I had the Pleasure to stay Overnight, at this small, and very nice Lodge. They were fantastik in service & Cooking. My Room was very Nice and from my point of you newly renovated, from the restaurant the surroundings were excellent with a lot of birds. I think my guide Abia Atukwatse made a list of above 40 species.

A small and very comfortable lodge, just outside the Northern entrance to Murchison Falls National Park. I found my room very comfortable, with many small details thoughtfully well designed - reading light, bathroom fixtures etc. An excellent shower with plenty of pressure and lots of hot water

why stay with us

Woodland Lodges is a chain of small scale safari lodges in Uganda. Our aim is to offer friendly service at comfortable safari style lodges in close to nature locations.

FRIENDLY SERVICE

That first impression at arrival sets the tone for your stay so we make sure to make it a warm welcome. At our lodges you are always with a smile offered a glass of juice at arrival together with a wet towel to wipe the dust of the travels away. From that point of welcoming you our team is there to make your stay comfortable. Don’t hesitate to ask if you need any assistance.

COMFORTABLE SAFARI STYLE LODGES

Our Uganda lodges are budget level lodges offering comfort with safari style settings. The fact that we have budget lodges doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be comfortable. With Woodland Lodges you can expect a comfortable bed, mosquito net, charging in the room, private veranda or balcony and en-suite bathroom with warm water. The safari style comes from using natural local materials in construction (like grass thatches and timber poles) as well as from decorating with kitenge, local art and masks.

CLOSE TO NATURE LOCATIONS

For each of Woodland Lodges outstanding budget Uganda lodges we have carefully chosen a special close to nature location. If you look at the pictures you see for yourself that each of our locations has something that makes you go “wow!” and that has been exactly what we have wished to achieve. Pumba Safari Cottages is located on the escarpment with stunning views over Queen Elizabeth National Park. Topi Lodge is by the wilderness of Ishasha. Hornbill Bush Lodge is on the banks of the River Nile. Tilapia Lodge is on the shores of Lake Victoria.

MEALS WITH A LOCAL TOUCH

At all our Uganda lodges we offer meals with a local touch when possible. It can be vegetables made in a local style, a side dish of cassava for breakfast, tasting matoke for dinner or if you wish a full Ugandan style meal. It just makes us happy if that’s your request! The food is such a big part of a culture so we really wish to give our visitors the opportunity to get a taste of Uganda’s delicacies. Above we haven’t even talked about the fruits… Uganda might be blessed with the tastiest pineapples and sweetest mangos around. Meaning that your fruit platter for breakfast is something to look forward to.
