Great lodge, great service, great food, great rooms....don't miss the boat ride on Lake Mburo to see the fantastic birds and hippos! Uganda has some fabulous wildlife lodges and fabulous people and this is one I would highly recommend.

We only stayed here one night on our way to Bwindi. The camp was wonderful and set in a beautiful location. The only downside was it rained the entire time for the afternoon and evening we were there so could not enjoy the splendid view, until the next morning when we had breakfast. The food was delicious and we were... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of an 8-day Safari in Uganda. Our tour agency actually had placed us at Arcadia Cottages in the park which we found awful when we arrived. We complained to our tour organizer and they were able to set us up here. What a difference. The accommodations did not feel like a tent... More

Such an amazing place to stay. Quiet and extraordinarily comfortable. The staff are wonderful and attentive. The meals were wonderful and served with a flourish! Management was fantastic and friendly. The location can't be beat. Be prepared for hot afternoons and cool evenings. The early morning safari was the best. The River cruise was good, but not as good as... More

We ended up staying here because our original hotel, Mhingo lake lodge, was overbooked. This accommodation was in Lake Mburo national park, and was beautiful. The tents were luxuriously appointed and very clean, with panaromic views of the park. What I liked about the camp was how eco it was. They left hot and cold water in flasks to wash... More

This was our last overnight stop of a two-week tour in Uganda. It was the only place we stayed which was actually inside a National Park. We were certainly close to nature, with warthogs and impala being regular visitors around the site. The main building has lots of comfy seating and restaurant tables. Food was provided within a set menu,... More

Stayed here in July 2013. Once again, I arrived late - it was already getting dark. The setting is incredible. Service was wonderful and staff is highly attentive - then, I was the only guest for the night which was most awesome as it was so quiet. I really enjoyed my stay. In the morning when I returned for breakfast... More

We were the only guests staying here for the two nights of our trip so it felt like our own home but with staff! The tents are large enough for 3 people with nets over the beds, good changing area and separate flushing toilet and interesting shower area operated with the assistance of the staff filling the large water containers....

We loved the chef at the Mantana Tented Camp. We are vegetarians and the soups and entrees were not only the tastiest of our trip, but the display was beautiful. The tents are on nice wooden platforms with excellent views of the lake. They pour hot water in a large container when you want a shower. The tents are quite... More

Like Lake Mburo National Park itself, this lodge is a hidden gem. We used it as a stopover en route to Bwindi to see the gorillas in the hope of catching sight of a little savannah game (maybe a leopard). But its much more than a stopover! We arrived just in time for sunset and spend the first 3 mins... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy this unique wilderness location as it was meant to be experienced - under a canvas roof in the grand old safari tradition. Our classic tented camp is environmentally friendly and low impact, built to complement and not compete with its natural setting. The self contained guest tents are set on raised wooden platforms that provide stunning views of Lake Mburo, while the main lodge building is a luxurious blend of natural rock, wood and grass. ... more   less
