Woodland Lodges is a brand under Mamaland Safaris who have experience of lodges and safaris in Uganda. We wish to offer great value for money in comfortable rooms, with safari style design, friendly service and tasty meals with a local touch. Our chain of lodges consists of Pumba Safari Cottages by Kyambura Queen Elizabeth National Park, Topi Lodge by Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Hornbill Bush Lodge by Murchison Falls National Park.
We opened our first lodge in 2013, this was Pumba Safari Cottages located on the escarpment overlooking Queen Elizabeth NP. This lodge has since then built a name for itself as a great budget lodge offering outstanding value for money with cozy cottages, friendly service and magnificent views. Our happy visitors have shown their appreciation with great reviews on TripAdvisor, who has rewarded us with their Certificate of Excellence for four years in a row. In 2017 we added to the chain of Uganda lodges with Hornbill Bush Lodge located just a 5 min drive from Tangi gate to Murchison Falls National Park. This lodge has a bush lodge setting close to nature by the mighty river Nile. From the elevated restaurant you can see the sunset over the Nile and then have a relaxing night in our spacious cottages. In 2019 the latest addition to Woodland Lodges came with Topi Lodge, a 5 min drive from the southern gate to Queen Elizabeth National Parks Ishahsa sector. Topi Lodge borders the park on one side and on the other side it has an impressive view out over countryside and mountains in the distance.
For all our lodges we have, when possible, used local materials and tried to incorporate crafts and natural details as much as we can. This strategy has resulted in a safari style feeling that most of our visitors appreciate. We like to give you a taste of Ugandan local food and can arrange for a local style dinner at any of our lodges if you wish.

Our lodges are located in remote areas close to the national parks and we like to support the communities around to share the benefits of tourism. By Pumba Safari Cottages we have set up a community walk leading through the close by village creating a connection between the community and tourism. We have made donations of clothes, shoes and other useful things to members of the community. Around Topi Lodge we are supporting an initiative to stop poaching in the park as well as sell crafts made by a group of ladies in the community at our crafts shop.
