Overview & Features
Katara Lodge is the ideal base from which to explore the park and the many activities it offers, including game drives, bird watching, the famous launch cruise along the Kazinga Channel, chimpanzee tracking in the Kyambura Gorge, and forest walks in the Kalinzu or Maramagambo forests, all of which provide truly memorable wildlife experiences and incredible opportunities for nature photography.
The lodge is keenly aware of the delicate and precious nature of the park and the flora and fauna we share it with. At Katara Lodge they pride in offering a luxury safari experience while minimizing any impact to the environment. The materials used in the construction of the lodge were all gathered locally from renewable sources. The lodge uses extensive rain water harvesting, heat all our water using solar water heaters, and use ultra low flush toilets throughout the lodge.
Similarly, all lighting and electrical outlets are solar powered and use low energy CF or LED bulbs. The salt water swimming pool further reduces our reliance on harmful chemicals.
