Enjojo Lodge, named after the birth of a baby elephant on its grounds during construction, derives its moniker from the local Rukiga language, meaning ‘elephant’.
Nestled along the border of Queen Elizabeth National Park’s Ishasha sector, the lodge provides a serene and comfortable haven across 40 hectares of land. Set amidst an acacia forest, scattered grasslands, and lush vegetation adorned with palm trees, it offers a tranquil retreat.
At the grass-thatched restaurant and bar, guests can savor homemade cuisine sourced from our organic garden while relishing the picturesque view of a small natural lake. The lodge frequently hosts large herds of elephants, buffaloes, and antelopes, while resident vervet monkeys, baboons, and black and white colobus monkeys add to the vibrant wildlife. Additionally, the abundance of birdlife makes Enjojo Lodge an idyllic paradise for birdwatchers.
Distinguished by its commitment to sustainability, the lodge operates entirely on solar power and is crafted from locally sourced materials, blending seamlessly with the natural environment. The majority of the lodge’s furniture and decor is hand-crafted by the local community, adding a touch of authentic artistry and supporting the area’s artisans.
