Enjojo Lodge is located at the border of the famous Ishasha sector of the Queen Elisabeth Park. Spread over an area of 40 hectares amidst acacia forest, lush vegetation, palm trees and scattered grassland, the lodge offers world-class accommodation at relatively affordable prices. Birdlife is abundant and herds of elephants, buffaloes and antelopes are regularly spotted around the lodge. Vervet monkeys, baboons and black and white colobus are some of the regular visitors too.
Enjojo Lodge offers comfortable accommodation to suit all budgets. In the main lodge area there are three thatched cottages and one Safari House, allowing a total of 16 guests for a quiet and intimate retreat. The cottages are interlinked with an elevated wooden walkway, and each room has an en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower with hot and cold water. On the wide verandas, guests can relax, overlooking the surrounding bush and savanna. Enjojo Lodge can be booked by families as well as private groups of up to seven guests and has its own outdoor kitchen.
From the grass-thatched restaurant and bar, guests can enjoy the homemade food and the scenic beauty of a small natural lake that also serves as a watering hole for the wildlife of the area.
Set away from the main lodge area – in the middle of the acacia forest – Enjojo Lodge also offers budget a
ccommodation in an African bush setting of bamboo huts and canvas tents. These affordable accommodation options provide a common toilet, shower and cooking facilities for campers who come with their own tents.
The lodge is entirely constructed by local builders using local materials to blend in with the surrounding environment. Most of the furniture and decoration have been hand-crafted by the local community.
The land under the Lodge is big enough for guided walking safaris on the grounds of the lodge. Game drives can also be arranged in and outside Queen Elizabeth Park in open-roof safari vehicles. Bicycles are available for rent for those who want to discover the life of the local community in the village located approximately three kilometres from the lodge.
Our stay at the Enjojo Lodge was an exciting and comfortable one – we had been rescued by the Park rangers from the Ishasha jungles after our jeep developed some snag and found ourselves for the night at this oasis in the jungle. The owner of the lodge, A Belgian lady by the name of Kristien Debref, was very kind and helpful and offered us discounted rates for the night and showed us around the property.
The food on offer was simply mouth-watering delicious and the service staff were very helpful and friendly. All in all, a perfect place to stay when you are in that part of the woods.
