Mweya Safari Lodge
Queen Elizabeth National Park
AccommodationMweya Safari Lodge is a relatively large lodge with 32 standard rooms, 12 deluxe rooms (air-conditioned), 2 suites (air-conditioned), 2 standard and 2 luxury tents, the Presidential Cottage, the Queen's Cottage and two family cottages. Each room has an en-suite bathroom and a private balcony.
A swimming pool with pool bar, health club and spa, curio shop, restaurant serving international cuisine and safari bar are all part of the lodge's main building, offering guests plenty of variety in addition to safari activities.
This lodge is far too unpersonal for our liking and we only book this property if specifically requested.
LocationMweya Safari Lodge is located at the western end of the Kazinga Channel on a peninsula in the Queen Elizabeth National Park (Mweya Paninsula). The Kazinga Channel connects Lake Edward and Lake George, named after Queen Victoria's son, Edward VII and his successor, George V.
The lodge has a great location overlooking the Kazinga Canal and Lake Edward. The impressive Rwenzori mountain range can be seen in the distance.
A drive from Kampala / Entebbe takes about six hours. Kibale Forest and the southern part of Queen Elizabeth National Park can be reached in about three hours. Mweya has its own airstrip.
WildlifeKazinga Channel is said to be home to one of the highest concentrations of hippos in Africa. On game drives in Queen Elizabeth National Park you may encounter lion, buffalo, antelope, elephant and leopard.
The Kyambura Gorge, about 35km from the lodge, is home to the only primates in Queen Elizabeth National Park. The gorge is a maximum of 100m deep and the Kayambura River flows through it. The Chimpanzee trekking takes about 2-3 hours, but the chance of success is not as high as in Kibale Forest.
ActivitiesGame drives in the National Park, boat safari on Kazinga Channel, bird watching, chimpanzee trekking in Kyambura Gorge.
