Mihingo Lodge is a luxurious tented camp that has set the tone for other tented lodges in Lake Mburo National Park. It is located on a rocky outcrop and was designed to blend in with the surroundings. Mihingo is ecologically friendly as it uses solar electricity and a natural water collection system for water.
Mihingo Lodge has luxury tented rooms that are tastefully and stylishly decorated. The rooms are spread out around the property in several settings, including near the waterhole, high up on the outcrop, and deep inside the forest.
The unique charm and individuality of each space create the impression of being in the middle of the bush or a light, airy hideaway. All rooms are well-furnished and offer ensuite bathrooms as well as lovely verandas.
A lounge, bar, and dining area are located inside the communal buildings which are built with timber, stone, and thatch. With a selection of coffees, teas, and alcoholic beverages, the cozy ambiance of the lounging area draws guests for evening chats.
The spacious dining area has incredible views of the park and a steady breeze from Lake Kacheera. The exceptional menu offered is a combination of various cultures, herbs, and spices and is offered to each guest in three courses.
You can enjoy delicious food while observing the unfolding nature drama at the saltlick and water hole below. Any dietary needs including vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, and lactose intolerant ones, can be met by the chef.
To allow parents to dine later and relax, early suppers can be arranged for kids, and babysitters placed in their rooms. The cozy bar area, which boasts a great range of reading material, offers a wide range of drinks to guests.
There are several places at this lodge where you can relax. From the pool beds that overlook the waterhole to the top of the tower where you may enjoy the fresh breezes. The tower area is great for seeing the dawn and sunset, as well as having those afternoon naps.
You can dive into the lagoon-style infinity pool and watch wildlife congregate below to quench their thirst. You can also spend time exploring Mihingo’s vegetable and herb garden or unwinding with a massage in a serene rondavel surrounded by forest.
If you’re looking for something more active, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Experience the abundant wildlife during walking or horseback safaris, game drives, or boat trips. You can also learn more about the local traditions by visiting the local school and community.
