Set in a phenomenal location, with the mythical Mountains of the Moon rising in the background, Kyaninga Lodge is a timber built luxury lodge on the edge of the crater lake known as Lake Kyaninga. Guests can enjoy wonderful vistas of the surrounding natural beauty from the comfort of this charming lodge. The main lodge building is quite large and houses the many facilities the property has to offer. Guests can expect a comfortable lounge area, a swimming pool, a fireplace (handy in the colder evenings) and a restaurant and bar.
There are only 8 cottages on offer, so the lodge is quite intimate and pervades cosiness. Guests reach the cottages via the main area, along wooden walkways. Each cottage provides an area of private decking that affords excellent views, en suite bathrooms with marble finishes, shower and bath and hot water courtesy of solar water heaters. Solar power also powers the lighting in the cottages. There is a socket found in the rooms, which is extremely useful for charging electrical equipment.
The meals served at Kyaninga are delicious and the restaurant is certainly worth enjoying to the full. All of the kitchen staff have been trained by an international chef, who also designed the impressive menu. The local ingredients (much of which is hand-picked from the lodge gardens) used in the cuisine provides it with a distinctive flair as the Ugandan ingredients blend deliciously with the predominantly European fare offered.
Entebbe is approximately a 4 hour drive away.
