Adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park, perched high on a rocky kopje, whose pre-Cambrian granite boulders were formed over 500 million years ago, is Mihingo Lodges, one of the region’s leading safari lodge.
Lake Mburo National Park is located close to the highway that connects Kampala to the parks of western Uganda.
The lodges’ surrounding gives spectacular views over a vast savannah landscape. Designed to blend in with its fragile surroundings, this environmentally friendly lodge offers comfort, relaxation and the experience of being at one with nature.
An infinity pool overlooks the valley below where buffalo, eland, impala, warthogs, bush buck and zebra can be seen at the waterhole.
On the rocks you may have the rare chance of seeing the resident family of Klipspringers. On a night game drive you do have a good chance of seeing a leopard, or two of them.
“As Rungwe Kingdon (the son of the well-known wildlife author, Jonathan Kingdon, and one of Mihingo’s guests) once told us “I have seen more leopards in Lake Mburo National Park than any other park in East Africa”, reads part of the note on the lodge’s infomercial.
To further enhance the visitor’s experience of wild Africa, Mihingo offers daytime and overnight horse safaris into the national park.
