What makes Kyaninga special?

Kyaninga Lodge is fantastically located just north of Fort Portal. This makes it a great base for chimpanzee trekking in Kibale Forest, exploring the snow-capped peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains, or heading into the lowland tropical forests of Semliki Valley. On arrival, you're immediately struck by the design, huge cottages cascading across the crater rim of Lake Kyaninga, connected by a central walkway that itself sits on raised wooden beams. 

Dig deeper and you soon realise why Kyaninga has become a go-to option for mid-range accommodation. The cottages are extremely spacious, with wooden floors and eucalyptus beams forming their frame, extremely large twin or queen size beds, private en-suite bathrooms and a private veranda that overlooks the crater lake and countryside beyond.

Amenities & Activities

The main lodge building has a spacious dining hall, a bar, and a lounge area centred on a fireplace. The lodge has a swimming pool, as well as a tennis court and croquet lawn. The crater lake is the cleanest lake in East Africa, the pristine waters are great for canoeing or swimming! Being outside the main town of Fort Portal means there's plenty of opportunity to learn more about rural Ugandan life with guided walks around the lodge.

Most travellers base themselves in Kyaninga if they're heading into the Rwenzori Mountains, Semliki Valley, or Kibale Forest National Park.
