Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Mweya Safari Lodge

overview

Safari Highlights

This 52-roomed lodge is located on the Mweya peninsula near the shores of Lake Edward in the “central sector” of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Mweya Safari Lodge, Uganda Journeys Discovering Africa

The Kazinga Channel

For those who like their creature comforts in the bush, Mweya is the perfect option, with air conditioned rooms and a fantastically located pool and viewing deck. If you are after a more traditional safari camp experience, the lodge also offers a number of safari tents, away from the main lodge building, with luxury furnishings and private river views. The lodge also has its own motor launches aboard which customers can explore the nearby Kazinga Channel, with its profusion of birds and the plains game that frequently comes down to the water’s edge to drink.

Lion Tracking from Mweya Journeys Discovering AfricaActivities & Attractions

From the lodge, clients can enjoy game drives to the Kob leks at Kasenyi, or to the surreal Crater Area that form the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains of the moon to the north. Mweya is well served by a network of tracks that reward you with sightings of plains game and predators, including the area’s celebreated Giant Forest Hogs, which are very rarely seen in any other part of Africa. Additionally, there are several 'behind-the-scenes' conservation activities you can enjoy when on safari with Journeys Discovering Africa in this area - from Mongoose Tracking to Lion Monitoring, and, once every two years, animal counts on a Hippo Census.
