The Kipling Lodge is located in a verdant

'jungle estate' on the Nile riverbanks in Uganda.


Its five exclusive cottages as well as the restaurant, 

the bar and the pool are all facing the longest river in the world, at the exact place Kipling would have chosen if he had travelled along the River from the Mediterranean Sea to Lake Victoria. 


From June 2014 to today The Kipling Lodge has been build  with the support of the community of Namakwanda.


Its unique design is the result of an encounter between two continents and the fruit of the fine work of dozens of skilled artisans from allover the country. 


All construction materials have been sourced exclusively in Uganda, from Kapchorwa to Fort Portal, from Kisoro to Kotido. 


The 'jungle estate' is home to more than a hundred species of birds.

Vervet monkeys, iguanas and otters are occasional users of our facilities.

No elephants, nor lions, nor tigers have been spotted so far.

However some unicorns can occasionally be seen.
