Delve into the depths of East Africa’s natural splendour with once-in-a-lifetime chimpanzee tracking in the Kibale Forest, or hike to the top of the Rwenzori Mountains for panoramic views of the lush hills of the Kabarole region. This destination accommodation offers a gateway to a welcoming temperate climate and lush mystical countryside.

As an exciting addition to the Volcanoes Safari circuit, Kibale Lodge offers you an exclusive and intimate retreat into luxury with a touch of rustic charm. A unique feature of the lodge is the inclusion of a personal butler, ready to assist with all your holiday needs and desires. The lodge’s sublime location and on-site amenities will fill your days with outdoor adventures such as exciting primate trekking and daylong hiking excursions, or simply relax at the camp booking an indulgent spa treatment.
