      Kyaninga Lodge

      A Stunning Place to Start A Chimp Safari

      Set against a stunning backdrop of Lake Kyaninga and the legendary Mountains of the Moon beyond, Kyaninga Lodge is the spectacular result of one man’s vision and six years of unwavering commitment to creating an experience of Africa’s beauty unlike anything else. Kyaninga Lodge is less than an hour away from Kibale National Park, one of Africa’s premier destinations for chimpanzee tracking tours. The 300 square miles of the park contain some of the continent’s most dense and varied rainforest, and are home to 13 species of primates. The star attraction are the 1500 chimpanzees, but the guided walks will offer the opportunity to see rare red colobus and L’Hoest monkeys, as well as olive baboon, gray-cheeked mangabey, blue monkeys and bush babies. The forest is also home to over 300 species of birds, with six species endemic to the park, and other mammals including leopards, rare forest elephants, buffalo, giant forest hogs and half a dozen species of antelope. The lodge offers comfortable seating areas set around an imposing double-sided open fireplace where one can enjoy a cozy evening over a good book, a board game or a drink from the bar. The main building also houses the restaurant, where delicious meals compete with stunning views on both sides. Two raised galleries offer intimate spaces for those wishing to absorb the panorama in a more private setting. On the lake side, the main lodge leads to two decks furnished with comfortable loungers, while steps hewn from local volcanic rock lead down to the swimming pool and on to two lawned terraces overlooking the deep blue water and primeval forest of Lake Kyaninga itself. Kyaninga Lodge’s eight cottages are built on platforms and set apart to offer privacy and tranquility. Access to the cottages from the main lodge is via a raised wooden walkway. Each spacious cottage is beautifully appointed with a choice of twin or double beds made up with the softest bed linens and feather pillows. An indoor sitting area leads out to a private deck where one can enjoy morning tea or coffee and views over the lake and the Mountains of the Moon beyond. The en-suite bathrooms boast marble countertop basins set atop beautifully crafted elgon olive pedestals, claw footed freestanding baths, glass-walled showers and plenty of hot water from solar water heaters. Lighting in the cottages is also solar powered, and each cottage features an electrical socket for the charging of laptops and other appliances, providing the comforts of home in an extraordinary setting. Extra beds, hypoallergenic pillows and bedding are available on request. Located on the lower slopes of the property, Kyaninga Lodge’s beautiful gardens are the creation of London-based landscape designer Imogen Jenkins. The gardens were specially designed to provide a counterpoint to the magnificent lodge, and include one of the very few grass tennis courts in the country, as well as probably the only croquet lawn in Uganda.
