About This Accommodation

Mweya Lodge is located on a peninsula in the Queen Elizabeth National Park and is surrounded by the Rwenzori Mountains, also known as Mountains of the Moon. The location of Mweya is superb and is the best part about this property. Queen Elizabeth offers great game-viewing which lends itself to excellent activities – gorilla trekking, chimpanzee trekking, crater walk, game drive, water safari, and birding. Or if you want to just lounge around the property, the views over the Kazinga Channel which joins Lakes Edward and George are stunning.

The lodge itself is nice, but not our favorite. Mweya is large and it feels large. But coming with the territory, it offers more in terms of luxuries and amenities. The 32 standard rooms and 4 luxury tents had the best views while the Presidential Cottage and Queens Cottage are ideal for families or 2 couples traveling together. The food here is good and with some resident game running around the manicured lawns, there is an element of fun at Mweya. As long as you aren’t turned off by the size, Mweya is a really nice option.
