Isunga Lodge

Isunga Lodge decent budget accommodation in Kibale Forest with great views

Isunga Lodge is a relaxed, owner-managed lodge in a unique setting overlooking the green expanse of Kibale Forest in Western Uganda.

With magnificent views of this beautiful rainforest, the huge peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains and onwards to Lake George and the savannahs of Queen Elizabeth – we can see 3 national parks all at once.

Isunga Lodge boasts a unique position beside the rainforest and also in the midst of the crater lake area, making it the perfect base for exploration of this wonderful region. Get close to nature, enjoy the great outdoors, meet the community or just slow down and relax in this restorative location.

Isunga Lodge has just eight simple, stylish cottages spread around our large grounds we offer privacy and serenity, in a natural wild garden setting. You may feel like you are the only ones around. Owners Gerry and Karen are always on hand to help, advise on activities, travel and more, we offer a friendly, personal touch and very warm welcome to our guests.

Our Cottages

Our eight tranquil cottages provide comfortable, quality accommodation at affordable rates. Enjoy the lovely views of Kibale Forest from your private terrace surrounded by nature and see how many beautiful birds you can spot.

All cottages have charging facilities, mosquito nets, flush toilets and hot showers. Our family cottage sleeps 4, with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and sitting room.

Please note that our cottages are spread over a hillside which means some walking up and down hill, so may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.

Our Facilities

Panoramic views from our restaurant and lounge make this the perfect place to relax, read, enjoy a drink or just catch up with friends.

We love food at Isunga and are lucky to have access to a wonderful range of ingredients sourced from the local markets, together with fresh organic herbs and vegetables from our own garden.

We usually have set menus for lunch and dinner, and flexibility is no problem – we are happy to cater for any special dietary requests. Lunch is 2 courses, with a main and dessert, while light sandwich lunches with fresh homemade bread are also available, as are salads from our garden. Dinner is a 3 course meal, with starter, main and dessert. If you would like to try some local food, just ask and our chefs can prepare this for you.
