Situated near Fort Portal this labour of love lodge and the location has to be the best in Uganda. The stunning views of the crater lake and Rwenzori mountains from the high vantage point of the lodge makes one feel at peace and the early morning crater walk only served to enhance this with the abundance of bird life and...

I had never been to fort Portal before, it was a new year's resolution to visit the place. I did some google search and trip advisor search and this place was among the places to visit when in fort Portal. I was interested in seeing crater lakes. Surely fort Portal has the best to offer in terms of crater lakes....

My wife and I have travelled Uganda extensively and this is the best lodge we have stayed in. Located on a crater lake, the lodge and cottages are simply stunning. We couldn't believe the rooms when we saw them: a bed so big you could get lost, a luxurious bathroom (always hot water) and that beautiful scent of staying in...

The location of the lodge is fantastic and views are breathtaking. It is located on the rim of a volcano crater lake. It is quite upscale and posh, especially taking the poor villages one needs to pass through on the way into account. The owner is supposed an “ex-backpacker” from the UK who fell in love with the lake and...

Kynaninga Lodge is a fantastic place to stay. Spectacular views and friendly helpful staff. The food is excellent and the owner Steve ,who built these eco friendly lodges,is keen to make sure you have a comfortable stay.... and he succeeds. The rooms are large and airy and we saw colobus monkeys in the mornings from our own private balcony ....

We were warmly welcomed when we arrived at Kyaninga. We were ushered into the main lodge as our bags were taken to our "cottage". We were offered lunch and ate with our guide overlooking the crater lake. The vistas cannot be beat. Our cottage was the last one at the end of the walkway. I must admit there were a...

This was our stop off before heading to Bwindi. The property is a collection of tree houses, with the view of a crater lake. Beautiful, but the smell of mold in our room was overwhelming. Unfortunately I am allergic to mold. The structure of the rooms makes mold unavoidable. The food was marginal at best. Staff was very nice but...

We arrived there at sunset after a long drive. Unbelievable location at the top of the hill, the views were astounding. The owner was very nice and welcomed us at the entrance. We went for a nice run downhill to the lake where we dip into the water. The lake was filaria free so there was no risk. The rooms...
