Jacana Safari Lodge

Set on the edge of Uganda’s largest crater lake, this tree house lodge grew out of the forest, peacefully at one with nature. The delicate use of rock, poles, wood, rope, organic furniture and rich textures blend perfectly with the smells, sights and sounds of this tropical hardwood forest.

A cracking fireplace combined with a magical atmosphere creates an unforgettable experience.

Much effort and imagination went into the creation of Jacana Safari Lodge, which comes as no surprise when you consider its prime location within the national park and the distinctive and unique design by its creator, Managing Director, Mr. Zahid Alam. Opened in 1998, the winning combination of the beauty of Queen Elizabeth National Park rich in biodiversity with the Jacana Safari Lodge’s delicate style and attention to comfort provides one of the best accommodation facilities in the area.


With ten independent luxury chalets, and a family cottage that has two rooms that are joined together, each is curtained by the embrace of the dense foliage of Maramagambo Forest. All the chalets assure its guests of a peaceful and restorative stay with a unique theme of their own. The rooms are spacious and designed to please the eye and provide maximum comfort. They rooms have en-suite washrooms with continuous hot water for showers (heated by gas), tastefully furnished and have an enclosed veranda with large panoramic windows offering picture-perfect views of Lake Nyamusingire allows you to enjoy a chilled sundowner or early morning tea and coffee served by your personal waiter.


The Bar and the restaurant are literally suspended over the lake with a stunning view as you have a drink, lunch or dinner at the lodge. You can even watch the animals while you eat. The food is superb and prepared to International Standards. Lovely and kind service by an attentive staff and here you are overlooking the largest crater lake in Uganda. If you are in your room and want service you ring a bell and someone will come along to tend to your requests.
