The well-appointed Crater Safari Lodge is situated in a prime location on a hill overlooking the second largest crater lake in Uganda. The views from the lodge are breath taking, and the 21 rooms (deluxe chalets or standard cabanas) either have a full or partial view of the crater lake below. Close to the lodge is the famous Kibale National Park, home of the chimp trekking safari.

Chimp trekking, outdoor activities and numerous cultural activities in the immediate area can be booked during your stay.
Guests have the choice of staying in deluxe thatched chalets with expansive wooden balconies, or pool facing standard cabana rooms. Rooms, whether deluxe or standard, provide the perfect luxurious jungle escape. All accommodation has partial or full views of the tranquil crater lake and its pristine surrounds.
