At the conclusion of our tour, we loaded up and began our journey to our first overnight, Lake Mburo.
On the way, we stopped for pictures at the equator and browsed the shops for local crafts. In keeping with our schedule, Ben didn’t allow us to linger too long so that we would be able to enjoy a nice game drive on the way through the park to our lodge, Lake Mburo Safari Lodge-where we would spend two nights.
This is the only lodge that I was unable to write a review for. I could not find a property here on Trip Advisor by this name and when I went to create one, I realized there are two properties by the same name in the area and the only one I could find by doing a search was not the one we stayed at so I couldn’t answer the needed questions to start a review.
It was located on the east side of the park, not far from Mihingo Lodge and Lake Kacheera. Overall we would give this property a 5 out of 5.
The rooms were individual little cabins that were arranged on a ridge overlooking the valley and park below. Each room was spacious and clean, each having beds with mosquito nets, chairs, a small table and indoor bathroom with hot water. There was electricity for the lights in the room, but no plug-ins for charging. Each morning the staff would bring tea/coffee to your room for your wake up call.
The main lodge was a large, open air, two story building with sitting areas on one side and dining on the opposite side. A bar was situated in the center with a charging station to charge your camera batteries, phones, computers, etc.
The service was excellent, as was the food. Jude, the House Manager, was exceptional and always made sure we were taken care of while we were there. For a budget to midrange property, this was an excellent value.
