In the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Mweya Safari Lodge is an old style luxury lodge. High on a peninsula overlooking the Kazinga Channel between Lake Edward and Lake George, the lodge affords one of the most beautiful views in Uganda. Mweya Safari Lodge has been upgraded and renovated and now offers some of the best accommodation in Uganda. The 46 rooms and suites, all with en suite bathrooms and private balconies overlook either the Kazinga Channel or Lake Edward. The suites and the Royal Cottage, occupied by the Queen in 1954, are air-conditioned. Two of the rooms have been designed to meet the needs of travellers with disabilities. Other features are a beautiful swimming pool, a poolside bar, the Tembo Safari Bar, the Kazinga Restaurant serving global cuisine, a souvenir shop also selling essential toiletries, books and safari gear. The elegant, air-conditioned Kazinga Channel Restaurant serves international cuisine from an à la carte menu or a buffet. There is often a barbecue on Saturday nights. Activities include launch cruises along the Kazinga Channel, game drives, nature walks, boat trip to the chimpanzee sanctuary on Izinga Island and bird-watching. There is a swimming pool to enjoy at the end of the day.
