Mweya Safari Lodge is located in Queen Elizabeth National Park, on a peninsula jutting out onto the beautiful Lake Edward. The lodge’s position—surrounded by the magical Mountains of the Moon—allows each guest to look out over the Kazinga Channel or Lake Edward from their balcony and take in the magnificent splendor of the park.
Mweya Safari Lodge is a collection of 44 rooms and two suites, each defined by their simple safari atmosphere and delightful comfort. Individual balconies bring Queen Elizabeth National Park’s majestic natural beauty to the forefront, while private en-suite facilities and cozy furnishings lend to the sense of home. The suites of Mweya Safari Lodge have additional space, with living areas and sofas and minibars for relaxing refreshments after a day of adventure in the park.
For those wanting something a bit more select, or families traveling together, Mweya Safari Lodge’s four cottages present the finest accommodations onsite. The family cottages—Rwenzori and Royal—embody a secluded “Out of Africa” atmosphere, while the ultra luxurious Queens and Presidential Cottages channel a more exclusive, bygone elegance. Each cottage boasts a luxury master bedroom, en-suite bathrooms with sunken baths, an additional twin bedroom, large living and dining areas, kitchenettes, and plasma televisions. Alternatively, four luxurious tents situated riverside provide guests with a more authentic experience without sacrificing the comforts of luxury.
Mweya Safari Lodge recently underwent stunning renovations to incorporate a host of amenities at the central lodge area. Guests have the option of dining indoors in the formal dining room, or outside on the expansive veranda or on the deck adjacent to the infinity swimming pool. Every dining location presents not only continental, Indian, and international cuisines of the highest quality, but also exquisite views over the Kazinga Channel and the animals cooling off in the waters below.
In addition to game viewing activities in and around Queen Elizabeth National Park, it is not uncommon for guests of Mweya Safari Lodge to spot a variety of game including hippos enjoying a graze on the landscaped grounds. The park is also home to at least 604 different species of birds, the largest variety of any other protected area on the continent, making it one of the best places for bird watching in all of Africa. Other popular activities include a launch trip on the channel in one of the lodge’s luxury boats, or an exclusive chimpanzee trekking excursion in the breathtaking Kyambura gorge. After a long day of exploration, return back to Mweya Safari Lodge for sumptuous massage treatments at the newly minted Mweya Health Club and Spa.
