offers panoramic views. At a lower level, an infinity swimming pool stretches out from the rocks and seems to disappear into the vast landscape beyond. From all these areas, you can enjoy views of the valley and stunning sunsets over Lake Mburo National Park. Animals gathering in the valley provide fantastic game viewing, and you'll also see wildlife, including the resident family of bushbabies, at the nearby water hole. 

Apart from relaxing by the pool, enjoying the sounds of nature, or watching nearby wildlife, you can take advantage of the numerous activities offered by Mihingo Lodge. These include boat trips on the lake, forest and savannah walks, horse riding, mountain biking and game drives in the national park.

Employees of Mihingo Lodge have received training in hospitality services, and the management is dedicated to providing an exceptional safari experience for every visitor.

Mr. Kevin Robinson (27/09/2013)

"I know we were on a short schedule, but we wish we had had an extra day to see everything that Mihingo had to offer. Great view from the lodge, lovely staff, and I think we could have spent hours at the animal hide."

Bob Stevens (03/06/2010)
"Great reception and friendly staff. "
Amanda Marks, Tribes
"Sadly I didn't stay here, but I wish I had!  From the fabulous position overlooking Lake Mburo Park, to the friendly staff and lovely rooms, this lodge has a great ambience.  
I met a family staying here and they had lengthened their stay as they found it so relaxing and comfortable. 
They also have a very good attitude towards social responsibility in their area, and are involved in a predator/livestock project whereby locals are reimbursed for livestock which is killed by big cats from the park. Obviously this is trying to encourage locals not to kill the wildlife, which is a big source of income for the area."
