Perfect forR and R after a flight, or the first tempting sightings of Uganda’s wildlife.

Hotel Overview


On the edge of Lake Mburo National Park.

Rooms at Mihingo Lodge

The lodge’s ten luxury tents are scattered across a rocky kopje, and the climb to reach them is worth every step. Each tent is set on its own stilted platform, with a verandah in front (perfect for a peaceful sunset drink) and an ensuite bathroom.  You’re very much at one with nature here, so expect to hear the birds singing as you fall asleep, and monkeys creeping up to steal the sugar for your morning coffee!

Food and Facilities

The lodge has been designed to take advantage of its beautiful setting, so and it’s possible to gaze out over the plains from the edge of the infinity pool or watch zebras drinking at the waterhole while you’re eating dinner (made with fresh veggies from the lodge’s garden). If the distractions of the bush aren’t enough, there’s also tennis court ten minutes away from the lodge.

Activities at Mihingo Lodge

A boat trip on the lake is a wonderful way to see the birds and the wildlife, and guests can also do game drives in the park. There are some lovely walks in the area, and we can’t recommend riding safaris highly enough. They’re an exhilarating way to feel part of the bush, and watch the animals as one of their own.
