Mweya Safari Lodge

Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

While rooms verge on cheesy - this lodge is well located in the north of Queen Elizabeth National Park overlooking Lake Edward, Lake George and the Kazinga Channel. The lodge has a nice restaurant and swimming pool. The 'lawn mowing' warthogs are quite amusing. All Kazinga Channel cruises commence from here.

Mweya Safari Lodge is located on a peninsula overlooking Lake Edward and Lake George, in the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Mweya can be compared to no other - with great location, breathtaking views from every room, an abundance of game and some of the best bird watching in east Africa - it's truly a natural paradise just awaiting exploration.

Each of the lodge rooms includes a private bathroom and balconies overlooking the Kazinga Channel and Lake Edward. Facilities also include a nice swimming pool, a poolside bar, the Tembo Safari Bar, the Kazinga Restaurant serving global cuisine, and a souvenir shop. The rooms are decorated with a tasteful blend of Victorian elegance with lively African-inspired art pieces.

You will have a chance to discover the vast variety of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, hyena, hippo, crocodile, and waterbuck via game drives in Land Cruiser vehicles. Experience a launch trip on the Kazinga Channel using one of our luxury boats, or watch some of the 612 different species of birds available to be seen. Nearby, chimpanzees can be found in the breathtaking Kyambura gorge which is a formation of the natural rift in the earth. Here the ancient movement of tectonic plates has created a natural forest habitat for hippos, monkeys, chimpanzees, elephants and buffaloes.
