From footprints and animal droppings the ranger will tell you which animal has left it and how long ago. It is exciting to approach the wildlife at such close range.

Mihingo Lodge inside Lake Mburo NP
Mihingo Lodge is a peaceful and exclusive retreat adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park. The lodge has ten rooms built on wooden platforms with stilts, covered by a thatched roof. Suspended under the thatched roof is a very spacious and comfortable tent with stunning views, equipped with en suite bathroom.
Each luxury tented room is nestled on a private piece of the lodge’s property, enabling guests to enjoy the tranquil environment in complete seclusion. Placed in varied settings, some rooms are situated in a forest, some with a lake view, and some on rocky outcrops.
The main dining area is a large thatched structure built of rocks, the wood of dead weathered olive trees found on the land, and native grasses. Below the dining area, an infinity swimming pool stretches out from the rocks and seems to disappear into the vast landscape beyond. From the dining and pool area, guests can enjoy the view of a westward oriented valley and its stunning evening sunsets over Lake Mburo National Park.
