Nestled in the heart of Uganda’s crater lake region, Ndali Lodge is a special place waiting to be discovered.
Three generations of the Price/Sturdy family have owned, farmed, and shared Ndali with visitors. Their attention to detail makes for an incredible stay. Eight luxurious cottages are comfortably furnished with four-poster beds draped in fabric and locally crafted materials. Each cottage comes with an en suite bathroom with a shower, a toilet, a deep bath, and a sink. A private terrace overlooks the gardens towards the Rwenzori Mountains in the background.
The lodge sits at the center of 1,000-acres of privately owned fertile farmland still cultivated in a traditional style and producing bananas, vanilla, tea, coffee, cassava, sorghum, and millet. It is also perched on the rim of an extinct volcano, which has since filled with water forming the awe-inspiring Lake Nyinambuga. The lake is 250-acres in size and 430 feet deep. In the background stand the magnificent Rwenzori Mountains known as the Mountains of the Moon. Less than an hour’s drive away in the rainforests of Kibale Forest National Park, chimpanzees flourish. Kibale is home to Africa’s largest concentration of chimps. And other primates, birds, and butterflies also call the area home.
