Rwakobo Rock Lodge

Amidst the rugged landscapes and untamed wilderness of Lake Mburo National Park, this hidden gem offers a glimpse into the soul of Africa, leaving an indelible imprint on the hearts of all who wander through its gates.

Nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of Lake Mburo National Park in Uganda, Rwakobo Rock Lodge stands as a serene haven for nature enthusiasts and weary travelers alike. Here, amidst the undulating savannah plains and rocky outcrops, lies a retreat that promises not just accommodation, but an immersive experience in the heart of Africa’s wilderness.

Rwakobo is on a scenic outcrop with breathtaking views. Animals such as zebra, warthog, impala and bushbuck abound around the lodge and often congregate at the water hole beneath the dining area. At night the sounds of bush come to life and allow your imagination to run wild.

Beyond providing a memorable stay, Rwakobo Rock Lodge is dedicated to preserving the natural beauty and biodiversity of Lake Mburo National Park. Through sustainable practices such as solar power and community engagement initiatives, the lodge strives to minimize its environmental footprint while supporting local communities and conservation efforts.



Rwakobo offers private thatched cottages, with solar lighting, flush toilets and solar heated showers, which blend into the natural landscape. The cottages are dotted around the hill taking advantage of rocky ledges and secluded corners. The cottages celebrate the natural lines of the surrounding wilderness. They also provide guests with real comfort and luxury that doesn’t cost the earth. The lodge has 8 spacious cottages and 10 rooms.


At Rwakobo Rock Lodge, dining is not just about satiating hunger but a culinary journey infused with flavors of Uganda. The lodge’s restaurant tantalizes the taste buds with an array of delectable dishes crafted from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Whether it’s savoring a traditional Ugandan meal or indulging in international cuisine, every bite is a celebration of the region’s rich culinary heritage.

Our well stocked bar provides a range of cold Ugandan beers and soft drinks as well as wine and spirits. Hot drinks for those rainy afternoons can also be requested from the bar. So please feel free to ask.

Game Drives

There are some fantastic drives around Lake Mburo National Park. There are viewpoints and picnic spots along some of the tracks. Guides are available to enhance the experience. You can even combine a game drive and walking safari when you take a guide with you.

Night Drives

Night drives can be very exciting experiences. You will have the best chances to see some of the more elusive species of the park such as leopards, hyena, porcupines, pangolins and many more. Recently a giant ground pangolin was spotted on a night drive not far from Rwakobo Rock.

Walking Safaris

Our walking safaris can be tailored to your needs, whether you are looking for a gentle stroll around the rock or a long hike, we can adapt all walks to suit you. Most of our walks can be enjoyed by the whole family. There are a variety of walks both inside and outside the park, reaching nearby hilltops. Avid ramblers can take a few days to explore what Lake Mburo has to offer. Walks are typically around 2 to 3 hours long and accompanied by a guide.

Cultural Experience

As part of the Rwakobo Rock ethos we are passionate about conserving the local traditions and cultures of the Bahima people. We therefore have partnered up with a local family, close to the lodge, that has opened their doors to give the guests of Rwakobo Rock a small insight into the way of life of a Bahima. You will learn about how to make the local ghee while listening to some of the women talk about their traditions and the cultures. Depending on the time of the tour you may even have the opportunity to milk some of the Ankole cows.

Boat trips

The national park runs boat trips on the Lake Mburo every couple of hours throughout the day with the last tour starting at 17:30pm. You will be able to get up close to the hippos and crocodiles that call the lake home as well as experiencing the fantastic bird life that inhabits the surrounding areas of the lake. The UWA guides will make the cruise very entertaining with their stories of the wildlife and the local folk tales.


The birdlife on the hill is prolific. With numerous large fig trees to attract them. Some of our resident birds such as green pigeons, parrots, red-faced barbet, and several nightjars amongst many others. Birds can be viewed from your room or walks around the hill can be very rewarding. The shoebill swamp walk in Lake Mburo National Park is renowned and high recommended.


With the combination of exercise and game viewing our guided cycle trips are hard to beat! We have 15 mountain bikes for hire, or you may wish bring your own bike. Along with our guides we have developed a wide variety of routes, from short flat trails to longer hilly rides depending on your preference.
