Overview & Features

Set on the edge of Uganda’s largest crater lake, this tree house lodge grew out of the forest, peacefully at one with nature. The delicate use of rock, poles, wood, rope, organic furniture and rich textures blend perfectly with the smells, sights and sounds of this tropical hardwood forest. A cracking fireplace combined with a magical atmosphere creates an unforgettable experience.

Much effort and imagination went into the creation of Jacana Safari Lodge, which comes as no surprise when you consider its prime location within the national park and the distinctive and unique design by its creator, Managing Director, Mr. Zahid Alam. Opened in 1998, the winning combination of the beauty of Queen Elizabeth National Park rich in biodiversity with the Jacana Safari Lodge’s delicate style and attention to comfort provides one of the best accommodation facilities in the area.

    this lodge needs an upgrade and/or more maintenance. The Geo-lodges in Uganda are very cool as they blend so well into their environment, creating a natural setting combined luxury and comfort. Jacana is no different. It is located in a forest, and it is like sleeping in a forest — you hear all the animal noises at night, including hippos! Lots of monkeys around as well. Unfortunately, it seems that they have let things go a bit. That said, the setting is beautiful and lodging is beautifully done. It’s about a 20 min drive from the main road, on a dirt track. You actually have to enter Queen Elizabeth park to get to it. The food was decent, and service was just fine. They try to make your stay pleasant. My overall rating however is based on the fact that I have higher expectations from Geo-lodges.
