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 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.
Enojojo Lodge is located in the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park, where the famous tree-climbing lions live.
Game drivesto see these lions, and their unusual behaviour is the most popular activity.
However, there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy such as bush breakfasts, guided nature walks, fishing, camping, bicycle rides and visits to the local Bakiga communities.
