Family-run Mihingo Lodge has a beautiful setting atop a rocky outcrop overlooking Lake Mburo National Park. Each of the 12 tented rooms has a large private deck to make the best of the views. Those at lower levels are close to a salt lick and waterhole which attract a lot of wildlife both day and night.
One of the first to be carbon neutral certified, Mihingo is undoubtedly one of the most environmentally conscious lodges in Uganda. It relies 100% on solar energy and used plenty of reclaimed wood in its construction
There is a large infinity pool, bar and restaurant serving delicious meals.
Lake Mburo National Park is the best place in Uganda for klipspringers living on rocky outcrops, often seen while at Mihingo Lodge. Plains game like zebra and large herds of impala and eland are found in Lake Mburo National Park but nowhere else in Uganda. Lake Mburo is also home to more common species such as waterbuck, topi, warthog, bushbuck, reedbuck, oribi, vervet monkey, baboon and many types of mongoose. Another mammal special to Mihingo is the bushbaby (or long tailed galago) which comes nearly every night to a platform below the bar area. Mihingo is one of the few places in Africa where this very shy nocturnal primate can be seen close up. The large variety of habitats in Lake Mburo National Park support over 350 bird species including rare yet regularly spotted species like African finfoot and white-backed heron.
The lodge offers a range of optional activities including horse riding, mountain biking, walking tours and cultural visits.
The lodge has some superb horses and the absence of large predators means they can be ridden throughout the national park, offering a refreshingly different way to see the abundant wildlife found there.
