Fodor's Expert Review Mweya Safari Lodge
Mweya Peninsula, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Western Region, Uganda
Big groups love the location of this "hotel-in-the-bush," situated on the Mweya peninsula overlooking Kazinga Channel (a popular watering hole for big game), in the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park. Staying here means you're well placed for early-morning game drives or the unmissable wildlife launch cruise; the lodge has its own fleet of very smart boats just for this purpose. Choose from accommodations to suit all tastes: simple en suite rooms; deluxe rooms with a/c; suites and cottages; and a few stylish safari tents (a recent welcome addition). A pool, health club, massage area, business center, and vast gift shop ensure you need never leave. The manicured lawns and shrubbery may feel too tame for safari afficionados, yet the professional staff and central location means Mweya is still the busiest property in the park.
