I am puzzled where to start to review this place, starting from welcoming you the moment you stop your car porters can come to greet and welcome you to the lodge. The Lodges are big with very comfortable and huge bed along with a balcony overlooking the Lake. Staff is amazingly helpful and ready to go extra mile for anything...

My husband, one year old son and parents stayed here for one night on our way to Queen Elizabeth and it was a great decision. The lodge was beautiful and well decorated with beautiful views. The food and service were amazing! We went on the crater lake walk in the AM which was perfect for our family. We wish we...

Stayed here for three nights, March 2017, wish i could have stayed longer. The staff and manager went above and beyond their jobs to look after us. The food is beautiful and then there is the view, the huge balcony, cocktails, open fire in lounge, the lovely rooms and a swim in a crater with the cleanest and most crystal...

Kyaninga Lodge is a beautifully located piece of paradise! The backdrop of the Kibale National Park and the misty Rwenzori mountains created an unrivaled atmosphere as we enjoyed our breakfast on one of the many deck terraces available to guests. The regions' crater lakes are unique and cannot be ignored when talking about Kyaninga's lush and green surroundings. Nature trails...

Next: free laundry which can really be helpful after Gorilla trekking Food : amazing. Don't be afraid to try the local Ugandan dishes. The matoke, beans of all colors and sizes and the vegetables with a peanut sauce...

I just got back from a weekend stay at Kyaninga Lodge; and god am I IMPRESSED!!! The lodge is beautifully located next to the picturesque Kyaninga Lake and Rwenzori Mountains which was a stunning backdrop for my escape away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The individual lodges are simply amazing, raised on wooden stilts and connected by...

We stayed in three different lodges in Fort Portal; Ndali, Papaya and Kyaninga. Kyaninga was our last stay and we are very disappointed at their service. The view is amazing and the lodge itself is beautiful. Nevertheless, I would not recommend it. The service was very disappointing. 1. As we arrived, not only was our room not ready, we waited...

Situated near Fort Portal this labour of love lodge and the location has to be the best in Uganda. The stunning views of the crater lake and Rwenzori mountains from the high vantage point of the lodge makes one feel at peace and the early morning crater walk only served to enhance this with the abundance of bird life and...
