Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Kyaninga Lodge

overview

Safari Highlights

Kyaninga has achieved legendary status in Uganda as a labour of love for owner Steve Williams. Since he first bought the land in 2004, Steve, a master carpenter who moved to Uganda from the UK, has crafted this sublime lodge into a masterpiece of detailing and finishing.

Glorious Views

Located near Fort Portal on the edge of extinct volcanic Lake Kyaninga, the main building is perched on a rocky ridge, with the generously proportioned log cabins strung out on either side.

The view from the dining and rooms looks down onto the lake, and then on to the Rwenzori Mountains, the fabled “Mountains of the Moon” in the distance.

From the lodge, clients can track Chimpanzees and other primates in the nearby Kibale Forest National Park, about an hours drive away.

Relaxing and soaking in the the enchanting scenery of rural western Uganda, or hiking around the nearby crater lake are also options.
