“The duiker who escaped the lions by diving into our pool in the middle of a BBQ!” - Rebecca

Private Paradise

Views: 369 Visited: Jan 2008 Reviewed: Sep 25, 2015

Perhaps the most difficult to reach of Uganda's parks, but absolutely worth the trouble. We ran the lodge here 2008, and while we (sadly) haven't been back since, the private outdoor double-wide bathtubs overlooking the savanna still fill me with happiness and relaxation just by remembering.
Slightly more crowded than it was during less secure times, you still may be one of less than a dozen vehicles on 1,400 square kilometers.
The best lion-viewing in the country; the best secret sun-downer spots; the largest buffalo herd; red-necked ostrich; elephants that still congregate in immense extended families and answer back to you when you say hello.
So close to Kenya and Sudan, adding this stop to your safari in Uganda is like adding a second country - wildlife and vistas here are different than anywhere in Uganda.
