About Kikorongo Safari Lodge
The lodge is situated about 38km east of Mpondwe, a town that sits at the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo, in the southern part of Uganda.
Sitting directly on the equator, the lodge was strategically built on a steep hill in Kasese so that it overlooks major safari sites of interest - both Lake Edward and Lake George, Queen Elizabeth and Rwenzori National Park, and the Kazinga Channel.
The Thembo family first camp to the rolling escarpment of Kikorongo in April of 2018, and it was then that they had the idea of building this lodge as a gem of luxury in the heart of the wilderness.
Kikorongo Safari Lodge is comprised of fifteen uniquely designed cottages that are built over 15 hectares of the steep landscape. Each lodge has a custom view of the lakes and immense surrounding horizon. The design of the cottages provides privacy due to the natural untouched bush that they are nestled within.
