A great choice of accommodation and experiences

A large, well-appointed lodge with excellent opportunities for land and water safaris

Mweya Safari Lodge has long been established as Queen Elizabeth National Park’s best-known accommodation. It is based on a peninsula surrounded by panoramic views of Lakes George and Edward, where the Kazinga Channel links the two lakes, the Great Rift Valley escarpment and the Rwenzori Mountains.

With 32 standard en-suite rooms; 12 Deluxe air-conditioned rooms and two Suites, this property is large. In addition, there are four Luxury tents, with en-suite bathrooms (showers), fans, dressing tables and deck terraces with lounger chairs. There are two family cottages which offer exclusivity and privacy: Rwenzori Cottage has a master bedroom and two twin bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Royal Cottage has air-conditioning; a double room and one twin bedroom. Finally, two Luxury cottages can cater for the most discerning guests: Queen’s Cottage has a luxury master en-suite bedroom with sunken bath, twin en-suite bedroom, lounge, dining room and kitchenette. The Presidential Cottage is much the same, with an extended balcony overlooking the Kazinga Channel.

Guests can dine indoors in the dining room, or outside on the veranda overlooking the Kazinga Channel. The choice of dishes and menus is diverse. Mweya Health Club and Spa offers treatments, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, a hair salon, sauna, and steam bath. Massage therapies, body treatments, facials, and hair care are all available. Visitors will not be disappointed when it comes to wildlife – there’s usually plenty about in the grounds, including warthog, waterbuck, hippos and even elephant or buffalo. The lodge has an infinity pool overlooking Kazinga Channel, a pool bar and sun-loungers.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
