Why We Like This Lodge

Location: Set just 2 km from the park gate, and on 40 acres of lush green land, Enjojo lodge is a beautiful base from which to see the unusual tree-climbing lions in the Ishasha Sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park

Beautiful surroundings: The lodge is surrounded by thick acacia woodlands, palm forests and right in front of the main area, a little lake. Afternoons are well spent on the terrace overlooking this small paradise. 

Diverse Wildlife: Enjojo lodge, named after a baby elephant calf born there during construction, is a wonderful habitat for many primates, birds and the occasional visiting elephant, which guests can observe without leaving the lodge.

Environmentally conscious: The lodge is entirely solar-powered and constructed with local materials to blend in with the surrounding environment. Most of the furniture and decor have been hand-crafted by the local community, and vegetables are home-grown. 

Enjojo Lodge


Enjojo Lodge offers luxury, mid-range and budget accommodation.

If you want the complete luxury experience, there are seven lovely en-suite cottages with thatched roofs. The cottages are either savannah or palm forest facing and have hot water, an outdoor shower and a spacious veranda.

If you are travelling in a large group, there is also a luxury safari house that can accommodate seven guests and includes a private campfire area.

Mid-range accommodation is comprised of traditional safari tents and bamboo huts. The less expensive options are non-self-contained and share a communal bathroom and shower.

Finally, DIY camping in the campsite behind the main lodge is for those looking for a safari on a shoestring. Water and firewood are provided as well as a simple kitchen area and outdoor shower and toilets.

The restaurant and bar area is a beautiful open plan thatch-roofed building overlooking a small green oasis.

The food served is mostly home-grown in the garden, lunch is à la carte, and dinner features a three-course set menu. Guests can choose between B&B, full board and half board. 

The large terrace is decorated with sofas and chairs and is the perfect place to get comfortable and escape the afternoon sun with an ice-cold drink. Later on, swap stories about the infamous tree-climbing lions of Ishasha around the warm campfire.
