The best Uganda safari lodges can be found in forests, on mountains and along rivers, which is exactly where the best Uganda safaris are experienced. Take a look at our favourites, which fall among Africa’s best safari lodges, and see where you’d like to hang up your safari hat.
Uganda contains some of Africa’s wildest and most remote wildlife destinations, and the best Uganda safari lodges are more than up to the challenge of keeping you comfortable in a range of climates.
Cloud-forest lodges provide a warm welcome as the gorilla-shrouding mists swirl outside; classic-style safari camps make the most of the undulating terrain and both capture breezes and offer views.
At some lodges, the wildlife literally comes to you, so being able to watch and wait in comfort is an important design consideration. At others, the experience – such as gorilla trekking and chimp trekking – is all about getting out there, and the transition from relaxation to action is managed with aplomb.
The Nile River in its many moods seems to symbolise the undeniable energy that flows through Uganda. After forcing its way through the narrow gap of Murchison Falls, Africa’s mightiest river reverts to being a more languorous, meandering watercourse – an accurate reflection of the combination of adrenaline and calm this country offers.
The genuine hospitality you’ll experience at each of the luxury Uganda safari lodges we’ve selected is merely an extension of the national character. A smile costs nothing, but you’ll treasure these ones forever.
Whether sheltering in the shadow of ancient, moss-draped trees or gazing out across a vast swathe of rolling grasslands, each of our favourite luxury Uganda safari lodges fits perfectly into its setting.
