Katara Lodge, Queen Elizabeth National Park Featured

Katara Lodge is the ideal base from which to explore the Queen Elizabeth National park and the many activities it offers, including game drives, bird watching, the famous launch cruise along the Kazinga Channel, chimpanzee tracking in the Kyambura Gorge, and forest walks in the Kalinzu or Maramagambo forests, all of which provide truly memorable wildlife experiences and incredible opportunities for nature photography.

The Safari Lodge is keenly aware of the delicate and precious nature of the park and the flora and fauna we share it with. At Katara Lodge we pride ourselves on offering a luxury safari experience while minimizing any impact to the environment. We use extensive rain water harvesting, heat all our water using solar water heaters, and use ultra low flush toilets throughout the lodge. Also all lighting and electrical outlets are solar powered and use low energy CF or LED bulbs. Our salt water swimming pool further reduces our reliance on harmful chemicals.

The lodge offers accommodation in seven luxurious thatched cottages on a beautiful stretch of hills overlooking the open savannah in a serene and relaxing atmosphere. Each spacious cottage was hand crafted using locally available materials and carved into the hillside by the Katara village community. The cottages combine wooden floors, grass thatched roofs and canvas that can be folded away for uninterrupted views of the park stretching out below. Our water is heated using solar thermal energy.

There are currently 6 regular cottages and one family cottage.

The regular cottages have one large open sleeping and sitting area, with a double bed and a four poster star bed that can be wheeled out onto the veranda to sleep directly under the starlit African sky (only recommended during the dry season!). The bathrooms are luxuriously fitted – the romantic roll top bath, or the invigorating rain shower, provide a perfect way to unwind after a thrilling day on safari.

The family cottage has two separate bedrooms, a small sitting area, and a bathroom. It has a double bed in one bedroom, and two single beds in the other bedroom, with space for a third bed if you are travelling with three children. In addition, the family cottage comes with a small private outside sitting area with a swing couch and two hammocks.
