Rwakobo Rock is a peaceful and secluded retreat where you can breathe in the essence of wild Uganda. The 8 comfortable and spacious cottages are dotted around the hill, all very private and offering great sunset views. The main dining area overlooks an expanse of rock that adjoins the park. Set in the pristine Ankole ranchlands surrounding Lake Mburo National Park; whether you want to sit back, sip on an ice-cold drink in a hammock or head out into Lake Mburo National Park for a day of exciting exploration, there is something for everyone here.
Rwakobo is nestled 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.
This idyllic spot is situated just over 1Km from the Nshara Gate of Lake Mburo National Park. Day or night excursions into the park are very worthwhile. The drive from the main road passes through the lovely Nshara government ranch, where the magnificent Ankole cattle graze peacefully alongside herds of Zebra. The bahima pastoralists of the area, still live traditional lives and are excellent custodians of the natural landscape and its biodiversity.
Rwakobo offers a variety of both easy and challenging walks offering the chance to get close to nature. Rwakobo also offers mountain biking and caters for night drives, while the park can be discovered by vehicle, foot or boat.
Every night (weather permitting) the friendly Rwakobo staff stoke up a camp fire so you can watch the sunset explode into a brilliant starlit sky.
