Lake Mutanda is in a beautiful corner of Uganda. This lodge has sweeping views of the lake and of the Virunga volcanoes in Rwanda, and it is a good base for gorilla tracking in the Rushaga sector of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Explosive colours one can only love or hate ... I loved them
We were there and the weather was cool but comfortable. I normally wore pants and a long sleeve in the day and put on a light jacket as the sun was going down. I also wore a jacket the day I spent on the lake as it was raining a little that day. I saw others bundle up a little bit even though I believe it was in the 60's so a fleece or a jacket thicker than a wind breaker might not be a bad idea just to be safe.

Liebe Frau Ruetten, vielen Dank für Ihre Nachricht. Darf ich Sie bitten mir kurz zu erklären, was Sie mit "African Queen Safaris" meinen? Wenn Sie mir Ihre e-mailadresse mitteilen, können wir gerne auch per mail korrespondieren. Vielen Dank und afrikanische Grüße Doris Meixner Chameleon Hill Lodge

"The lodge's design ensures that all rooms have stunning views."
"They are all lovely."
"There is a steep walk to the rooms. Choose one close to the main lodge."
"Try to get a room that is close to the restaurant, as it is a long walk to the farther away rooms."
"Every room has a view!"
