The conclusion of a wonderful week of safari. Loved the lodge and its amazing chef. The tent was very comfortable and the attached bathroom stylish and wonderful. We had one raining day and lodge staff went out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable. I will return.

Make sure when booking what room you're getting as some of the rooms are a fair distance from the dining room and all up hill. Also make sure to take a torch as it's pretty dark getting back to your room.

Response from Ralph Schenk, Owner at Mihingo Lodge
Responded 29 Jul 2022
Dear Joy, Thank you very much for staying with us and thanks a lot for your feedback. We really hope you enjoyed your time at Mihingo Lodge. You are very right the rooms are quite far apart, to give each room the feeling of being alone in the wild. Each room has its own private space, and you can’t see any other room from any of the rooms you chose. This does involve a bit of walking to some of the rooms past lovely trees and rocks with the chance of seeing different birds, bush hyrax or even klipspringers and sometimes other animals. Some of our return guests even chose the rooms furthest away as they are most private and closest to the animals, but you are right if you have walking difficulties or really don’t want to walk down steps, please let us know and we will make sure you are in one of the closer rooms or in one of the rooms that don’t involve many steps. I totally agree it does make sense to take a torch when you go on safari, but I want to point out that all the paths to the rooms are attractively lit up, but a torch is advisable especially when walking down the steps, we do offer torches in each of the rooms and all guests are walked back to their rooms after dinner by one of our staff with a torch. All our staff are putting in a huge effort and we are very disappointed getting such a review as we have been extremely busy in July and nearly all our guests have absolutely love Mihingo Lodge and can't stop raving about the food, the staff, the location and the actual lodge.

We were a group of seven from the US. We loved the accommodations with the beautiful views from our decks particularly with our coffee in the morning watching sunrise! The food was outstanding as well as the service! Everyone was friendly and helpful. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the pool overlooking the national park relaxing in the afternoons. Several of us did the bike ride around the lodge which was quite enjoyable. We stayed here at the end of our Uganda trip and would definitely recommend the lodge to anyone traveling to see the gorillas or chimpanzees!

Very friendly and welcoming lodge. A lovely, relaxing end to our holiday in Uganda. The staff, Topi, Melon and Rona were all fun and very efficient. The food was excellent- the vegetarian options were delicious. The rooms were lovely and we had a verandah overlooking the waterhole. The bush babies were gorgeous

We first visited here 10 years ago but only had a short night here before going on to the Gorillas, so this time we made sure we had a longer stay as we knew this was a special place....and it certainly didn't disappoint. From first arrival and seeing the bushbaby - which we missed last time- the mainly female staff could not have been more open, friendly and helpful...despite our best attempts to keep arriving late or last to meals due to the amazing environment outside the camp. With the stunning location on the hill and unique designed lodges supported by the open eating area and pool/bar this was a lodge you could easily spend all day in just relaxing...but with guided walks, night drives and quiet viewing there was a strong call of the wild as well so it was a hard choice getting the balance right...but in a positive way. Best view in the house from our lodge was on the loo!!

This was the first stop on our Uganda Safari. While we were not that impressed by Lake Mburo NP, this lodge was so lovely that it made this stop so worth it! The sunrise views from the room were unbelievable - we had our coffee delivered and watched the stunning sunrise from our own huge terrace. The views from the dining area are amazing too - we could see a lot of zebra and baboons at the watering hole below. The service was amazing, and we were sad to leave!

Amazing lodge with fantastic view, great food, the sweetest staff, unique individually designed rooms, and extraordinary service. Make sure to pick a room with as low a number as possible- the hike to your room may otherwise be as challenging as the gorilla tracking…

We stayed two nights at the Mihingo Lodge and it was the best hotel we stayed at during our two weeks tour in Uganda. First of all, the rooms are beautiful, super clean, very nicely decorated, every detail is thought of and we loved the mix between tent and room. The rooms are created on the rocks and blend nicely with the environment. They are very seperated from each other, so you enjoy a lot of privacy and don't get any noise . The place and the views are magical and really surpassed our expectations. The bathroom is stunning with a lot of hot water and good water pressure. The food was abolutely incredible with a mix of ugandan and international dishes. We did a community walk with a guide from the hotel (Meron) and loved the experience. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, spoke excellent english and we will never forget the experience. Last but not least we would like to thank and recommend the staff at Mihingo Lodge. They are so passionate about their work, so friendly and professional at the same time and they care deeply about their guests. Everybody was so lovely, so hardworking, they kept asking how we we were, what they could do and if we needed anything. We could tell their interest was coming from their hearts, They had a very rare mixture between professionalism and kindness that you rarely find. Thank you Topi, Clea, Meron and all the others! We recommend staying 100% at Mihingo Lodge, it will be a unique and beautiful experience!

Nice staff, wonderful views from the pool and from the tower. The Bush babies are adorable! The ride on the lake would be great if you’ve just arrived but as this was our last stop, it was a little long. This is a great place to stop on the way to/from Bwindi.

Response from Ralph Schenk, Owner at Mihingo Lodge
Responded 8 Jan 2022
Dear Guests, Thank you so much for your review and the positive feedback. We totally agree the boat trip run by Uganda Wildlife Authority is not the most spectacular one you can do in Uganda and is more about birding and enjoying the views. Other activities are much more popular like horse rides in the Park, several different walking safaris either from Mihingo or walking with the giraffe inside the Park, a variety of interesting game drives including one to Kazuma viewpoint. If you are staying several nights with us night game drives with a good chance of seeing leopards can be very exciting. The cultural walk or visiting one of the schools we support in non-Corona times are fun activities. Just relaxing at the pool or having a massage is great after the sometimes-challenging gorilla tracking. We offer guides for mountain bike safaris and running outside the park, or you could play tennis on our court in the middle of the African bush if you prefer more action. I hope you had a fantastic trip in Uganda. Kind regards, Ralph
