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.

Very special lodge on top of a mountain. Sleeping in tents but that said excellent quality. Your shower cut out in the rocks. Horse, ATB, and all sorts of safari's. Loads of animals to watch closely. We didnot spot the leopard, but it is there so we will have to come back shortly

I was impressed by Kimbla Mantana Lake Mburo Camp! I stayed here for 1 night during my one-month Uganda trip. It’s a very charming and peaceful place with very clean and spacious tents. The lodge has an amazing view overlooking Lake Mburo and the surrounding area. It’s a perfect spot to photograph a beautiful African sunset over the lake. And because it’s located within the national park you’ll feel very close to nature. There is WIFI available in the main (dining and lounge) area; not in the tents itself. The tents have an en-suite bathroom with a bush shower, meaning there’s no running water but one of the staff members will fill a bucket with 20 litres of hot water. A showerhead is attached to the bottom of the bucket, so it’s basically like a normal shower. It provides enough warm water to wash your hair and body and it was actually one of the best showers I’ve had during my trip! This camp is one of those small gems where I felt immediately at home. I found it hard to leave this place and when I come back in the future I would at least stay for 2 nights. One night just wasn’t enough for me. I would recommend everyone to visit Uganda’s smallest national park and this luxury tented eco camp - on a hilltop within the park - is the perfect place to absorb the beauty of Lake Mburo National Park.

Perhaps the most authentic "safari" camp we stayed in during our Uganda trip and, for us, a chance to really relax into the surroundings and just watch wildlife and birds around the property from the comfort of our deck or the dining room/lounge area. We like the back-to-basics feel of a canvas tent and bucket shower; the sound of wild animals around the accommodation after dark. The menu is limited but tasty; there is internet even here for those who need to stay connected. Yes the furnishings and fittings in our tent were elderly and the extra single bed did limit the amount of floor space; but everything worked and we slept well. Only real grumble was the extremely cheeky exchange rate on our USD; they billed in shillings and we weren't carrying any; so a little firm negotiation was necessary to reduce the rip-off price they attempted. The paths around the site are rough gravel/scree so a torch is handy to navigate safely after dark, altho you will be escorted to your tent.

This Lodge looks out towards the savannah and lake, with fabulous views from the dining and communal areas, where there is wi fi and comfortable sofas. The tents have separate areas for sleeping and bush shower/flushing toilet. The food was good and the staff were excellent. The beds were comfortable.

We stayed for one night as part of our visit to Lake Mburo national park. The place is wonderfully situated and very serene and quiet, and the surrounding and views can be enjoyed from the pleasant outside dining and relaxing area, as well as from the patios in front of each tent. The staff was friendly and service minded. There is a flush toilet for each tent but the water for the shower is filled from a bucket outside the tent meaning you need to alert the staff before you plan to take a shower. Now to the downsides: I made the reservation one week in advance. Being a vegetarian I am used to bringing my own supplements or just eating rice and beans for every meal whenever traveling in Uganda (which I have done a lot, both for business and pleasure), but since the only option was full board and the place is quite expensive I wanted to make sure that I would get something that made the price worthwhile. I was promised that they would make special food for me and asked questions about what I could eat. Upon arrival the staff was confused and asked the same questions again, and for the 2 warm meals I ended up being served the same as the meat/fish dishes just without the meat or fish and instead with more of the canned tasteless vegetables that were served as a side. Pretty disappointing! I was told on the phone that we did not need to book the walking and boat tours in advance yet when we arrived the staff told us we should have booked it in advance and we were just lucky to get space and not have to pay extra. There were a few additional minor annoyances that made me feel that the place is overpriced. That being said, if you value luxury and having staff attending to your every move while in the camp, it may be worth your dollars. The tents were beautiful and the beds were also the most comfortable I have slept in in Uganda, maybe even ever!
