The environment is unique with beautiful landscapes and proximity with nature. A really relaxing time can be enjoyed there. There are several cottages. Each cottage is spaced from each other’s with private, individual wooden platforms, overlooking the lake. The beds were comfortable and mosquito nets were available.The restaurant is very cosy and the balcony outside the restaurant is perfect to...

Lake Mutanda is a beautiful place to stay. Our room had an amazing view of the volcanoes and was clean and comfortable. Swimming in the lake was one of our favourite things to do and the cozy restaurant was a great place to go warm up with a nice drink. The food was terrific and staff were friendly. It is...

No doubts the lodge views over the lake and the Vrungas is one of the most beautiful you will always seen in your life (if weather is clear, of course). Otters and birds (as cranes, cormorants, pelicans) are around, so the setting is amazing. I strongly recommned the boat trip to see birds on nearby islands. The rooms are confortable...

In terms of location the resort is difficult to beat. There are approximately seven lodges on stilts by the lakeside with a dining room and bar a short walk along the lake. The views are amazing and can include the Virunga Mountain range when the mists clear. However, the mists contribute to an ever changing scenery that is hauntingly beautiful....

The resort is on lake Mutanda, a destination that attracts less tourists than others in Uganda, but would deserve more. The lake is incredibly beautiful. The rooms have a wonderful view over the lake and over the Virunga volcanoes just behind it. Rooms are half built / half tented-huts, nice even if a bit small. Comfortable and with a great...

The lodge is well situated next to lake mutanda. When we checked in, the receptionist passed me a welcome drink which has a mosquitos in it, I told her to exchange, she gave me a new one.

The setting is what really makes this place special. Set right on the lake, the sunsets and views are spectacular. The tent cabins were fine, comfortable bed, good mosquito netting. Food was good value and rather tasty, a little bland at times. The only thing that was a bit annoying in 2016 is the lack of decent wifi.

Wonderful two night stay, before and after gorilla trekking. Only water edge location at the lake. Great view of the magical lake. Canoe/pontoon trips were tantalizing but we did not take them. Comfortable accommodations with individual cabins. Good service. Owner/manager living on site.

Excellent value for money with stunning room views over the volcanoes and Mutanda lake. The lodge is built on a peninsula, surrounded by water which makes it quite unique. Rooms are simple, food is good though we wish we had more crayfish (even at extra cost), staff and management really friendly and very helpful. We will definitely go back.
