Nyinambuga Crater Lake

by admin

A dramatic landscape of Crater Lake cupped under steep hillsides, the area south of Fort Portal offers travelers a scenic retreat ideal for long walks and road cycling.

Much of the land is cultivated, but primates and plenty of birds occupy the lake shores. Emblazoned on Uganda’s USh20, 000 note, picturesque Lake Nyinambuga makes a worthwhile photo of all the crater lakes.

Ndali Lodge is a fantastic traditional colonial lodge set in the stunning crater region of Western Uganda.

Built of local stone and thatch, the 8 luxury bandas offer views over the dramatic Rwenzori Mountains; each banda is en-suite with a private veranda. The dining room and lounge offer relaxing views over the Crater Lake.

This is a great base from where to track the chimpanzees of Kibale Forest. Ndali Lodge does have hot and cold running water however all lighting is by candle or storm lantern!  Ndali Lodge is set in a stunning location on the rim an extinct volcano which has now filled with water to become the breath-taking Lake Nyinambuga – 250 acres in size and 130 metres deep.
