Overview & Features
Lake Nkuruba is a beautiful crater lake situated just 25 km south of the picturesque town of Fort Portal in Western Uganda. Nestled amidst the stunning landscape of the Rwenzori mountains and the Kibale National Park, this ancient crater lake and surrounding Nature Reserve supports an abundance of wildlife and has been uniquely unaffected by deforestation.
Guests of the reserve enjoy close encounters with four species of indigenous primates. Most significant among these are a troop of the endangered Ugandan red colobus monkeys. In addition to these rare and remarkable animals, our guests regularly share the company of beautiful black and white colobus, vervet and red tailed monkeys.
Bird enthusiasts will find the reserve and its lush forest a haven for several species including the Great Blue Turaco and the Black-and-white-casqued Hornbill. Visitors to the site will commonly enjoy sightings of banded mongoose and squirrels, whilst some may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of our resident but elusive cobra!
