Located just outside Uganda's renowned Queen Elizabeth National Park, Katara Lodge is perched on the Kichwamba escarpment, formed as a result of ancient volcanic activity. The lodge offers excellent views over the 72 craters, Lake Edward, and the Virunga and Rwenzori mountain ranges.
Go on game drives in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and explore the savannah, dense papyrus swamps, crater lakes, and the extensive Maramagambo Forest, as well as the forested Kyambura Gorge. The area is host to almost 100 mammal species and over 600 different birds. Look out for hippo, elephant, buffalo, lion and hyena, as well as the indigenous Uganda kob and the giant forest hog. Other activities include boat cruises on the Kazinga Channel, chimp tracking, and village walks.
