Rwakobo Rock is a family-run, eco-friendly lodge nestled on an outcrop at the boundary of Lake Mburo National Park in western Uganda. This peaceful and secluded lodge overlooks vast mountains and the Ankole ranchlands, and the spacious guest cottages offer stunning views of the surrounding wilderness from their private verandahs.
The property is situated just over 1km from the Nshara Gate of Lake Mburo National Park making it an excellent base for exploring the park.
You can enjoy morning and afternoon game drives where there is a chance to see a variety of wildlife including buffalos, lions, warthogs, giraffes, eland, zebra and impala, plus over 350 bird species.
There’s also an opportunity for night drives where you might be lucky and spot more elusive species such as leopards, hyena and porcupines.
You can also enjoy boat trips on Lake Mburo where you’re likely to see hippos and crocodiles, plus a variety of birdlife that inhabit the areas surrounding the lake.
The lodge also offers guided walking safaris, guided cycle trips, and cultural experiences where you can visit a local Bahima family.
After exploring the park and the surrounding area you can return to the lodge and take a dip in the swimming pool or simply relax in one of the hammocks, before enjoying a drink at the well-stocked bar and watching a spectacular African sunset as you reflect on your day.
