At the river Ishasha © copyright 2012

The tree climbing lions is not the only great experience in Ishasha. Our lodge on the park border has a lot to offer for cost conscious travelers and adventurers of all nationalities and ages.  


@ the river is a newly opened affordable lodge with beautiful views of the Ntungwe river and is a short drive to the gate of the Ishasha sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

We offer cottages and tents with beds and soft pillows and pure cotton linen for that wonderful night’s sleep as well as offering space to pitch your own tent. You can have food provided or cook for yourself. Our beautiful site comes with two panoramic view showers and flushing toilets. A dedicated kitchen and friendly staff are there to attend to your every need. Cold drinks are provided for by our very efficient solar fridge and we have a full stock of sodas, beers, wine and spirits.

Our lodge area has comfortable seating which is set up high so you can have wonderful views of the river (a good spot at night to view elephants when they pass by our camp). We have swing seats to relax in during the heat of the day set in different areas of our camp. Our beach area is a popular spot for enjoying sun downers, catching some sun and a brilliant area for children. We also have a small pool. Night game drives can be organized.

Whether you are en route to the gorillas or on a safari trip searching for the tree climbing lions of Ishasha, our lodge is the affordable and convenient option.
