Elephant Plains Lodge

Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Perched high on the western edge of the Albertine rift among 80 acres of wilderness, the views from this newly built lodge are some of the best in all of Queen Elizabeth National Park. The six guest cottages and two family cottages all have private verandas, large windows, en-suite bathrooms with tubs and showers, and views that overlook Lake Kikorongo where large numbers of elephant and buffalo congregate. The communal lounge is a great place to enjoy a Ugandan gin and tonic or a glass of wine from the cellar, and you can take a plunge in the outdoor swimming pool where views of the open grasslands can’t be beat. The restaurant has an international menu and both indoor and outdoor seating. We love the lodge’s commitment to conservation—electricity is solar-powered, and the lodge was constructed with reclaimed, local materials that, in true Ugandan style, have stories of their own.
