Jacana Safari Lodge, Queen Elizabeth National Park

Jacana safari lodge is located in Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda.Jacana is one of the oldest lodges in the park. It is a pioneer in the eco-lodge segment of safari lodges in Uganda.

Jacana Lodge is set on the edge of Uganda’s largest crater lake.
The lodge was carefully and artistically designed to blend into the natural environment.
The clever and imaginative use of rock, poles, natural wood, ropes, locally sourced organic furniture and rich textures blend seamlessly into the setting of this tropical rainforest. Much effort and imagination went into the creation of Jacana Safari Lodge complimented by its location within Queen Elizabeth National Park.

Jacana Lodge was opened way back in 1998 and has since hosted many a visitor to this beautiful tourist destination of Uganda. Jacana Safari Lodge’s cool style provides one of the best accommodation facilities in the area for guests who appreciate beauty, comfort and style.

Queen Elizabeth National Park and its environs are blessed with so many crater lakes. Lake Nyamusingire, on which Jacana Safari Lodge is situated, is Uganda’s largest crater lake.

The Captain’s Table, a one-of-a-kind floating pontoon. We think it is the best way to enjoy the great views of the lake and for dining. It can be hired and booked for any meal of the day or for sundowners and for exploration of this fascinating areas


Kayaking on Lake Nyamusingire is a wonderful day's adventure for guests to Jacana Lodge. The kayaks take each 2 people and a picnic basket to explore the lake's edge as you soak in the cool breeze from the lake.

Boat Cruise on the Kazinga Channel:
The boat cruise along the Kazinga channel is a marvellous way of feasting your eyes and camera lenses to the abundant game and wildlife as they come to the lakes shores to drink . The Kazinga channel joins Lakes Edward and Lake George. The banks of the channel host a multitude of crocodiles and teeming birdlife plus herds of elephants. The boat cruises are arranged twice a day from the Park Headquarters. The Lodge can supply takeaway picnic drinks and packed lunches if required.

Wildlife Drives:

Game drives take place along the Mweya peninsula and the Kasenyi plains of Queen Elizabeth National Park. The game seen during the game drives will include herds of buffalo, elephants, warthogs, leopards, lions and antelopes. In the Ishasha sector of the southern part of the park is where we spot the famous tree-climbing lions .

Forest Walks:
Walking safaris are probably the best way to explore the environs of Jacana Safari Lodge.The forest walks offer immense photographic opportunities for birds, fauna and butterflies.
