The Lodge has been built using local, onsite materials to create a stunningly unique atmosphere for visitors to truly appreciate the beauty and magnificence of the Mabira Forest Reserve.
Boasting over 100 species each of birds, butterflies and insects, 3 primate species and a crucial part of the reserves biodiversity, the RainForest Lodge – Mabira exhibits the peace and calm of an equatorial hardwood rainforest in the heart of Uganda.
Currently, there are seven double rooms and five twin rooms. The rooms are ensuite, with luggage racks, comfortable seating areas, balconies overlooking the forest, and windows that provide a 180 degree view of the forest. The temperatures in the rooms are controlled by natural climate of the forest. The RainForest Lodge is an ecolodge. The lodge runs on hydroelectric power, with energy saving bulbs. Meals are cooked on gas. For showers, the water is heated by solar power fitted individually on each room. We use natural cleaners that will not pollute the surrounding forest. Recycling is done of all sorts of plastic and paper products. There is a tree nursery that is growing indigenous forest species to replant areas that have degraded within the forest.
