Ndali Lodge Highlights

Ndali Lodge overs views from every part of the lodge. Close to Kibale National Park and chimpanzee trekking, Ndali Lodge offers a unique safari experience. The best part about Ndali Lodge is its simplicity. There is no electricity sustaining the lodge and guest cottages, but this does not take away from the nostalgic comforts - in fact, it adds to the lodge’s charm. There is plenty of hot water for each of the en suite cottages, which is pumped from the crater lake below using technology from the late 1700s, which is somewhat of a marvel. Throughout the lodge, candlelight and lanterns provide enough light and create a romantic, tranquil environment, soothing guests to bed gently and embracing the natural lightening and darkening of days.

Ndali Lodge Game Viewing and Activities

The 1000-acre family farm upon which Ndali Lodge is built is full of natural delight. The flora and fauna occurring naturally in the vegetated slopes around the Nyinambuga crater lake host an abundance of life. Some of the special bird species one can see while strolling through the grounds are the great blue turaco, cinnamon-breasted bee-eater, long-crested eagle, and so many sunbirds. Butterflies, chameleons, and dragonflies, frogs, fruit bats, and owls are also part of the lodge make-up, creating an incredible, sensory experience. Guests are invited to relax at the swimming pool, or enjoy lunch on the terrace where views of the Rwenzori Mountains decorate the horizon. Take a dip in the sparkling lake first thing in the morning before emarking on a chimpanzee trekking trip to Kibale 45-minutes away, or a visit to Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary where birding specials include white-winged warbler, white-collared oliveback and papyrus gonolek.
