Katara Lodge


Katara Lodge sits just 15km outside of Queen Elizabeth National Park, up on the hillside, commanding sweeping views over the savannah and the Rwenzori Mountains beyond. Proudly eco-friendly and intimate in style, the camp only has 8 large luxury thatched cottages so warm, personal service is assured.


Our Thoughts

Although not in the Queen Elizabeth National Park itself - the lodge offers easy access to the myriad of activities that can be enjoyed as well as on the farmland surrounding the lodge. Offering spectacular views in all directions, it is highly enjoyable to return after a day out exploring for sundowners on the deck.
