Mantana Tented Camp, Lake Mburo National Park, Uganda

lake mburo national park

Mantana Tented Camp is a traditional tented camp which is fairly simple but in a great location for exploring Lake Mburo. The staff are friendly and charming which makes up for the sometimes sparse decor in the camp itself.

This is a small tented camp with only nine well-spaced rooms set in open woodland near the summit of a hill about 4 km from Lake Mburo. The rooms all offer views out over acacia woodland and some of the lake below. The large ‘Larsen-style’ tents are set on wooden platforms, with verandahs overlooking the park. The tents themselves are simple but comfortably furnished with twin beds and an en suite bathroom. The bathrooms have flush toilets, flasks of hot and cold water are provided next to the wash-basins and hot water is always available for a bucket shower. There is a lovely stone and thatch dining and bar area overlooking the lake with comfy sofas and a little open fire, ideal enjoying your pre- or post-dinner drinks. Activities from Mantana Tented Camp include game drives, walking safaris, birdwatching and boat trips on Lake Mburo.
