About Mpogo Safari Lodge

Originally our humble farmhouse, they needed to make good use of the animals from Lake Mburo national park that paid us a visit every day, Zebras, Buffaloes, Antelopes, and occasionally the odd hyena coming to the salt well. Alas, the idea was born. We welcome you to visit and send you clients to taste the best of cultural tourism and the national park. Our 16-room facility offers midrange accommodation at affordable prices. With a fully equipped kitchen, traditional huts, and camping grounds for your camping needs Mpogo lodge offers the best of both the cultural and modern world.

Why the name Mpogo Lodge?

Mpogo is a name of a traditionally famous long-horned cow that was a symbol of good luck in the Chwezi people, the founders of the Ankole kingdom in Uganda. Despite the fact that the present generation has failed to conserve the Chwezi tradition, coming to Mpogo Lodge will give u a chance to see the only surviving and greatly cherished Mpogo cow.
