The Amuka Safari Lodge positioned in the pristine savannah woodlands of Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary present an ideal wilderness stay for travelers on safaris in Uganda. The Amuka Lodge presents a natural sharing moment with the southern while Rhinoceros in the typical wilderness of destination Uganda filled with other fauna and birds.
The Amuka Safari Lodge presents cozy
accommodation that may not be expected in the wilderness of Africa
especially for the first time travelers on a safari in Uganda
who presume that it is only bush. Featuring unfenced chalets, the Amuka
Safari Lodge allows the guests to have a secluded feel of the
wilderness with no man made barriers.
Following the re-introduction
of white Rhinos in the year 2005, the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary grew in
popularity to become a famous Uganda safari destination and thus there
was a need to have an accommodation establishment that would cater for
overnight visitors. Additionally, there was a need to devise the means
of increasing the financial sustainability of the sanctuary and with
this background the Rhino Fund Uganda called upon the Genade Family to
set up a lodge.
The Genade family worked out the startup capital
along with construction costs that saw Amuka lodge emerge. Apparently,
the lodge provides 10 percent of its earnings to the Rhino Fund Uganda
to assist in the operations of Rhino Conservation. At times the guests
at the Lodge opt to leave donations at the lodge where 100% of this
money goes to Rhino Conservation Initiative. The ground breaking for the
lodge occurred on September 8th 2010 and the catchwords of
authenticity, naturalness and privacy were main emphasis. This enabled
the lodge to match with the environment and ensure the comfort of the
guests among which include the travelers on Uganda safaris. The materials include timber, canvas and natural stone.
The Amuka Lodge features the main lodge that contains the well laid
restaurant, well-stocked bar along with a sun deck that are handcrafted
using the mahogany beams and the planks of time r that were abandoned at
a saw mill in Budongo about thirty (30) years ago.
Amuka Safari Lodge features eight (8) units of which two (2) chalets
feature two (2) bed rooms that are ideal for family stay. The four (4)
chalets are deluxe and each chalet features one bed room, a bathroom and
the dressing room. The two (2) units feature three (3) distinct
bedrooms where each room has its own verandah along with a private
bathroom. Every chalet is named after the Rhino in various languages of
Uganda. All chalets feature expanse private verandas and self-contained
Amuka Lodge uses solar power to keep environmentally
conscious and this is used to heat water and lighting. The food waste at
the lodge is recycled. This is a typical Eco-friendly environment that
you can opt to sleep in while planning safari to Uganda.
