Set against the stunning backdrop of Lake Kyaninga and the Rwenzori Mountains 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. You can experience the beauty and romance of this unexplored region, while staying in the height of luxury and elegance. Nine exclusive cottages made from hand carved logs, superb dining, and a wealth of adventures await.
Set apart and raised on platforms, the Lodges's nine cottages offer you privacy and tranquillity. Each spacious cottage comes with a choice of twin or double beds made up with the softest bed linen and feather pillows. An indoor seating area leads out to a private deck where you can enjoy morning tea or coffee with views over the lake and the Rwenzori Mountains. The en-suite bathrooms boast marble countertop basins set atop crafted Elgon olive pedestals, claw footed freestanding baths, and glass-walled showers. With modern solar power, you will always have hot water and electrical charging points.
The finest 3-course cuisine awaits you in the Main Lodge. The menu is based on classical European cuisine and tweaked to make use of local ingredients, many of which are hand picked from Kyaninga Lodge’s own kitchen garden or the neighboring markets. After dinner, head through to the Lounge where you can relax by the fire with a drink from the fully stocked bar. During the day time, head out to the terrace and relax on loungers while enjoying the view of Lake Kyaninga.
One of Kyaninga Lodge’s many outstanding features is the swimming pool, which overlooks the lake and provides a perfect spot in which to soak up the surrounding natural beauty while enjoying a refreshing dip. Lined with pavers cut from the local volcanic rock and featuring two wooden decks and a submerged seat, the swimming pool represents another feat of engineering illustrative of Kyaninga Lodge’s relentless pursuit of luxury. From the pool, take the steps down to the terraced lawns where you can relax and soak up the peace and tranquility of Lake Kyaninga and the vistas beyond. For the more adventurous a walk down Lake Kyaninga itself which, with its remarkably blue water and ‘land that time forgot’ rainforest, offers a unique opportunity to experience a wilderness often seen on nature programmes, but rarely encountered in real life.
