Lake Kyaninga Lodge is located in the Kibale Forest area of western Uganda. This lodge is in a spectacular setting about 7 km northeast of the town, overlooking a large crater lake and with distant views towards the Rwenzori Mountain. It is a remarkable construction, set on stilts and cascading along the rim of the crater. Public areas are really very attractive and the eight guest rooms are very large and comfortable.
Due to its commanding position, the property is easy to spot as you approach. Additionally, all buildings are elevated on stilts, as are the walkways between them. The most imposing structure is the two-story lodge, which occupies the highest point of the hill. Several flights of steps lead up from the road to the entrance, but the ascent is well worth the effort for both the comfort of the interiors and the breathtaking views.
