What makes Ndali Lodge special?
While the lodge itself will not disappoint, it is the owners, managers, and staff who really make Ndali special, with a little help from the 3 family dogs who will be very excited to greet you. 'Homely' sums up Ndali perfectly, and you can spend evenings enjoying dinners by candlelight and cocktails on your private veranda.
The lodge has wonderful story to tell, and every traveller who passes through leaves feeling uplifted, having forged a connection with a very special place, and that's not something most lodges can easily claim anywhere in East Africa.
Rooms & Amenities
Ndali Lodge has 8 cottages and 1 large hooneymoon cottage. All the cottages have ensuite bathrooms with great views over the countryside and lakes that dot the landscape. The lodge is built on the edge of a crater lake itself which makes for a wonderful view from all the cottages (and the luxury bathrooms found within!).
The main building leads out into a swimming pool, and the dining area has a very romantic feel. Laundry services are complimentary.
Activities around Ndali Lodge
Being just 10km west of Kibale National Park, Ndali is your gateway to chimpanzee trekking as the trailhead is just one hour away. While the main draw will always be the chimpanzees, there's plenty more to discover around Kibale with both the Bigodi Community Wetland Sanctuary and the Toro Crater Lakes making for wonderful support adventures.
Please note that we do not handle lodge only requests. If you are planning a wider adventure in Uganda and want expert support, we are here to help and would love to hear from you.
