Ndali Lodge is a fantastic traditional colonial lodge set in the stunning crater region of Western Uganda. It’s a charming, delightful lodge with magnificent views over one of the most beautiful areas of Uganda. It has the feel of a family home, and you’ll be very well looked after by the friendly, cheerful staff during your stay.
Built of local stone and thatch, the 8 luxury bandas offer views over the dramatic Rwenzori Mountains; each banda is en-suite with a private veranda. The eight self-contained stone cottages are spread throughout lush, colorful gardens along a ridge looking out over rolling green cultivated hills lined with banana plantations, dotted with crater lakes, with the rugged Rwenzori Mountains as a backdrop.
The dining room and lounge offer relaxing views over the Crater Lake below. At night the dining room is festooned with candles – the lodge has no electricity or generators to destroy the tranquility and atmosphere although there are solar lights in the cottages.
This is a great base from where to track the chimpanzees of Kibale Forest. For the more adventurous it is also possible to go for an early morning dip in the Crater Lake! Ndali Lodge does have hot and cold running water however all lighting is by candle or storm lantern!
Ndali Lodge is set in a stunning location on the rim an extinct volcano which has now filled with water to become the breathtaking Lake Nyinambuga –250 acres in size and 130 metres deep.
Below the lodge, on the lake itself, is a sturdy jetty, set in the most tranquil and secluded spot and frequented by 5 different species of Kingfisher. From here guests can swim in the lake, soak up the sun or simply get away from it all.
