AccommodationLocated adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park, Mihingo Lodge is perched high on a rocky kopje and has spectacular views over the vast savannah landscape. Designed to blend in with its fragile surroundings, the twelve thatched-roofed tents are raised on platforms and come with en-suite bathrooms, hot and cold running water, showers and flush loos. Each rooms has its unique charm and character, whether it is nestled in forest, overlooking the lake, perched on a rocky outcrop or located down by the water hole. An infinity pool overlooks the valley below where buffalo, eland, impala, warthogs, bush buck and zebra can be seen at the waterhole.
LocationWith 370 km², Lake Mburo National Park is a relatively small park. Lake Mburo, located in the middle of the park, forms a wetland that includes a 50km long swamp area and 14 other lakes, that are all supplied with water from the Ruizi River.
