Primate Lodge Kibale

Kibale National Park, Uganda

As the only lodge in the renowned Kibale National Park, a sprawling rainforest that is home to over 13 different species of primates, nothing beats the convenience and charm of Primate Kibale Lodge. But what really stood out for us, was the warm, local hospitality. 

Comfortable, bright and airy, the nine spacious and ensuite Luxury Cottages each feature a king-size bed, a sitting area and private veranda with beautiful views of the forest. Honeymooners, those celebrating an anniversary, and couples will delight in the privacy of the Honeymoon Cottage. During your stay, expect delicious menus served on the spacious dining terrace, a well-stocked bar area, massage treatments, a library and evenings spent around a communal campfire.
