Kyaninga Lodge is set in Western Uganda’s district of Fort Portal. It is set against a stunning backdrop of Lake Kyaninga and the legendary Mountains of the Moon. Overlooking stunning Lake Kyaninga with the backdrop of the Rwenzori mountains beyond, Kyaninga Lodge is the spectacular result of one man’s vision.
It took six years of unwavering commitment and over one thousand hand carved logs to create an experience of Africa unlike anywhere else. Kyaninga Lodge offers nine exclusive luxury cottages surrounded by unspoilt natural beauty with breathtaking vistas.
Kyaninga Lodge was built by Englishman Steve Williams. Standing one day on the rim of the ancient crater lake at Kyaninga he was inspired to embark on a remarkable innovative project. His creative vision resulted in a stunning luxury lodge, unlike anything else in Uganda.
An incredible feat of innovation…
Two years were spent training the local communities in the skills required for the lodge´s construction. It was built over 6 years without cranes or lifting machines, from locally sourced sustainable wood. It now runs almost entirely on solar power.
Kyaninga Lodge was completed in 2010, an incredible feat of innovation and collaboration, leaving a team of qualified Ugandans to continue eco building in Uganda.
The exceptional design and sheer scale of the main lodge is immediately apparent from the moment one crests the hill and Kyaninga Lodge comes into view.
