Mihingo Lodge is a luxurious, family owned lodge in a magical setting adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park. Perched high on a rocky kopje, whose pre-Cambrian granite boulders were formed over 500 million years ago, it has spectacular views over a vast savannah landscape. It is a peaceful and secluded retreat ensuring great views of the valley below with its lake and tranquil forests. The employees are from local Ankole tribe and have received extensive training in hospitality services, and the management is dedicated to providing an exceptional safari experience for every visitor.
Situated on a privately owned land, Mihingo Lodge has 12 luxury rooms, built on wooden platforms and stilts, covered by a thatched roof. Suspended under the thatched roof is a spacious and comfortable tent with en-suite bathrooms, including hot and cold running water, showers, and flush toilets. Each luxury tented room is privately located, enabling guests to enjoy the tranquil environment. Some rooms are situated in a forest setting, some with a lake view, and some on rocky outcrops. The outside walls reflect the colors of the African soil, created with the help of a specialist from Lamu who mixed natural cultured pigments into the cement.
The main dining area is a large thatched structure built from rocks, the wood of dead olive trees found on the land, and native grasses. Three course meals are served buffet-style in the large thatched dining room. The Staff at the bar will also happily arrange a cooler box with drinks for you to enjoy at a lookout point while watching a magnificent African sunset.
