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 honeymoon cottage which contains a larger bed. 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

Kibale Forest National Park

Being just 10km west of Kibale Forest National Park, Ndali is your gateway to chimpanzee trekking as the trailhead is just 45 minutes 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.

Local Walks

There are several scenic walks around the estate and our favourite is a 90-minute walk around the beautiful lake.

The meditative walk allows you to immerse yourself in your tranquil surroundings. You may choose to sit for a while on the jetty alongside the 5 species of kingfisher that visit it.

Bird lovers can even enjoy a specialised bird walk. Details of the route will be provided at the lodge.
