Kyaninga is situated perfectly for exploring the fortportal area. If you don’t fancy moving a lot   , you can walk around the crater lake ( beautiful walk) or climb down the 200-something stairs to the lake for a dip.

Kyaninga boosts uganda’s only lawn tennis court which is set next to a boules court amidst gardens that were designed by the London –based garden architect with, no doubt , the best ( possibly in Uganda) intentions but with a tenuous grasp of gardening in the tropics.  The make and design of the lodge is an engineering wonder.

The cottages are spacious and tastefully decorated with big verandas and great views   ,large beds . The rooms at kyaninga should not be called rooms …. They are houses/ cottages with the largest beds … you will be surprised  . but the real highlight here are the bathrooms. Gorgeous bath-tubs with lemon –grass scented bubble-bath  will  make you love this place  .

Room Tip: ask the room with the lake view instead of a forest view…significantly different experience.

The staff and management at kyaninga lodge are really good and cautious. They are very helpful and service minded. The welcome makes you feel at home .  the design of the lodge is quite unique with lots of stairs to climb where ever you –so perharps not the best choice for people with walking difficulties.

Another thing that you will love is the food. This is  by far some of the best food you would have in Uganda safari lodges . Unique menu for each meal after which one can retire to the bar and have a relaxed conversation by the honest and tasty food( which comes in big portions) prepared with locally grown veggies and herbs . All foods are a delight.

You will enjoy every minute of your stay and definitely love and recommend them.
