Mabira Rainforest Lodge is a luxury eco-lodge set within the nature rich Mabira Forest Reserve in the heart of Uganda. This serene and tranquil lodge overlooks the dense rainforest and guests can enjoy spectacular views of the surroundings from their wooden cabins or from the lodge’s restaurant, bar or open lounge.
Mabira Forest Reserve is located between Kampala and Jinja. Rich in biodiversity - including a number of endemic and endangered species - the forest boasts 312 different species of trees, 315 species of birds and 218 species of butterfly.
Guests at Mabira Rainforest Lodge can explore the reserve and enjoy activities including guided walks with the lodge’s in-house naturalist, mountain biking along the forest trails, and zip-lining.
The lodge also offers guests a unique opportunity to track rare Mangabey monkeys. Mabira Forest is one of the few places in Uganda where you can see Mangabey Monkeys and there are three habituated groups which can be tracked with guides who were a part of the habituation process.
After enjoying activities within the forest you can return to the lodge and enjoy a drink at the Canopy Bar as you listen to the sounds of the crickets and watch red-tailed monkeys jumping from tree to tree around you.
At night you’ll hear the sounds of owls hooting and you might even hear the loud, terrifying, territorial calls of a nocturanal tree hyrax.
