Mihingo Lodge

Mihingo Lodge

In an exclusive nature reserve next to Lake Mburo National Park, Mihingo Lodge is one of Uganda’s rich gems. The large main structure blends easily into its natural setting with its thatched roof, rocks, weathered olive tree wood, and native grasses. The dining area gives way to impressive views of game gathering in the valley below and spectacular evening sunsets over Lake Mburo National Park.

Luxurious tented rooms are built on secure wooden platforms covered with a thatched roof. Each one has been uniquely placed around the property to provide the ultimate in privacy and diversity of setting. Some feature lake views, others forest views, and yet others rocky outcrops. All are spacious, comfortable, and offer en-suite bathrooms and panoramic views.

Mihingo Lodge and Lake Mburo National Park partner to offer an exciting safari experience for Mihingo guests. The one-of-a-kind outing that adventure-seeking guests should not miss is the horseback safari. Guides adjust the ride to the skill of the group, and two experienced guides normally accompany each ride. Beginners enjoy the horseback safari walk because it is the best way to view wildlife without startling the animals. Many of the wild animals approach the horses and riders out of curiosity, and guests thrill at seeing wildlife at such close range. Commonly seen animals are warthog, topi, eland, buffalo, impala, duiker, bushbuck, waterbuck, zebra, and many other smaller animals missed by traditional 4x4 safari game drives.

More experienced riders enjoy spots along the ride that allow for trotting and cantering. Mihingo Lodge has seven horses and four ponies but limits each horseback safari to six guests at a time.

Many other exciting activities are available, including traditional game drives, game walks, boat trips on Lake Mburo, walking safaris near Lake Mburo, nocturnal game drives, mountain bike rides, and cultural walks. Families especially enjoy making memories together by watching bush babies in their natural environment, viewing game from the observation hide at Mihingo waterhole, playing tennis at the lodge’s clay tennis court, and swimming in the gorgeous infinity pool.
