We traveled here after staying at Mahogany Springs. We were welcomed by super friendly staff and taken to their warm and cosy main building where we enjoyed a drink and some nuts before being shown our room.
The rooms were spacious and homely and we were very comfortable throughout our stay.
The boat ride on the Kazinga channel was certainly the highlight of this area. We took a boat with around 8 other people for around 1 hour and saw lots of wildlife including cros, hippos, elephants, buffalo, and I am pretty sure I saw a Leopard up a tree! amazing experience.
At Katara Lodge the food was very tasty and they have a lovely little bar with a variety of drinks.
We even managed to find time to have a dip in the swimming pool (luckily we bought swimwear just in case!).
All in all a great place to stay and lovely experience.
