Katara Lodge is located near Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, and is situated on the Kichwamba escarpment – formed as a result of ancient volcanic activity.
This beautiful area boasts 72 explosion craters, undulating hills and deep, lush valleys – affording some incredible scenery. The escarpment location ensures amazing views, which can be enjoyed from the main deck or from each of the 5 luxurious thatched cottages.
The rustic feel of Katara Lodge is apparent in the thatched roofs, local woods used in the flooring and walls, and the hand-crafted furniture – yet it is all beautifully put together.
The Queen Elizabeth National Park has a diversity of habitats – forest, grassland, woodland and wetlands – ensuring a wide variety of animals, including hippo, elephant, buffalo, lion and hyena. The indigenous Uganda kob and the giant forest hog are also often seen.
From game drives and Kazinga channel cruises to chimp tracking and interpretive village walks, Katara Lodge is ideal as a gateway to the biodiversity of the surrounding Ugandan wilderness.
