The Mihingo Lodge
The Mihingo Lodge - a quiet and exclusive haven for relaxation directly at Lake Mburo National Park.
The tents at Mihingo Lodge
We have ten rooms at the lodge. Special feature: These are wooden platforms that stand on stilts and that are covered with a thatched roof.
At Mihingo-Lodge you live in a spacious and comfortable tent - including bathrooms with hot water, shower and breathtaking views over Lake-Mburo National Park!
Each of these luxury tents is situated on a small private ground within the Mihingo-Lodge, so you can enjoy the tranquil environment in complete seclusion. You can choose between different bundles: Some tents are situated in a wooded area, some with lake views, and some tents are located on ledges with magnificent views of the National Park.
Dining and pool area at Mihingo Lodge
The scrumptious meals will be served at Mihingo-Lodge in our large thatched dining area. Situated on a rocky outcrop the building material comes exclusively from the environment: Weathered wood of dead olive trees and native grasses.
Below the dining area our swimming pool is located with magnificent views over the park. The Mihingo Lodge is well known not least because of the breathtaking sunsets that can be enjoyed at the dining and pool area.
The Lake-Mburo National Park
Mihingo-Lodge offers guests a fantastic opportunity to observe the wildlife at the waterhole below the swimming pool.
The Lake Mburo National Park is the home of many animal species, including zebras, impalas you will not find in most other national parks in Uganda. In addition, many waterbucks, buffalos, hippos, leopards, crocodiles and many other species in the National Park are home.
Recreation at Mihingo-Lodge
Besides lounging by the pool and listening to the sounds of nature the Mihingo-Lodge provides numerous other activities to explore the Lake Mburo National Park. Among these are boat trips on Lake Mburo, hikes in the savannah, game drives and - almost unique in Uganda - Horse Back safaris.
The Mihingo Lodge: Nature conservation always comes first
As the operator of the Mihingo-Lodge we are very conscious of the fragile environment, and environmental protection is very important for us. The buildings are designed that they blend inconspicuously with the rock- and savannah landscape. Electricity, hot water and water pumps are powered by solar energy, of course. We have also installed a system to use the natural rainwater for our purposes.

Where to find the Mihingo Lodge
Lake Mburo National Park
The Lake Mburo National Park is a very special place with a high diversity of species. It is well known for its numerous wetlands and that it is home to several species of mammals and birds which can be found nowhere else in Uganda.
Its unusual blend of rolling hills and idyllic lakeshores provide a diverse mosaic of habitats for the species-rich fauna: seasonal and permanent swamps, extensive acacia forests and green valleys.
"Rwonyo" headquarters is only 30 minutes away (15 km drive from the Mihingo Lodge) and from there you start your game walks or a boat trips on Lake Mburo.
With a total area of 260 square miles Lake-Mburo National Park is in comparison to many other East African parks relatively small. But because of its diversity of habitats - dry slopes, rocky, bushy thickets, open and wooded savannas, forests, swamps and lakes - it provides home to a surprising variety of plants and animals.
The center of the park is Lake Mburo. Together with 14 other lakes it is part of a large wetland. These wetlands are connected by the Ruizi River on the west side of the park. Almost one fifth of the park consists of wetlands - either seasonally or permanently flooded. The swamps are home to many water birds that you can watch on a wonderful boat tour.
Hardly any other lodge in Uganda offers so many possibilities for your leisure. From wildlife viewing to sporting and spa offers there is something for everyone.
Horse Back safaris at Mihingo-Lodge
Mihingo Lodge is well known for its Horse Back safaris in and around the Lake-Mburo National Park. Horse safaris are an exciting possibility to enjoy wildlife around the Mihingo-Lodge. Without noise and fumes you feel like a part of the nature and you have the chance to see even very shy animals. It is an exhilarating experience that you should not miss.
We always adjust the ride at the riding experience of our guests. For advanced users there are beautiful stretches of trot and canter. A total of 7 horses and 4 ponies are available for you.
One of the best tours in the park is a 4 to 5 hours ride on the 4 km long Warukiri Range. This path is in the middle of the park and offers a magnificent 360-degree view of the surrounding hills and valleys. At the end of the road there is a water hole, which is often the target of buffalo and other animals.
Our horses are suitable for persons up to 80-100 kg. Helmets are available in all sizes. For the ride we recommend long pants and sturdy shoes. Our riding safaris are made for groups up to 6 guests. All our rides are usually accompanied by one or two experienced guides.
All guests who have ever participated in a Horse BAck safari were absolutely thrilled!
