Enjojo Lodge

Enjojo lodge is a quiet and comfortable accommodation facility that is bordering the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth national park which can visit while on your Uganda wildlife safari. This is because the Ishasha sector is famously known for its Tree – climbing lions which are a major highlight for travellers who have visited Uganda. The experience of these lions resting and lazily hanging on the fig trees is unforgettable and a unique attraction. The Ishasha sector is also home to buffaloes, elephants, the strikingly beautiful Topis, and several bird species.

Located within green vegetation and a serene environment, the lodge offers comfort in its thatched cottages and one safari house. The lodge is built by local materials sourced from the community. While at the lodge you will be mesmerized by the unique furniture and décor that was hand-crafted by the local community. The lodge’s wooden walkways connect the cottages.
